Who is Sue?
Thought I'd better change this part after my 2003 post has changed a bit, as has TTalk. I was one of the first members and it served a great motivational site but I think many of us have moved on.
I now dont do anything competitive having been there and done that in tir's, running and bike. Now its about leisure riding with friends and keeping fit and therapy.
After loosing my partner , Alan, in 2015, after meeting on here and being together 10 years I found biking was a great form of therapy and it still is today.
I have lots of great cycling friends and belong a great club.
Re started running this year after a knee niggle. Found if I keep to no more then 5k then its fine so once a week or 10 days is good. I also walk a bit.
Keeping active = able to eat without putting the weight on Very Happy

Well I did it, got out to swim for 8pm.
So now I'm only aiming for once a week. Some days are busier, heck there were 5 in my lane one evening, others I have a lane to myself. Just my usual plod along. Try to do around a mile front crawl then some breaststroke and back crawl for different arm exercise. Main problem is counting, how on earth can you go wrong with sets of 10 Shocked

Quite a bit of walking with poor weather. Dont get me wrong Im not a fair weather riding but frost, wind and heavy rain makes me leave to bike at home. Even when out the number of times its muttered " the weather man didnt say this" as we get caught in sleet, snow, downpours.
Even did some hill reps the other day to get me ready for the club trip to Spain and those long long drags
--which I love by the way, unlike short sharp slopes that I hate Mad

Happy "moving" folks, in whatever way, its better then the couch potatoes Very Happy

Hey Sue - great to see you blogging and sounds like you're having a good time.
Much like yourself, I've stopped racing but like keeping fit so set myself challenges as well - 2017 was my best ever cycling year at 5200 miles, so you've bettered that by some distance, nice work Smile
Almost back to being an athlete in 2016 Shocked
