Sunday 15th March 2020 The coronavirus or Covid-19 has swept the world into a pandemic frenzy. This may be my last race, or even my last post, who knows?! The governments seem to be cancelling everything at the moment, but not the New Plymouth Mountain Bikers Club Champs! We’ve put too much work into this… Continue reading NPMTB Club Championships
I’ve been a bit quiet on the old blog the last few months, opting out of my weekly updates. Partly due to the fact that I was just getting on with my training and didn't feel the need to write about anything as I was just getting it done. Then, partly because I’ve been pretty… Continue reading It Was Going So Well…
Saturday 25th January 2020 The Mitre 10 Mega MTB race is part of the Taranaki Cycle Challenge, including the BDO Around the Mountain road race. It was a last minute/peer pressured decision to enter the 50km MTB race. I thought I’d be able to handle it and do alright, but XC (cross country) racing is… Continue reading Mitre 10 Mega MTB Race
So I took a bit of a break. I deleted my training plan, cancelled my races and just did what I wanted, which was ride my bike. As you may have gathered from my last post, (I Can’t) things were getting to me a bit. I needed to take a step back and remember why I… Continue reading Go ride your f**king bike!
I can’t do it.I can’t swim in the lake.I can’t bike on the road.I can’t run those hills.I can’t do this race on Saturday.I just can’t. So this week was full of negativity and gloom and doom. I have a bit of a knee injury and have drastically reduced my running. I’m pretty sure its… Continue reading Week 19: I Can’t
This week has been kinda boring training wise. I’ve actually managed to just get on with it. Limited dramas, acting like a normal person, and training hard for Rotorua Suffer in just 2 weeks time!! Plus I’ve been able to add in some extra bike sessions at the forest to get acquainted with my new… Continue reading Week 17: Snooze Fest!
After the whole peanut butter drama of Sunday, I still wasn't feeling great on Monday, but managed to at least show up for my training, even if I didn't quite have it in me to complete the swim set. But its better than crying at home, which has often happened on a Monday when I… Continue reading Week 16: Period Power
This week kicked off to a great start and by Friday I was feeling like a strong, confident woman who could do anything. Then I woke up Saturday and my internal channel had changed to ‘You can’t do this’. WHY?? I want to see if I can figure out what triggers this change in mindset… Continue reading Week 15: Hero to Hormonal
This week has felt pretty stressful. I’ve lost my routine, momentum and motivation. Having my first weekend off since July has really thrown me out of routine, add to that some sick cows and Mother coming to visit, its been a hectic week! In amongst all that chaos there has been some excitement; I was… Continue reading Week 14: Loosing It
This last week has been a bit of a whirlwind and I can’t believe I’ve had to get up extra early on Tuesday morning to try and get this done as I totally lost track of the days. I feel that so much has happened this week, but also so much hasn’t. There are lots… Continue reading Week 9: Making Connections
