Lieann's Triathlon journey
Welcome to my journey.

Day 1

Lieannby LieannAug 9th 2012
Hello everyone
This is my first day to this site and the start of my journey.

I am 32 years old, 2.5 stones over weight and in need of some direction. So I thought right lets get a plan together and aim towards a goal.........so here I am.

My plan is to enter the Humanrace triathlon in July next year to do the Womens only Shockwave Challenge Triathlon. I have not done a triathlon before so I am new to this style of training. I plan on building my fitness up to a good level to enable me to train correctly for the event. I am not an exercise novice so I have a good base knowledge, just need a little motivation here and there..

I am excited about starting my journey and blogging my progress, and I would welcome any help of advice I can get.

Let the fun begin!! :)

Thanks Sam. I am based in Milton Keynes so a little too far for a regular swim, but would love to join in if I am every down that way. There is a lake near me were I can get some open swimming done to get some practice in. Thanks for the motivation, I am really excited about the journey.
