So as you may have read in my previous post it’s tri training time again. I tend to do this. I do training for an event, do the event, promise myself I’ll keep up the training & never do. So when it comes to a few months before a planned event the training from scratch starts again. I really need to learn a lesson!! So … Continue reading Tri’ing in the rain, just Tri’ing in the rain!! 🎶
Frankie did her first triathlon at the North West Triathlon in Cheshire in 2015. I did the same one in 2016. 2017 is about Tri’ing with our friends & getting some more newbies into the sport. My friend Hayley over at Getoutandseestuff has had a hard time over the last few years with a knee injury. Going from running 10km’s & hoping to step up … Continue reading Tri with a little help from our friends
I’ve not blogged in a while & that’s pretty much because I’ve not done too much. So I’m using the start of the year to try to change things. If you’re anything like me I always start out the year with good intentions of loosing weight & getting fitter & it’s always a rollercoaster of a ride through the 12months, some months being super good … Continue reading New year new me….again!
For the past few years I’ve been saying I’m going to go to the Royal Cheshire Show & this year we finally made it! My brother-in-law bought some land over the last few years & has gradually built up a stock of sheep, pigs & chickens & we spent a few days at the farm during lambing season this year, helping some of the sheep … Continue reading Flat caps at the ready!
We’ve done a few road races over the last few years but have always wanted to do some kind of obstacle course one. So taking advantage of Frankie’s #30things we signed up for Gung-Ho, an inflatable obstacle course of 5km running around Heaton Park. The weather wasn’t the greatest, typical April showers & patches of sun. The previous days had been quite wet so the … Continue reading Gung-Ho or Gung-No!
Sunday 10th April 2016…..Manchester Marathon day! The day we had been training for for the last 3.5months. After carb loading for the last 3 days we got up early & had our breakfast carb loading bagels & jam, packed our bags with all essentials & headed off on the tram over to Trafford to find the start. The morning was cold, foggy & a little … Continue reading Manchester Marathon 2016!
Tomorrow is D-Day. Finally Manchester Marathon day has arrived. The day that we have stupidly agreed to run 26.2miles in raising money for Guide Dogs. So to enable us to hopefully complete the marathon without ‘hitting the wall’ too early we have been following a carb loading plan since Thursday. The whole concept of carb loading is that in general your body can only store … Continue reading #EatPastaRunFaster
