Finally done it! Wasn’t fast (4hr 20m), wasn’t pretty (nearly drowned in the swim, fell off the bike, got cramp on the run) but I bloody did an Olympic length triathlon on a savage course. Raised £k for @clicsargent! - Thanks to so many people like PT @theyerfitness @jo_theyer, and @shane.snell @nasher.rachel who got me through so many training sessions and helped so much on the day. Thanks to Isabel (daughter of Nick Swan) who inspired me all the way round. Thanks to everyone who came and cheered along, amazing!!! - Most of, thanks to @jilly_barr (Amazing wife) who was there from the very start and gave brilliant advice and encouragement throughout. Would never have done it without her support and The first person I looked for when I was struggling. - I am never doing it again!!! @trimaxevents #writingthisinMcdonalds #mallardspiketriathlon #triathlon #triathlontraining #triathlete #fitness #fitnessmotivation #workout #swimbikerun #instafit #instafitness #diet #nutrition #boxing #boxinglife #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #running #cycling #swimming - #DoYouEvenTriathlonBro #fitnesswanker #neveragain

What a disaster of a potential final 10k run before the #triathlon. Had to go have a “wild poo” half way round, thank god for doc leaves! - The triathlon is just two weeks away now. Eek! So this could be my last long-run training video. Sad times 🙌🙌🙌 - An ok time (for me) of 1hr 15mins and would have been better if I hadn’t had to stop for some sheep and needing the loo! - #triathlontraining #triathlete #fitness #fitspo #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #weightlossjourney #fitnessjourney #running #jogging #training #exercise #wildpoo #diet #instafit #instagym #gym #fitnessmotivation #boxing #boxinglife #parkrun #wellbeing - #fitnesswanker #doyouevenwildpoobro

Just 4 weeks until the #triathlon. Running was hard and really crap today as I have been neglecting it for swimming training. Found a dead snake on my route and also two horses just wandering about! - - - On the plus side, my swimming is now up to 1000metres. - - Thanks to those who have messaged to say that they have missed these vids :) ya loons! - - #triathlontraining #triathlete #running #jogging #training #diet #exercise #fitness #fitspo #instafit #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #boxing #boxinglife #swim #bike #run #swimbikerun #parkrun - - #DoYouEvenRunBro #fitnesswanker

First attempt at my home fitness circuit. I also had some handstand push up bars but the less said about this attempts the better. So, - 5 wide arm #pullups - 10 x 25kg ball throws - 10 x 25kg sand bag squats - 10 x #tyreflips 10 times - - - Need to work on the pull ups but good fun! - - Happy #bankholiday y’all - - #outdoorgym #homeworkout #homecircuit #gym #fitness #workout #instafitness #triathlontraining #triathlon #triathlete #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #boxing #fitfamuk #ukfitfam #homegym - - #DoYouEvenHomeCircuitBro #fitnesswanker

Cleats! Always practice with cleats. They are savage. Fell off in slow motion at a traffic light. A 17mile bike ride in the bag tho and did it with the elite bike team of @shane.snell @nasher.rachel and Greg (not on social media - WTAF????) - 17miles in one hour 13 mins. I was slowing them all down due to cleat hassles but it was ace fun. Great sense of achievement afterwards! 🏃‍♂️🏊‍♂️🚲 - - - #cleats #cycling #bike #triathlon #triathlete #exercise #fitness #fitspo #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #diet #1000caloriea #strongnotskinny #instacit #instafitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #boxing #boxinglife - #trainingteam #DoYouEvenBikeBro #fitnesswanker

