I love cycling but I'm finding it quite hard. I don't feel confident going out on my own and am really scared of falling off at speed. I've only fallen off once so far and that was onto grass. But I know I need to TTFU and just get out there.
She needed a quick hose down when we got back and I have to apply some dry lube to her bits apparently (ooer!) but I'm learning about bike maintenance. And other stuff, like liberally applying Vaseline ;-)
Hello! Thanks for checking out my new blog. I'm an old hand at blogging, been doing it for a few years now but I wanted to start afresh with one just about my attempts to complete a triathlon this year.
2010 was a life changing year for me. A lot of it was pretty horrible but I survived. I came out the other end stronger, happier and healthier than I've ever been in my life. I decided I would like to do something meaningful to me so I challenged myself to train and compete in a triathlon. All was going well until I got whooping cough.
I'm almost back to full health, I'm training again and I will take part in a triathlon this year. Running and cycling are going well although I'm not back swimming properly yet. But I'm nearly there. Whenever I feel tired, sore or just plain sorry for myself I think of Jane Tomlinson and all that she achieved. She is my inspiration.
Give me some time to play about with the blog but do come back and visit :-)
