Middle aged woman remembers she used to be fit, but 22 years on, 2 kids and a career it may be a vivid memory in the mind but a distant one in the body!

There is no point posting Daily, not many will read this anyway, but every couple of weeks would seem sufficient enough.

Boredom - it is when you have a plan that requires your concentration for 5 mins at this speed, 2 mins at that speed, 5 mins at that HR zone, Sprint, brisk walk, race speed cool down, well you don't have time to get bored.

I have 4 days very off colour, possibly ate something not great, and that meant three of my first weeks sessions had to be moved. a bigger man would have fought through it I am sure but I am but a novice and the pressure to do each session is weighted by the fact its costs money, the fact someone will be checking up on me a few hours later (Canada vs UK) and the numbers game and the social involvement with friends. Well it was their fault I am doing this anyway!

So reflecting on y races so far.
Sept 2013 - first ever Dorney Lakes Triathlon. 1:58:59 for a Sprint distance - flat.
May 2014 - Hyde Park, 1:16:48 for a Super Sprint - flat
June 2014 - Blenheim, 2:16:49 for a Sprint - hilly

So with 12 months under my belt I am aiming to be faster and fitter for Sept 28th at Dorney Lakes to do y first comparison. Before that I have a Super Sprint flat on the 13th July, and a Sprint flat-ish but bad roads (London) in August.

I also would like to loose a little weight, not lose my curves- I don't want to be as stick but it would help with the run if I carried less weight so I set myself a realistic goal of 5 Kg to lose. not fussed if it takes a while, I can understand the body needs to catch up with the new regime, but I had seen no change from my 81Kg for 5 months which was a little disheartening. However fingers crossed it moved a bit a few weeks ago to 80 Kg and then this week I got up and clocked in at 78.8 so maybe we are seeing a change.

I will check back in a couple of weeks and see how this is taking shape.
