5 weeks and first race next weekend

Back to a “normal” week this week, after the excitement of going away. I did my first Time Trial this week on a windy Wednesday, was slower than last year, but quite pleased with my pacing! Screen Shot 2013-05-10 at 19.25.07

Had a long ride on Friday to avoid the rain on Thursday, and took a few pictures before going up Pendine Hill, always hard, the hill not taking pics 😉

It looked a bit sunnier than this when I was there!! Nice to see the bluebells out though. Looking forward to The slateman triathlon next weekend in Llanberis, I’m hoping the lake will have warmed up a little bit by then! Lyn Padarn brrr..

What a week! (6 weeks to go)

Swimming

Had a great week last week, my first open water swim at Amroth beach, I got a very cold face at first but then swam down the beach and back against the current, as you can see from Garmin!!Image

Mountain Biking

At the weekend my mum looked after the boys and we did the Dyfi Enduro  in Machynlleth, we drove up on Saturday and camped Saturday and Sunday night. We did the event last year, but didn’t finish (injured husband). This year he trained and we finished, had a great time there’s a lovely atmosphere at the event and its nice not to be competitive for a change!!

Why I am starting my blog

I am already a long way through my training for half ironman, but want to raise some sponsorship for a trust, that has touched me. I don’t usually get sponsored to do events because, I think, well I was going to do it anyway. But I really want to support The Spirit of Sulien Trust. I met Sulien at his little sisters birthday party in January this year. He tragically died in March and his family have set up a trust

  • To fund the activities that Sulien enjoyed.
  • To develop and support local services for encouraging boys to develop their nurturing side.
  • To fund local services that support families who have experienced the loss of a child.

I really hope that you can find some time to look at their website and feel inspired to donate some money to this very positive trust.
