No kebabs in Middle Earth have a lot less meat and a lot more salad in them
OP I hope we haven't scared you off or offended you or anything like that - the last tri I did there was a lady athlete who was easily a size 22-24 I had complete respect for her - when I was squishing myself into a size 18 and desperately trying to ignore the fact that I really should've been wearing size 20 I could not have done a sprint tri. I didn't believe I could do that sort of thing - and yet here I am a wee bit smaller than I was and I love doing triathlons and I have met the best people in doing them. So dont let the clothing thing put you off - seriously check out the men's kit - in tri I dont think there is that much difference between the shorts the pad is so thin anyway. Get a decent sports bra and you're away! Invest in the kit anyway - I love buying new kit when I'm allowed to husband should own shares in Wiggle!
PS East Leake Tri in September is a lot of fun if you are keen for another tri close to home - I'll be there!
Very slow 1.20 z2 run this morning then a wee visit to Hot Physio who with his wicked wee hands made me hold my breath a bit cause it hurt! I mentioned to him my hip was stiff and quite tight this morning and that my groin had been behaving itself on the run - so he spent 20 odd minutes inflicting pain on the hip/glutes and then stuck me with needles! Apparently I needed a bit of manipulation around the pelvis - so we will see how I run on Friday
Hopefully if the LB uni pool is open after work I can have a wee swimble as well - sunshine is motivating apparently...so is the realisation that the Outlaw Half is 39 days away and I have yet to have an OW swim!
Hello all! I am back in the land of the shire lovely weekend in Oxford and a wee visit to Blenheim Palace - looks like a nice place to have a tri!! Got a pirate hoodie, new gloves and bars for the bike for my bday - quite excited to get out there and give them a go!
Lots of good racing and training going on - well done peeps!
