Training is fantastic at present. Its always ‘good’ as its a huge part of me.
But at the moment its on another level.
Things are definitely moving forward for me even at 51 I feel awesome. I do feel like I’m improving, granted gaining back my younger self. But I’m defiantly gaining.
This is in part I think to Lou my son who at 14 is getting his feet firmly planted into this sport we love.
He has found the love of iron himself, not by my pushing or whatever. I was happy with all the sports he tried. But then he tried some training and the iron bug bit him.
I know he is hooked for life.
I feel his passion – I’m living it again, his on point is mine.
His excitement is mine.
And I love it.
I’m so lucky and blessed to live the life I had again.
Training is awesome as I said.

We all love to train, you really don’t know how much until the years click by and you reflect.
Being able to still ‘kill it’ as you get older is a good feeling that lives inside you.
Happy to be still cracking on.
Like an old warrior I will not go down – I will make forward progress as much as can.
Live it love it guys.
