After a bloated Christmas I've decided that to avoid the onslaught of the Dad Bod I had best do some exercise, and what better way than to put it off for 6 months.
In June of this year I will therefore be doing the 'Sprint' version of the Windsor Royal Triathlon, which is a kind way of saying it's a bit shorter than the full event. I'll be attempting to swim (or sink) 750m, cycle 20km, and run 5km - all back-to-back, dressed in what can only be described as a lycra sweater-vest-with-shorts-attached.
I'm putting myself through this to raise money for a brilliant charity called The Reasons Why Foundation. They do incredible work helping ex-offenders to integrate back into society, and building relationships with them.
Please do check them out, and if you can, chip in and let's see if we can make a difference for such a great charity (and my waistline).
If you want to follow my training, I'll be putting stuff up on Strava - so if you want to enjoy watching a man struggle then this could be your bag. Search for Chris Brees on there.
The first thing we do, is listen. For many of our clients, this is the 1st time they've been heard.
