Every journey starts at a different point with unique circumstances, limitations and constraints for any individual. An individual’s start point is often unique as is their journey as they commit and strive towards their goals.
I for one have had many different start points. My first start point when initially beginning to compete within triathlon events was having a very broad training background, based on lots of activity whilst being naive to structure and planning. Since then completing a degree in Sports and Exercise Science has enabled me to back up my enthusiasm with knowledge and expertise.
This knowledge and expertise has never been more needed than now as I start again from a polar opposite starting point. A starting point that has seen very limited physical activity for a prolonged period of time. due to injury followed by a frustrating rehabilitation pathway, that has seen many false dawns and disappointing regressions back to pain and discomfort in daily life with triathlon training and racing being a very distant possibility.
Thank fully I am now at that start point beginning my journey back towards training and racing in a sport that gives me so much enjoyment and has given me countless personal challenges and achievements that makes it so worthwhile. Its been a long road to this point but now more than ever I can look forward to a year of competition and challenges in 2019.
So, whatever your circumstances, your limitations and constraints make that start and begin your unique journey and enjoy where it takes you.
A modest ride on Zwift has been my starting point, but yours may be very different.
