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…
** Spoiler Alert** If you're bored of hearing how rubbish this lurgy is.... look away now! Yes, it is still lingering on... and aside from actually having the energy to get dressed and go to work to cough and sneeze instead of languishing on the sofa, I'm actually not feeling much better! I don't recall ever having… Continue reading Another week bites the dust….
This week the tri training update couldn't be shorter! The girls have over shared their germs and, other than a swim session, training has been non existent! 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!
I'm going to restrict myself to one blog post per week on Tri training for now. I don't want to bore people and I'm sure there'll be more to say as the event gets closer. 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
I’ve never written a book review before so was very excited to be asked to do so for Tricurious by Laura Fountain and Katie King. It took me a little while to realise that I had already been following Laura’s blog (Lazy Girl Running) for a while! Unlike other books of its genre, I found… Continue reading Are you Tricurious?
A vacancy has arisen. I am currently seeking a mentor! A friend recommended that I find myself a mentor to help me achieve my goals (she's nuts - read her blog here as proof!). Aaaanyhoooo, apparently a mentor helps you achieve, doesn't accept excuses, supports & offers advice... And doesn't necessarily need to know they… Continue reading Desperately Seeking…
After a fab running streak in December, a short break and then a fabulous training run just over a week ago, I was struck down with my annual (ish) cold/cough. 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. It seems I’m not too old (yet) to be attempting a few firsts… although it’s become blindingly obvious it’s going to be flipping hard work! First… Continue reading Human Soup, Hills and Mud!
