In the run-up to my first triathlon, Liz sent me this super-helpful post written by Susan Lacke on the No Meat Athlete's blog. I particularly made sure to cover points 5, 6 and 9 during the Jenson Button Triathlon. So if you're signed up for a triathlon or are even just thinking about it, this is a helpful list of points to avoid stressing out too much.
|If I can do it, anyone can.|
|I'm a recovery ace. So much so that I sometimes forget to work out before starting my recovery.|
I don't want to get into a huge debate other than to say that it's worked for me, I've seen huge improvements and I love the social and varied aspects of it. I used to get so bored with the gym and I love having people around to chat to before and after (and sometimes even during) a tough workout. Recently, there was an interesting article in the Guardian talking about CrossFit, giving it a fair assessment, IMO. The comments, too, are pretty hilarious, some people just have too much time on their hands!
Then there's this wee podcast you may have heard of? Marathon Talk. Well, the fabulous Laura from Lazy Girl Running is on there and you should give it a listen. She's fab, the show is fab. It's all fab! Fact.
And finally, this one was too good not to share (despite some gnarly spelling mistakes). It's 50 more or less clever tips on how to simplify your life and I bet there's something in there for you, too! Number two is pretty clever but three? Why that's never occurred to me, I don't know (or maybe cause I usually lick my Nutella jars clean?). I will definitely be trying 34 as soon as I have a kitchen again and 49 is something I will attempt to teach G.
Right, enough of this. Have a fabulous weekend!
What are you up to this weekend?
