The Off-Season: Sleep Goes MIA. Part II.

After my slightly dramatic last blog post (The Off-Season: Sleep Goes MIA Part I), I thought I would continue the trend… If you type into Google ‘Can you die from…’ fourth from the top is ‘…a lack of sleep’.  I just need to point out that I hadn’t googled this myself, I heard it on oneContinue reading “The Off-Season: Sleep Goes MIA. Part II.”

The Off-Season. Sleep goes MIA. Pt I.

So here I am, gone 01:00 in the morning on a school night, writing a blog about my inability to sleep.  I could take the view that lying there with my eyes shut, at least trying to sleep is better than giving into the blue light of my Mac.  However, if I did that I wouldContinue reading “The Off-Season. Sleep goes MIA. Pt I.”

Tri Lingo.

So you all know what I am chatting about so I have provided you with my interpretation of the triathlete terminology. N.B. This is where my maturity level regresses. Fartlek Training:  Phhaaaaa. FARTlek. FART.  Anyway.  It means speed play and is a Swedish term. So during a run I will add random fast efforts andContinue reading “Tri Lingo.”

Ignorance is Bliss.

My Triathlon Life Story – cont.  From 1st January 2019, I was taken under Sam’s wing. I have gone into triathlon wanting to see what I can achieve in 12 months and with the intention of giving that 12 months 110% commitment.  If at the end of 12 months I had achieved nothing, I wouldContinue reading “Ignorance is Bliss.”

A Christmas Cracker.

Believe it or not, I did take on board that, to an extent, my socialising had to be reduced.  Not only due to time restrictions but going out is expensive, as is triathlon. I couldn’t do both. Although I still have the occasional relapse.  I maxed out on being a wild child ahead of JanuaryContinue reading “A Christmas Cracker.”

Back to the Party Starter.

This week I have been battling that absolutely rank cold/flu that has been doing the rounds.  Whoever contaminated me, you are off my Christmas card list. I have been on enforced rest (courtesy of Sam (coach)) for the past four days and IT IS SO BORING. What does everyone do in their spare time?! PleaseContinue reading “Back to the Party Starter.”

You’ve Been Framed.

After my beginners luck at the Shrewsbury Sprint Triathlon, I carried on with my usual routine; occasionally venturing to the gym before work, working, eating, drinking, socialising, going away for weekends and sleeping.  Shortly after my apparent success at the event, Sam Mountain (coach for Amphibian Triathlon Coaching and SYTri) approached me at Rowton CastleContinue reading “You’ve Been Framed.”

Shrewsbury Triathlon 2018.

As I have explained previously, the idea of failure gives me the heebegebies.  Failing at something is different for everyone and I appreciate that. We all have different hopes, dreams and aspirations.  Some people see success as making it over the finish line, seeing how many tequilas you can sink in a night (often me),Continue reading “Shrewsbury Triathlon 2018.”

Riding Solo (ft. Jason Derulo.)

So, in June 2018, I bucked my ideas up and launched myself into becoming a #strongindependantwoman. With the help of some very valued friends, I escaped the (beautiful) depths of Wales and moved to Shrewsbury as a lone free ranger.  Please refer to the above picture of me embracing my new independence. Getting naked andContinue reading “Riding Solo (ft. Jason Derulo.)”

Testing, testing…

OH HI THERE! WELCOME TO MY PUBLIC DIARY; AN ACCESS ALL AREAS ACCOUNT OF ME TRYING TO BALANCE TRIATHLON TRAINING WITH THAT THING CALLED WORK, SOCIALISING, DATING AND SLEEPING. Life is sometimes hectic, please bear with. x Exploring the world of social media, blogging and being a ‘triathlete’ – whatever any of those terms mean.Continue reading “Testing, testing…”
