Tea Shop Rides Rule OK!


sarahleonardby sarahleonardAug 28th 2009
It's a bit late to be starting my blog now in hindsight......but thought it would be a nice place to store some of my photos. It's now five weeks until my first Ironman and I've completed most of the hard work (so I'm told).

I've had the help of a coach, physio, osteopath, podiatrist, sports masseurs, fellow triathlete friends, supportive parents and one very patient boyfriend!

I've also bought a new bike (with all essential accessories) wetsuit, turbo trainer, winter training kit, summer training kit, heart rate monitoring stuff, various nutritional aids, some lung improving equipment and entered necessary pre race practice events (yikes, may as well re-mortgage my house).

I've changed my run style, bike set up and swim stroke!!.... Is there anything left of me????

Endured "just a few" hours of riding (even in the bitter cold), put my poor suffering body through gruelling strength training sessions, and exposed my poor boyfriend to 5.50am grumps before morning swim sessions (not my best side).

I'm hoping to raise money for charity, but even more than that I'm hoping to finish in one piece and still be able to convince myself in years to come that "I enjoyed it" at least a small bit.
