Tip’s For First Timer’s Doing The Marlborough Woman’s Triathlon

With the Marlborough Woman’s Triathlon this weekend, I thought I’d put together some tips for some common questions. If you are a first timer and have a question not covered here, please reach out on Facebook with your question and I’ll update this article with an answer. If you’ve done the Marlborough Woman’s Triathlon before and have a tip to share, also touch base on Facebook and I’ll include your tip for the benefit of others.

Lisa’s Journey, Week 27: Marlborough Women’s Tri… tick!

I’ve actually not got too much to report training wise. The last week was a hike and a bike. Yip that was it! Seems even worse now, having just typed it. It’s like saying it out loud. So, I was…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 26: Head in the clouds…

I had a message from Ray who’d obviously seen a workout and said I looked like I was walking up in the clouds.  I wasn’t sure what he meant until I saw the picture.  Haha nothing gets past him!

Lisa’s Journey, Week 25: Just dive right in…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 22: 154 days, 3696 hours…

Sometimes it just feels good to sweat it out!!! Fitness wise, it HAS been a better week!! (Large sigh of relief). After not having done a lot, I was feeling  better and my first bike ride felt great.  It was…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 21: Next week… will be a better week!!!

This week is not about how much exercise I’ve done, because there’s been not much (said in a whisper, because I don’t even like saying it).  So there’s been one run to follow my Glenorcy run.  It was along the…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 19: Get your inspiration from… anywhere you can!!

Wooohoo, last week of school term!  I’m looking forward to turning the alarm off for two weeks! This weeks been a ‘meh’ week.  Friday came and it was time to take some deep breaths and clear my mind. So I…
