the power of others
by sarahleonardJan 26th 2015
Goodness, it's been a while. I've been very quiet and I apologise. I'm sure that you've all been thinking 'I wonder what happened to that lady who had the baby, I wonder how her training is going?'.
Well it's now 'going' again. I'm no Paula Radcliffe but, I am making my return to training if not to racing and I'm feeling good.
After a rather long break while I dealt with sleepless nights and endless illnesses I have found some kind routine and motivation thanks to the power of 'others'. Yes, other people in the same position as me, with similar goals.
Did I feeling sluggish at the start. Yes! Were my feet inexplicably bigger and bursting out of my shoes? Yes? Not to mention other parts of my body?? Errrr Yes!
Thank you other people, if it weren't for you I wouldn't be pushing back my 9 pm bedtime to pound the streets in the wind and the rain.

At school I started as a runner and after a few years out I decided to revisit it again as an adult. To my horror I'd become totally unfit so I set myself the goal of a half marathon...I got there, but I'm still chasing my sub 1hr 45 target!
Later I thought cycling looked quite fun so, I bought a bike and only then realised that I had to cycle on the road (second horror moment), seven years later and I don't recognise myself.
After a year at BADtri (just you know being sociable) I finally decided to learn to swim (front crawl). I've even been known to attend the early morning swim sessions (but only if a post swim coffee and croissant are on offer!).
So there we have it Run, Bike, Swim or something like that! Follow me for updates on my life, my training and my adventures!
