UPDATE! 25 Oct 2010

It is with great sadness that I write this update. On the 25th October 2010 my little sister sadly passed away at the age of 31. She had bravely battled MND for 11 years. She had never given up and had achieved to much even after developing MND, winning the Open University award for achievement to gaining a degree. She will be greatly missed and will for ever be in our thoughts. Love you sis :D

Well where to start, it was all originally done as I was carry to much weight and wanted to loose it. Which I am sure it most peoples story begins, however after loosing the weight I actually started to enjoy running outside. Joined some forums (BCTTT & Runners World), there inspiration and helpfullness has helped me a lot. Now I am also swimming and commuting a couple of times a week to work on my bike! Now since 2011 I accomplished more than I thought I ever would or could. From 5k runs to an Ironman in 2014 and The Outlaw in 2015. In 2016 I am going down a different route, I will be trying Ultra's as you can see from my events I have already entered 3 so far. Now I thought wait a minute I need to have one more motivation and that people is my sister Emma. Since the age of 20 she was very unfortunate and developed MND (Motor Neurone Disease), she is now 31 years of Age. Her health has deteriatated over the years and we nearly lost her last year. My mum had to give up her work and become a full time carer for my sister and my dad takes over the duties when he comes home from work. All the races I do will be in aid of my sister and all money raised will be donated to MND to help raise awareness and research in the disease. Thanks for all your help and enjoy my training blog,

Happy New Year

Well I hope everyone had a good New Year and of course Xmas. Was everyone good last year and got all they wanted from Santa? Well I did get some bits for my bike and some money to purchase a Turbo. Have been keeping myself busy swimming before Christmas. Mind you like most people inbetween Xmas and New Year did no training what so ever. Had to look after Yvonne as she was and still is not well. Erin was good and yes I did all the cleaning, washing and even started the spring cleaning wasn't I a good boy :D.

Today I even went to the gym did 2 and a half miles on the treadmill and did 5 miles on the bike with stretches and warm ups and of course cool down at the end. Had a shower and my lunch. Which consisted of  chicken sandwhich (white bread I know I know) red pepper, diluting juice and a yogurt (weight watchers I will add). Problem is I can feel the wee niggle I had before in my leg not as bad as it was though. Will book an appointment with another Fizz and see what they say.

Hope the rest of you enjoy what ever you are doing
