Staffs 70.3 training day 4/112: bike. . I wish this statement was true, however my bike is nothing of the sort. In fact it cost me £50 off Facebook marketplace and it’s pretty basic - but it is pink and gets me around (if you class the 3 times I’ve ridden it getting around). As you all know I’m not a cyclist by any stretch of the imagination so I’m not prepared to fork out lots of cash yet until I’m convinced I really need to. My logic is that if I can get through this training and the course on my pathetic little bike then I can do anything. That and I’m to scared to tell my husband that after spending a few hundred pound on the entry fee (which he doesn’t exactly know about yet) that I need to spend another several hundred pounds on a new road bike (and shoes, fancy padded pants and all the other crap that comes with cycling 😂). . Session wasn’t actually even on my bike as I haven’t yet worked out how to put the training tyre on it and put the bike on the turbo (not confident riding on the road by myself yet). That’s my weekend mission. Today I was on the cycle machine at the gym for 30minutes trying to keep my heart rate in Z2. Aside from the fact that I had a much harder than expected 8 mile run last night, my poor legs were already pretty knackered so this was harder than I thought it would be. I don’t know why I can run for miles but as soon as I have to pedal I have no strength whatsoever wtaf??? Anyway I threw in a 1 mile run at 8:35/mile as soon as I jumped off because I need to practice getting used to cycling runny legs (when you’re legs are like jelly from peddling like a MFkr). This went better than expected and I didn’t embarrass myself by falling off the treadmill. Tomorrow is a rest day thankfully 🙏. . #notacyclist #instacycling #cyclistproblems #bikeporn #bikestagram #ilovemybike #trainhard #run#run #ironman703 #tri#triathlontraining #womensrunningcommunity #mar#mar#marathonlife #halfironman #halfironmantraining #marathon #run #marathontraining #marathonrunner #marathoner #themarathonmum #marathonmum #marathonmom #marathonlife #triathlete #training #swimbikerun #triathlontraining #triathlonlife #triathlongirl #26point2

Første løbetur i en uge. 🙈 Har (på løbefronten) været nedlagt af snot, ondt i halsen og hoste! 🤧😷🤒 Havde planlagt en let 5’er aften tur. Men det føltes godt, så det blev en let 10’er! 👌🏼 Det var først da jeg stoppede igen at jeg var ved at hoste mine lunger op. 😅 #running #löpning #tri #tridk #triatlon #triatlondk #triathlon #triathlondk #triathlete #triathlontraining #triathlonlife #3athlon #3athlete #3athlonlife #3athlontraining #swimbikerun #swimbikerundk #danskeløbere @danskelobere #halfmarathontraining

Yay! Rexie’s back home thanks to the awesome work by Edwin at @talentcycles! There are very few people whom I’d trust with my @ventumracing #VentumOne, and Edwin’s definitely one of them. Thanks also to Jonathan at @acmebicycleco for the recommendation on the @51speedshop bars, and @colinatanner for the recommendation of the @power2max_na #NGeco power meter to match my @praxisworks chainrings and @rotorbike crank (yay 155s!). Can’t wait to ride her soon and try out the new cockpit! . . #teamwyn2019 #wyntm #jointherepublic #triathlon #triathlete #triathlonworld #triathlonlife #tritraining #tri365 #ironman #ironmantraining #swimbikerun #nyctri #runnyc #cyclingnyc #nyccycling #sprint #olympic #worldtriathlonseries #itu #wts
