Hi all, I read a book last week(don't know if I can name it so I won't) about a chap who said he couldn't swim, ride or run, I think he hangs around here sometimes.
Anyway it inspired me because I cant do any of those things either, well actually I can just not very well. So I decided to have a go myself. I've just signed up to the local gym and am looking forward to getting started. I'm posting here as a way of recording my progress and hopefully getting to chat to like minded people.
Just as a side note I mentioned my enthusiasm to a work colleague and after he stopped smirking he asked if I was going to be an Ironman, yes I said. O god.......
Andy's on here - his name's "IronHolgs" -you'll normally find him on "fatman to ironman" or some of the pirate threads.
I found his book really inspiring too - it really reminded me how anyone can do it - they just need the determination to do it!
Well hopefully I'll get to thank Andy one day on giving me the push I needed to get started, and anyone else I encounter along the way.
I've also read that book and thought it was a great read and very inspiring also.
Which book is it? It sounds just the thing I need right now?
Hi Ickle Legs, its called Can't swim, can't ride, Can't run. Andy Holgate (Ironholgs) the chap that wrote it posts on the forums here. I thought it was a great read
