Project training for nothing in particular is back on!
by sarahleonard May 31st 2012
Feeling more or less fully recovered from my nasty shingles episode now. I've started a new strength training regime mainly based around core, back and stability exercises and using the TRX. When I say started, I mean I've done it once, but making my intentions public apparently makes you more likely to stick to your guns. So lets see what happens my core could definitely do with an extra boost! Although I can hold a plank for a long time, throw in some balance work and I'm hopeless.
Still it's good to have identified an area to improve. Seems like a great time incorporate this into my regime and I'm wondering how long it will take until I see any improvements, any ideas? I do hope my patience holds out for long enough to see a difference.
No events in my diary this year but thinking that once I'm back in training just turning up and entering a few races on the day could be fun. There's some great mid week aquathlons and small scale half marathons which have my name on them metaphorically if not literally!
Tea Shop Rides Rule OK!

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!
