I've stumbled across this tonight and decided to give it a go again. I'm back training reasonably consistently, have helped form a club (Fleetwood Tri Club) and completed Ironman UK this summer.

My aims for next year are to get fast, I've had a bike fit (which means I'm considering a new bike Very Happy ) and have hopefully got myself into a routine to train well - At least until work gets in the way... I managed 5.07 for the Cotswolds113 last yeah and desperately want to get close to 4.30 next year. That is my long term goal for the year, I'm hoping to blog my exploits I trying to get there on here over the coming months ( at least a bit more regularly than the 1 post in 6 years)!
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor timid souls who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

Ha, 7 years & we haven't gone away. Will enjoy reading.
About me...

I've lurked on tritalk since 2003, and started posting in 2005. I was knocked off my motorbike in Feb 2005 which resulted in me needing a shoulder reconstruction. 12 Months of re-hab left me overweight and unable to play rugby anymore. I started training for the cheshire novice tri, lost a stone and a half in the process and am got hooked! Work and my reinvolvement in pro rugby got in the way for a few years, but I started training casually again in 2011 and completed the Fleetwood Tri shortly after moving up here. I learned to swim (thanks crazygirl!!) and attempted the Cotswolds 113 in June 2012 and have continued training since. I managed to knock 40 mins of Cotswold time in 2013 and am hoping for a similar reduction in 2014 with an aim of 4 hours 30. In August I completed IMUK in just over 13 hours, despite training issues with work. Hoping to revisit Ironman in 2015...
