UPDATE! 25 Oct 2010

It is with great sadness that I write this update. On the 25th October 2010 my little sister sadly passed away at the age of 31. She had bravely battled MND for 11 years. She had never given up and had achieved to much even after developing MND, winning the Open University award for achievement to gaining a degree. She will be greatly missed and will for ever be in our thoughts. Love you sis :D

Well where to start, it was all originally done as I was carry to much weight and wanted to loose it. Which I am sure it most peoples story begins, however after loosing the weight I actually started to enjoy running outside. Joined some forums (BCTTT & Runners World), there inspiration and helpfullness has helped me a lot. Now I am also swimming and commuting a couple of times a week to work on my bike! Now since 2011 I accomplished more than I thought I ever would or could. From 5k runs to an Ironman in 2014 and The Outlaw in 2015. In 2016 I am going down a different route, I will be trying Ultra's as you can see from my events I have already entered 3 so far. Now I thought wait a minute I need to have one more motivation and that people is my sister Emma. Since the age of 20 she was very unfortunate and developed MND (Motor Neurone Disease), she is now 31 years of Age. Her health has deteriatated over the years and we nearly lost her last year. My mum had to give up her work and become a full time carer for my sister and my dad takes over the duties when he comes home from work. All the races I do will be in aid of my sister and all money raised will be donated to MND to help raise awareness and research in the disease. Thanks for all your help and enjoy my training blog,

Armbands...........Noodle.......anything to keep me afloat

Woah not sure what was going on today. Felt fine before swim, then................

 After the 200m warm up I felt as though I had no energy in the arms, also that I was out of breath much quicker. Got to the main set managed the 5x100m. Did the rest the wrong way round. Did the 400m first which took me about 8:12. Then proceeded to do the 600m lost count so made that my 200m. Then proceeded to do the 600m after I did 400m I was spent had nothing left to give in the arms and breathing nearly every stroke. Cooled down and wrote it off as a armband day. Going to take a gel about 10mins before going to the pool to see if that makes a difference!

Later on that evening it was time for a turbo session. 1hr30mins (even though I only did 1hr20mins) This was easy enough. Legs felt fine afterwards.
