I’ve set goals and missed them, fluffed them, lost my nerve, forgotten about them, talked myself out of them.

So when @bowelbabe started promoting @yourgotri I said - v quietly - I’ll do a whole triathlon on the last day of the month. Well, @sarah_bracken123 was listening and she took the challenge in her stride and so that’s how I found myself striding across v icy fields to @stokepark this morning to complete a bike, run and swim course. I set a target of 20km on the bike, Sarah pushed me to 25km. I ached at 3km and said I’d had enough - she made me do 5K and I knew there was no point in even suggesting 30 lengths instead of 50. That’s the thing with goals, it’s easy and absolutely fine to not make them. But if you can be persuaded to at least try....you might just surprise yourself.
