Last week’s stomach cramps seem to have disappeared, hooray, but I felt like this week has been a whole other level of struggle. I have felt emotional, overwhelmed and stressed, but as per my goals last week I have upped my veggies, tried to get more sleep and began practising mindfulness. It all started on… Continue reading Week 12: Overwhelmed
After completing another decent week of training, I’ve been averaging 7-8 hrs the last four weeks, I am feeling sore but strong. Is this what its meant to feel like when things are finally coming together? My swim times are down, my bike FTP is up and my running, er… still needs work. But I… Continue reading Week 11: Listen to Yourself
So apparently I had written last weeks post but not actually published it, meaning this week you are treated to a double dose of my training updates. This week has been a pretty solid week of training, with 6 days in a row of glorious green boxes on Today’s Plan. But what you cant see… Continue reading Week 10: Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

But I guess an orange box for an attempted workout is better than a red box for a missed workout. After all, life is not pass or… Continue reading Base Build: Week 4/6
Week 3: Green Streak This week has been going SO much better than last week and it all changed on Sunday when I got my period and felt like a new woman. I felt stronger and more confident and, as a result, have been absolutely smashing my training this week! I moved a few sessions… Continue reading Base Build: Week 3/6
Week 2: Testing my patience This week has been a struggle. I started off with such good intentions and got to the pool ready to smash it on Monday. Turns out my body had other ideas. My shoulders were pretty sore going into the pool, but I was hoping they would loosen up a bit.… Continue reading Base Build: Week 2/6