Time for a #transformationtuesday. New me is on the left, jokes lols 😆 - Old me is on the left, around 19st and a four man lift. New me on the right around 12st and now part hobbit. - A better diet, less beer, less takeaways and most importantly, a consistent gym and fitness regime. - So many people have helped along the way: James Powell (my first PT) @theyerfitness (current PT) and the man the legend @jpitman_fightfactoryboxing_ @mrp1001 who has been an ever present and always given great guidance and advice (get yourself down to his boxing gym). Can’t wait to get this #triathlon out of the way and get back to The Fight Factory. - Big thanks to the familam for their support too (my wife won’t want tagging in this!). - - - #bodytransformation #fitness #fitspo #fitfamuk #ukfitfam #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #strongnotskinny #instafit #instafitness #boxing #boxinglife #triathlete - #DoYouEvenTransformationBro #fitnesswanker

Taken to Fitness Wankery to the home now and bought a tractor tyre for flipping, as part of a home exercise circuit... more to follow :-) - The #triathlon training continues. Still having a mare with the #swimming and general overtraining that my body clearly isn’t used to. - - - #diet #fitness #workout #outdoorworkout #instafit #fitspo #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #boxing #boxinglife #boxingtraining #triathlete #swim #bike #run #swimbikerun #cardio #strongnotskinny #instafitness #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlifting #tyreflips - - #DoYouEvenTyreFlipBro #fitnessWanker

My first attempt at #cycling! - Didn’t set the world on fire, had to google how to change gears and couldn’t work out how to get both feet in the pedal straps! Apart from that, flying. Did 14.2 miles in 1hr 31m. Pretty slow but it is my first attempt on a road bike, ever and a good benchmark for @theyerfitness and I to work from. - Thanks to @gemmawbb for not killing me when she went past in her monster truck. - - - #triathlon #triathlontraining #cycling #outdoorgym #gym #workout #instafit #instafitness #fitness #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #clicsargent #boxingfitness #boxing #boxinglife #triathlete #strongnotskinny #weightlossjourney - - #bikewanker #bikecurious #fitnesswanker #DoYouEvenBikeBro 🚲🙌☀️🏊‍♂️🏃‍♂️

Merry #Easter you fitness buggers! Another 10k training run in the bag and another crap video 😄😄😄 - Today I talk through how #jesus came to me in the night and told me he really loved #triathlon training and how I should just crack on. Shame I drank so much last night really. - Big thanks this week to @shane.snell @nasher.rachel @td_justaddpetrol @theyerfitness for helping me with my training and running and biking with me in the #gym and @gbequestrian_construction for the general abuse/banter ( #DoYouEvenSwimBro) - The run was quiet today, saw no one other than the dairy farmers. The partially flooded roads helped with the swim elements of the training 🙌😄 - Today’s running gear::: @gymshark running coat, @underarmouruk base layer top, shorts and leggings, @asicseurope trainers and, of course, my fave @xploape bobble hat! - - - #running #parkrun #parkrunuk #triathlete #triathlontraining #fitness #fitspo #fitfam #fitfamuk #ukfitfam #strongnotskinny #diet #instafit #instafitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #swimming #cycling #instagym #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation - - #DoYouEvenTriathlonBro #fitnesswanker

Triathlon training update. Today I tried #hillsprints at a place called #MayHill. Lots of #fitness people I trust and respect (@bennettdsmith @theyerfitness @jpitman_fightfactoryboxing_ ) have recommended them. They are so so tough. My average mile worked out at 19mins for these because it was so muddy, slippery and knackering. Felt good after though. Heart rate got up to 160 when my normal resting heart rate is about 75-80bpm. - Noticed that there is a warning about Alabama Rot (and the danger to dogs) on May Hill, so keep your pooches protected people! - Thanks for all the support and kind words in recent weeks everyone, Fingers crossed the training pays off!!! - - - #triathlontraining #triathlete #fitspo #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #workout #outdoorgym #outsoors #running #sprinting #jogging #waddling #parkrun #instafit #instafitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #strongnotskinny #fitfam #boxing #boxinglife - #fitnesswanker #DoYouEvenHillSprintBro

