Additional details sent on the google doc.  

Mine started by getting ready for a backpacking trip with my son.  While I could *do* the trip as I was, I would enjoy the experience a lot more if I lost some weight and got in shape.  That was 2004 with the trip in 2005.  I lost 35# and had a great trip, but that put the mountain behind me and I needed something else and that is when I found triathlons.  Many miles later, I've done 3 IM's and maintained a relatively healthy and active lifestyle for 10 years.

Why is it so hard to start over after an extended leave from the sport. When it comes to training we can't live in our glory days!

Does it matter how fast you go? Does it matter if you win? No. It only matters that you tri your best and smile when you cross the finish line.

Your programme was a great help in getting my training organised and balanced. Your web site has been a great help.
