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.

Yes yes yes, I'm in....oh my god.......what the heck have I done. No it will be awesome......but what about the broom wagon.....train hard and finish..........

The emotions last week have been as big as the hills..... Oh dear in France they are Mountains big ones and Pau to Hautacam is on hell of a one to finish on....

Good job I have a watt bike, my bottom will need to be welded to the seat of it for many hours this winter to be able to achieve this awesome feat.

Not much press on girls doing it, just one super fit girlie on spikes and heels who tells her story.

I have avoided any discussion of the lax week of training. Re named recovery week....

Back to in full effort tomorrow........