OMFG! We only share successes on social media right? Well... thisnis the opposite! This is me on my second swimming lesson, having to use a bloody float, like a child. - In less than 12 weeks I am doing an #olympic length #triathlon. I’m f*cked! I mean, proper f*cked, aren’t I!? - Unless my swimming has a Lazarus-esque recovery I very much fear I am going to drown. - #Swimming tips gratefully received! - - big thanks to @theyerfitness for putting up with me and not just losing her sh*t at me 😄💪😄💪 - - - - #swimming #SlipInALength #fitness #triathlete #fitspo #instafit #instagym #running #bike #swim #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #workout #strongnotskinny #fitfam #fitfamuk #ukfitfam #gym #fitnesslife #training - #DoYouEvenSwimBro #fitnesswanker

What an epic #10k that was this morning! So so cold (-2) snow hail and sleet. I was so cold that I think it will take at least three days for Little Andy to come back out again 😄😄😄💪💪 - seriously tough but so motivating to bump into the super sexy @bennettdsmith and also the #running queen @smiley_sunshine_sugarpuff whilst on the way round. They are both very motivational! Onwards and upwards, the #triathlon training continues with @theyerfitness again next week. - Don’t forget, I’m doing all this for Isabel, the 4 year old daughter of a good mate of mine who has #leukemia. You can sponsor me by clicking on the link in my biog (hint). - Ps, big kudos to @gymshark who sent me a running jacket to review and it saved my life in this weather! - - #running #parkrun #boxing #boxinglife #fitness #fitnesslife #fitspo #instafit #instagym #gym #clicsargent #jogging #training #workout #outdoorfitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation @clicsargent

#Triathlon training update >>> - Got a new #PT and a new training program. These #dumbell lifty things are in the program but the 100kg #deadlift into #shrugs are not 😄💪 - Big up to my triathlon trainer PT @theyerfitness who has already deconstructed my swimming technique and taught me a new, better, way to swim. - I still need to buy a bike! Heard they are handy for triathlon’s. Any tips anyone 🚲🏍🚲🏍🚲 - Big run tomorrow planned too - - - - #running #parkrun #lifting #fitspo #instafit #fitness #gym #weights #instagym #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #DoYouEvenTriathloBro #boxing #strongnotskinny #boxinglife #dwfitnessgloucester #fitnesswanker @dwgloucester

Wooooooot!!!! Ladies and gentlemen, a new #10k #PB! Could it be the new @asicseurope GT1000 trainers? Could it be the @scienceinsport gels half way round? Could it have been the new @xploape bobble hat? I think they all helped but it was actually the beautiful @bennettdsmith appearing like an angel when I had 1 mile to go. What a legend! - Shaved 6 whole minutes off my previous 10k best. If there had not been an incident with some farm dogs (I am not a fan) then I would have been quicker! - Had my gait analysis last weekend, hence the new trainers and my ace wife has bought me some running training sessions with running specialist @theyerfitness! All in all, I feel my #triathlon training is on the up! - - - #running #jogging #outdoorfitness #outdoorgym #gym #workout #fitness #fitspo #fitsporation #instafit #instagym #instahealthy #instafitness #fitnesslife #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #parkrun #diet #hillsprints #DoYouEvenRunBro #fitnesswanker

Today I am living the @centerparcsuk dream and doing a cheeky little #5k run. Felt really good and did it in around 30mins! A new PB but not properly tracked. Btw I am 100% buying a bike next week, honest :) Big thanks to @shane.snell and @nasher.rachel for the #triathlon help and advice. Gonna do a #sprinttriathlon in May to have a practice run. So I better get the swimming and bike training started! - Off to play #badminton later today. I don’t consider this an actual sport but the kids like it. - - - #parkrun #mycp #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnesslife #triathlete #diet #running #jogging #dwfitnessgloucester #outdoorfitness #outdoorgym #fitnessjourney #fitspo #fitspiration #instafit #instagym #instahealthy #instafitness
