I'm Podds and I need more than one sock I fear
Last year's failure at IM Austria knocked me for 6 in a way I still just can't believe and isn't really like me - just came at the wrong time of my life I guess along with a few other things
So out of retirement for 1 final IM
Swim should be ok (slow but not troubling cut offs); bike I've done a couple of centuries recently but am still too slow currently but it's work in progress........then the big problems start so my targets are
1. weight loss, this last year has seen me balloon to fattest ever from not exactly slim last summer - overall need to lose around 4 stone but prior to my target race (approx 12 weeks time) 2 1/2 stone needs to disappear
2. set a structured run programme which my completely knackered knee will tolerate and more to the point stick to it - which having failed twice this week to get out of bed for a measly 2 miles will be the problem....
