Setting up a blog is fairly easy. Making a decision to do an Iron Man distance race before we turn fifty… maybe a little more daunting. Still, both can be achieved from the comfort and safety of one’s own office. Only the latter can be actually achieved by getting out there and doing it. Okay, enough of that. I need to head out and chop up some wood for next winter. By that stage, it should be ‘down’ season, and all thoughts will be turned to a training programme for the big day. The plan is to do an Iron Man distance event in 2016, all being well. So we have plenty of time.
