It is instinctive for most people to expect others to live up (or down) to their own standards. At least, I think it is… It’s the old adage of treating others how you would like to be treated yourself. I have no idea if that’s still a common thing to teach children, although I do… Continue reading Mind the Gap!
My last post briefly touched on the new Hydro classes being offered by Virgin Active. I've spoken to a lot of people who have been curious about the classes so thought I'd expand on it a little. Firstly, this is NOT "Aquafit". Any thoughts you may have about this being water aerobics are wrong... very,… Continue reading More about Hydro
Last weekend saw me complete my second ever triathlon. And man alive it was tough. I’d entered it off the back of the high at completing the Mayday Tri and with high expectations of training hard through the summer and improve my performance – if not my times, then certainly the pain experienced actually participating….… Continue reading Tri, Tri and (maybe) Tri again…

The good news though, is that the first attempt at a structured training session saw me knock around 3 mins off my tri distance swim time.... I do… Continue reading Just a quickie!

Training this weekend was swim & bike. I'm trying not to freak out about the fact that this means I… Continue reading Bubble, bubble, streeeetch
With Christmas well and truly behind us and the (marginally) lighter evenings creeping in, I have been ramping up the training. Now, before you go expecting amazing things, this is ramping up a la Liz! But before I go there…. Lets explore this… This week I had the always exciting arrival of a box from… Continue reading Stepping it up a gear

Gutted doesn't even cover it as I'd had a brilliant run, got home buzzing that I should be on for a good race at Stubbington… Continue reading And so it begins…
Laid in bed, unable to get to sleep after a couple of hours attempting to settle the baby, I got to thinking about the firsts that made up Sunday.
