I’ve always found this one difficult - i spent 15 years chasing impossible career choices (for me) where the stress put me sectioned within months or a year repeatedly.
now i gave up on career, i want to do an Ironman
i’m obsessed with getting a £2000 road bike which i can’t afford, and i have an electric bike (which i love but when i stress about long distance triathlons i want to sell) and a cheap sporty hybrid
I hardly cycle but I want to do an I ironman - i want to go with people now, but i’m Aspie and i don’t know anyone, find socializing excruciating.
I’ve done a 60 mile bike ride, 3 half marathons, swimming is not great - i’m overweight not that far from obese.
I’m not even motivated enough for basic training and i have no confidence in my abilities.
I’ve already speeded up running with the cross training - but i’ve done nothing for 10 days and i’m starting to doubt my sanity
I am now going to spend all my money on a multi sport coach once a week.
I think if i can get this done then maybe i can earn that road bike by the time i’m 40. (birthday money and my savings for a holiday)
I think this sounds about right,
i’ve signed up for a 1500m swim in March, a Half Marathon in April, a sprint triathlon Run/bike/swim 750m/25miles/5k
and an olympic distance triathlon Run/bike/swim 1500m/40miles/10k in September
These are huge goals, at the moment i’m practically hibernating with all the excuses and do nothing but beat myself up before i even open my eyes every morning.
