Typically made a plan and the dates change.

Announced a plann in my last post and then one of the core events has changed the date, from June to September.  Gonna have a think about how to approach this. The White Bear is a tough course, but it would be rewarding. Maybe an early season 1/2 IM somewhere sunny......

New life, new direction.

It'll be blatantly clear to any that know me would agree that the last 4 years have seen big changes in my life.
I now have 2 wonderful (Even though at times i would disagree with that adjective.) children that have sucked a lot of my time.
I have (Silently.) battled with mental illness, though now feel I am on the right course with regards to medication and other treatments.
And I took up cycling, which led to doing a few triathlons, albeit not very fast or efficiently. And it has been this latest change which has led me to decide to leave gaming, oh and FoW v4 has helped with that.
So all my gaming and military modelling kit is going. I'm keeping the board games I have for the time being as they are less involved when it comes to time.
The proceeds from the sale of all of this stuff is going to be used to fund my 2018 goal of competing/completing Ironman Italy. Which isn't going to be cheap. I am already entered into a 1/2 distance race in June as part of the preparation and hope to competing in the very local GOAT this September as a short term goal.
My plan for this blog is to simply change the focus but keep the title, I've paid for the domain.
So sorry to say that my very random and infrequent posts related to gaming have come to an end, though I'll not delete the older content as it's still recieving traffic.
Be prepared to enter the world of pacing, heart rate zones, power zones and why High5 gives me the shits....
