I have reached the point of no return!

It’s been a little while since my last post but training is going well – if you don’t count swimming training!  That part of my triathlon leg is still freaking me out a little, but I’m sure all will be good on the day!

I’m now able to run more than before, and cycling isn’t killing me as much as it used to!

My wonderful hubby is (finally) up to the practical part of his personal training course, and in the next week or so he has to do a video of him training me.  I hope he’s gentle! haha!  But it will be good to get some more strength training in there.  I really don’t think I’m doing enough right now, although I am starting to notice subtle fat-loss-related changes, which is good.

Today I am going to be securing my place as a competitor in my first triathlon too!  So this is the point of no return!  What’s even better about this is that I’ve inspired a colleague to also enter.  Competing in a triathlon has always been something she eventually wanted to do, and when I told her what I was up to, and after our first running session (intervals), she was hooked!

I will send her proof of my entry today, then she’s got to do the same for me – we’re keeping each other accountable which is great.

Actually, having somebody else to train with is a great way to keep yourself accountable because you know they’re counting on you to turn up for a training session, so if you can, see if you can find a “workout partner” to give your motivation a boost!
