So, a bit about myself, entering the half century next year and have decided (possibly a mid life crisis according to the other half) that I will be the most glam and fittest I have ever been. On my bucket list is to complete the Lanzarote Ironman Triathlon!!
6 weeks ago I weighed in at 13st 6lbs and today weighed in at 12st 6lbs. I joined a gym and go at least 4 times per week for core strengthening and conditioning, plus 2-3 spin classes a week and swimming once a week.
I have lost inches, and have more energy than I know what to do with I knew, from previous experience, that running is harmful to my health UNLESS I lose weight and get my form right, hence my strength and conditioning efforts.
My treat for losing a stone?? To start the couch to 5k programme. So this morning completed my first run and actually for the first time in my life, felt like a runner - no collapsing over my chest and hips or running heel first! I was light on the balls of my feet and kept my body straight and upright - I struggled to breathe, but that's a different story.
Hopefully by following the programme, I will be able to graduate and successfully completed my 3 mini sprint triathlons that I have entered next year!!
Is anyone else out there planning on doing a Triathlon or indeed has completed a Triathlon?
