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,

Battle of the Cold

Well I feel lousy. I am meant to of had a 2 1/2 hour turbo tonight. But I think the cold has a grip on me and I feel so lethargic. Where has all my energy gone. Typical!!! It was not that bad a set aswell

7x(1 min at L7, 4 mins at L1)
4x(8 mins at L4, 2 mins at L2)
7x(1 min at L7, 4 mins at L1)

I did try, cannot fault me for that. Eventually after managing all the 7x1min @ L7 and 2x8mins @L4. Yvonne looked at me and said stop, I concurred as I was struggling to get a breath, had that wonderful coldy mucus stuck in my throat. mmmmmm the taste was errr dreadful. Cooled down and that was me.

Lovely warm shower stayed up for another 40mins then went to bed. The battle with the cold and I lost.
