“Nothing that’s worth anything is ever easy” Mike Hall.
I am going to try and blog again!!! I used to blog about mountain biking a bit, then life changes and it took a back seat. So I have decided to take on a new challenge which is to do an ironman triathlon. The idea has always been there in my head but never really came to anything until I started to take my youngest swimming. Whilst she practiced I started to lane swim and was quickly lapped by my eldest who is thirteen, so being competitive I decided I wanted to get faster.
Obviously entering an ironman was the motivation I needed, to be honest though it was. Most of the mountain biking I have done has been endurance, so I have a tendency for the longer events. So I am going to talk about what it involves, but I haven’t turned my back on mountain biking, I just needed a new challenge.
The other decision I made since the last blog was to live life as a vegan. living with someone who is a vegan, I found my diet changed, then listening to people like James Aspey it struck a chord with me. It is not easy; the reaction from people varies from person to person. But this is my blog so I also would like to give an insight into why I made this decision, and maybe convince others why it is a good decision, maybe break some of the stereotyping associated with this growing movement.
