In the words of Example... "And the love kickstarts again...."

Its now the end of the triathlon season and while its been a non existent triathlon season for me, with my plethora of injuries, ailments and general excuses, its time to draw a line, settle into the winter training and the love kickstarts again....

Still have a few goals to get out of the way before the end of the year. That sub 1:45 half marathon is still calling me in particular!

Winter goals:

1) Get my lazy ass back in the pool four times a week...
2) Cycle through the winter and stop bailing out when its cold!...plus need to use my new Layzene Power Drive XL lights ;)
3) Work on running speed over shorter distances

But before we get too bogged down in Winter training, a round-up of the year so far....
The year started with a real injection of enthusiasm and a great self imposed run training regime as well as some great swim coaching from endurance360coaching...you must remember the swim analysis photos...shocking! Here they are again...lol!
In the words of Example...
February was when the run training paid off and I knocked 8 mins of my (admittedly poor) half marathon PB...remember the bin bag photo? Like the football in Castaway, that bin-bag became my friend that day - ffrrreeeeezing day!!
In the words of Example...
March was cycle training and headed to Italy to hit the hills of San Marino...
All was going well....
In the words of Example...
April came and with it came my withdrawal from Majorca 70.3 and first bout of breast surgery :(
May saw me travel out to Majorca in any case and soaking up the atmosphere in the Ironman Majorca 70.3 as a spectator! Got a good amount of cycling in, so not a total waste...
In the words of Example...
June...write off!... more surgery!
July saw me back in the water, back on the bike and running again...albeit slowly... More exercising than training!
August and back to Swanage for another year... Won the relay event and got 'silverwear' to boot! :)))
In the words of Example...
September means BTS Club Champs time...and having had a shocking swim, Heather stormed the bike and thanks to Simons sub 17 minute 5km, we got a second place...officially, if you check the website...stewards inquiry though!! ;)
In the words of Example...
