Year Of The Awesome
Year Of The Awesome
Hello All, I original set up this blog help inspire me to get back into Triathlon. I was never the sporty type up until 2006, when I got the bug! Initially it was a new years resolution and I booked derby tri for the September. I had weight to loose and fitness to build. I attended a women's introduction to tri day at Leeds to get me started and even met Fi my training bud (In the middle with Alex my partner) For years we did loads of events, achieving Olympic distance at Ripon Tri, it was awesome. We hoped of half one day, dreamed of Ironman and to ride the big Cols in France. Then work life got in the way or a least I allowed it too. I have piled on the pounds, am out of shape, well I don't fit in my wetsuit anymore and that's bad. Life has been rocky, Fi got poorly a number of times, but each time she came back fighting. Then my Dad got ill, I'm a big Daddies Girl. As you do you stay strong, my Dad passed away in September 2011 and Fi, the fighter trained right up until two weeks before she was rudely taken in April 2012. I am now back and ready to training hard, I want this to be the year of the Awesome, by training hard and achieving my goals I know my Dad would be proud and Fi would be with me in spirit, enjoying every minute.

Day five Insanity

Hannah1234by Hannah1234May 19th 2011
Pure cardio today, it was hard today but I managed a few of the press ups that's not bad for 5 days training. Feeling great this evening, and inspired but the food we have been able to eat. Alex was happy today with the cardio, he sulks with stretch workouts, and he grumbles that everyone else is not normal to be able to touch their toes...... Got to be up early tommorow and with the thought of plyo to do it my be a difficult, better put the alarm clock away from the bed to get me up, yes that is what it takes. For a non AM person I have done well to get in 4/5 of the early ones in. Off now gonna set up kit and be really organised. Did not go for lake swim today with my friend as wet suit still did not fit, more reasons to stick with insanity.
