Progress at last!
by sarahleonard Jun 15th 2012
Well I must say all this core training has been a revelation. Not only am I enjoying it, but I am seeing some progress at lastl! Nothing I can see visually but I can defiantly say I am getting stronger. Free weights, TRX and some balance work, tick! My only problem now is that there is only one TRX in our gym and although most people seem to ignore it, if you get another keen bean like me then there can be some awkward stand offs. Will have to branch out and include some more swiss ball action.
Tried to go for my first run but I'm still too fatigued for this it seems. Made up for it with some stretching and rolling out tight muscles which made me feel great.

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!
