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.

Watt Bike Arrival

Hannah1234by Hannah1234Oct 20th 2013
Thursday the Watt Bike arrived woo hoo..... Alex had it all set up and ready for bike fit when I got home, he has been reading the manual for the last week very sad...
Still been faithful to Sean T and Rockin Body and still to plan, the moves are getting easier now, well I am remembering them.
So bike fit done it was time for the 3 min test on the Watt Bike, Alex has been feeling queasy after his, he's more of an endurance boy than fast twitch. I was not feeling the best but thought I would give it a go. Gutted to be one away from level 2, level 1 is described as no fitness level ME! I got over it and have opted for the Sportive Plan Level 2 and yes been on track for week one. Saddle needs changing but other than that going well on the plan you do the three min test in week 3 so hoping to show a significant improvement.
Looking online for Sportive in Yorkshire in New Year as a goal too. Away for a couple of nights with work now but have a cunning plan to keep on track.....TTFN
