Training with a baby isn’t easy and I’m having to rethink what is possible. I can’t train with many teams right now, but Team SOAS will always have a special place in my heart.
I haven’t swum since I gave birth as I’m no longer a member of my University gym. At the moment, I’m not a swimming member of Southampton Tri Club either.
I also haven’t been able to cycle as my turbo trainer isn’t set up. (There’s currently no room for it).
However, I have been running. Despite this, I’ve decided not to renew my membership with Lordshill Road Runners. I’ve run with the club for 5 years or so, but this year I’ve only trained with them twice and led coaching sessions for them, so I don’t think my membership fee is worth it. I may change my mind in 2017 and rejoin, but I’m more likely to track run with the tri club and do parkrun.
I am fortunate enough to have been selected as a member of Team SOAS again and will be rejoining some fantastic ladies. My friend, Abi, has also been selected this year, which is great.
We’ve already had some glimpses of the kit. There’s also a one-piece this year that Caroline Coble has been wearing:
I can’t wait for my 2017 kit to arrive and for me to wear it in a race 🙂
