Hey ladies! Next weekend I am packing my bike and my padded bike pants to cycle 40k around the Brighton area for a Cycletta event. Freya have kindly sponsored my entrance to the event, and I have been out and about training on my bike (Steve the Specialized Hard Rock), to get myself in shape for it. More
Never one to make life easy for myself, I am currently training for Cyletta, a women’s 40k bike ride in Brighton in 2 weeks time, and Run to the Beat, my second attempt at the half marathon debut I made last year with Team Bangs on the Run.
As an endo warrior exercise is a hugely important part of my health and well being regime, also one that needs to be balanced carefully (see my post on Spikes and Heels for more about training with a chronic illness). More
I have recently been rediscovering the magical properties of Hatha Yoga.
As an endometriosis girl finding ways to complement my energy levels and cardiovascular activities are a challenge; I used to go to yoga before having the Mini Divas, and have been back for the the last 3 weeks for some much needed strength and stretching. More
Hello lovely Fitting Talk readers!
I am sure you watched the Olympic Opening ceremony like me on Friday – wasn’t it MINDBLOWING? I loved the whole thing, from Branagh as Brunel to Mr Bean, Bond and the Queen, Becks on a boat…all of it was magical inspiring and just so….us.
So in the Olympic spirit I am of course still training for Cycletta and Run to the Beat. On Friday I was out on my mountain bike in the fens for 17k bike ride, and today I donned my trusty Team Bangs on the Run top and my Freya Active set to crank out a 4 mile run.
I feel like I have such a long way to go to get my stamina back up enough to be able to do 13 miles in October, but I know the cycling as cross training will help, and I have enough time to get myself there slowly, week by week.
Howdy, lovely Freya ladies!
I hope you are just fine and dandy. Do you remember last year I ran my first ever half marathon in September? Well, this year I am going a step further; I am taking part in another Run to the Beat half marathon and also cycling 40k in the womens cycling event Cycletta. Both events are in aid endometriosis, a chronic health condition I live with every day that affects one in 10 women. More
