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.

Hello, I'm back....

So sorry it has been a long time and a lot has happened, my dad passed away and then six months later Fi my training bud, passed away too. So a tad more weight on, been to fat club aka Slimming World and totally unfit.
So in honour of Fi, I am back on the plan.... Our original plan we had was Ironman Fi had dreams of full, I only every had half as I was the less fit friend. Also on our plan was the Etap du Tour, along with some serious iconic mountain stages. So yesterday I enlisted Sean T as my trainer and doing Rockin Body. Should be Insanity but sure I would keel over after 10mins, also very exciting we have cancelled the unused gym membership on have purchased a Watt Bike, it arrives Thursday can't wait. Plan is Watt Bike weight management programme and Rockin for one month, then insanity.... Well fingers crossed. TTFN.
