Great post thanks. One thing I do have is stubbornness and an all or nothing mentality. To the point it takes over my life. I prepare well, recover well and listen to my body.
I'm aware of the task ahead. I trained for London in 4 months losing 3 stone to get fitter for it, I was 3 stone overweight when I started. I tend to be very dedicated and get a buzz from feeling like a professional athlete, this stems form a failed rugby league career lol, almost went pro. So I tend to live out that in my training.
I've done 5 marathons so know what to expect and trained for 3 months for this years ironman so understand the intensity when in full training.
I am also aware cycling will be the biggest issue I have and have started to build that up, I will be at 80+ mile so on a mountain bike by xmas to get my engine better, plus the turbo too.
Running when Im fit I can do a marathon in under 4 hours. Swim is fine and will improve massively when I lose the 3 stone.
