My body is strong and it got me through my ironman training and Ironman Vichy. It has also gotten me to the ripe old age of 43! We’ve had a few injuries, well more than a few but it still keeps going. It also has asthma and a heart condition but still keeps going.
It isn’t perfect but I appreciate what it is capable of.
I love my shoulders and upper back – they are so strong. Although my arms are long. Long levers make great swimmers apparently! Matt might disagree.
I don’t like my legs – I always refer to having fat knee overhang – I think I just carry more bulk around that area. I think my legs are big – but I don’t think I’ll ever have thin legs. My legs are long too although they do not make me a fast runner!
I don’t like my chest – it’s too small but I am not having surgery!
I like my tummy although when I eat too much … it extends… like a little pot belly.
I don’t weight myself. I am not a fan of scales. I prefer to measure – or use my jeans as a good indicator.
My body shape hasn’t changed much in the last 10 years to be honest. I am much stronger though by including kettlebells as well as teaching Kettlebells.
I eat a relatively good diet. I won’t lie, I don’t eat clean. I have a healthy balanced diet. A little of what I fancy daily.
This isn’t a post looking for compliments or opinions – this is just how I feel today about me, my body and I!
Your sad Ironman, who cycled today (and didn’t enjoy it) x
