I'm 50 married, divorced and remarried. 3 kids CJ 19, Jim 18 and Morgan 8.
Two weeks before my 44th birthday I had a midlife crisis and decided to do a triathlon. Not unusual you might think but this was from the woman who weighed 16 and a half stone and had done NO exercise for 20plus years.
Since November 2007 I've trained really hard sometimes, and sometimes rather sporadically and all that I can say is it has been a totally life changing experience.
I've completed 5 Sprints so far - I failed my ambition to complete an Iron Distance event before I was 50 however never to be deterred... Chester Marathon 5 October 2014 .I'm sure I can fit in a 2.4mile swim somewhere and 112 mile bike could be a training ride? There will be months of blood, sweat and tears....Welcome aboard.

Not exactly bricks but a setback all the same.
Woke up on Monday with a tickly cough. Not a problem did my Stretch and Strength programme.
Tuesday the cough was definitely chesty so did Claire Nadir Boot Camp DVD instead.
Wednesday it was worse. Had my flu jab in work and did absolutely nothing.
Thursday a definite chest infection, antibiotics off the doctor and a basic write off of the rest of the week.
I’m not happy but I guess sometimes life throws you lemons. I’ve just mixed mine with honey and hot water.
No work this week so plenty of time to play catch up.
