Well I have finally got myself into gear and started exercising again!!!
With job changes, moving houses, getting married and having two kids over the last 6 years my exercise keeps getting pushed back and pushed to the side and obviously laziness has come into it at times.
I recently started getting on the turbo trainer again though and trying out Zwift after reaching the mature weight of 17stone and absolutely loved it! although the fitness left rather quickly the dream of an IRONMAN has never left and now I have entered my 30's and very much settled, I think its a good time to actually commit to it 100%.
I have been doing some research on what IRONMAN to target and think a sensible option is Barcelona 2022 for several reasons. My asthma kicked off when jumping into the water in a UK tri once so would feel a little more confident entering (slightly) warmer waters of Spain. It's easy to get to. It's abroad which for some reason I find more exciting than a UK one for my first and I could swing a little holiday in with the family straight after as well. finally the flat bike and run takes some of the stress away. I know a flat bike course can also bring its challenges but I would be more confident going into it I think
My Question is this, Has anyone done IM Barca and would they recommend it especially for a first timer?
