This threw my life into turmoil as not only were we in a relationship for ~3 years, but we were also business partners and had been planning to travel together in 2017. It also attacked me on a personal level; I never saw it coming, and to this day, still don't know what caused her sudden change in heart.

With that aside, I have never been so happy with my choice in friends, decisions and outlook on life.
Over the past 5 months, I have expanded my social base 10x. The time I have spent with friends and extended family around the country has been amazing and I never realised life could be like this.
Recently, I decided an Ironman would be a good idea. I know for a fact that an Ironman would place me in a world of hurt. However, the person I am, seeks that level of complete physical and mental exertion.
Swimming 3.8km, cycling 180km followed by a 42km run is not a target I expect to be able to complete (in a decent time) in the near future. However, I know it is achievable. My main focus at the moment is to get my health back up to point and keep it there as it has definitely held me back.
