Just planting the seed…

Posted by admin

Today I did my swim session with Ben, who is our Chisel Fitness CHEK trainer.

Ben completed the Gold Coast Half Marathon on the weekend and has also completed the world famous London Marathon.

A couple of days ago I mentioned that Ben should join me on the Journey to Ironman…just planting the seed early. 

Today’s swim session was a good opportunity for us to punch out a few laps and hopefully it gave Ben the opportunity to think “this bloke is no good in the pool….if he can do it, I can do it!”  More than likely though, the thing running through Ben’s mind was “I wonder if I can get to the TAB and put some money on Chris not finishing this thing”.

Either way it was good to train with someone and have a bit of a chat along the way (not under water….we had the odd stop or 10 at the end of the pool).  About 1km which isn’t huge but I am starting to get a little more used to turning the shoulders over slowly and making more effective use of the pull under water. 

Next on the ‘To do’ list is lift my arse up and start to kick.

I’ll keep you informed on the recruitment drive for PortIM 09.
