I have always fancied doing one, I believe it's so important for the mind and the body to try new things.
Snowboarding was a challenge, a real challenge but I became competent and that made me happy!
My latest challenge is a little bit different, many people take on the challenge and I have no doubt some have had to conquer the same fear............ WATER.
You would like to think I can ride a bike albeit I need to ride the skinny tyres version and yep I can run if I have to but the first discipline involves me learning something new and something that since the age of around 7 has been a life long fear which is swimming and specifically in open water.
It's early days and I am taking lessons and at this stage its 50/50 if I can or indeed will make it to the start line at the begging of June for my first event.
As an Instructor and Coach it has given me a gentle reminder of the frustrations, fears and doubts that many of the guys and girls who I have coached over the years have experienced.
I will keep you updated.......
