Windsor Triathlon: Final Words

Writing my post about Windsor Triathlon was a bit of an emotional one! It got to the point that I’d written so much, I thought I’d spare you all the Thank You’s and do a separate post! SJ, who I ran with, from Powered by Cakes beat me to it, but inspired me at the same time with a name for the post!

A lot of work went into me getting to the start line of Windsor Triathlon; a lot of people and a lot of time! Here are my short and sweet Thank You’s:

  • Human Race for planting the seed in my mind, providing me with a place and organising me support
  • Strictly Swimming (Paul, Kat & Bartek) for supporting me with lessons from December 2014 through to April 2015
  • Nuffield Health for access to their gyms across London where I was able to get my swim practice in
  • Sweaty Betty for my first swimsuit in 10 years!
  • Sports Science Consultants for the very scientific fitness testing and filling me in on how best to train
  • Alastair of Pure Sports Medicine for working on my weaknesses (namely my neck and shoulders!)
  • Psycle for the spin classes to support my training
  • Marsha of RG Active for my 8 week training plan which I’m sure will be put to good use again soon!

  • Jeff of The Tonic for his lifestyle / training support at the start of my journey
  • Speedo for my awesome kit (via the #getspeedofit campaign with Women’s Health magazine)
  • Swim for Tri for my 6 week course of lessons (via the #getspeedofit campaign with Women’s Health magazine) and for my first experience in open water!
  • Spencer Smith (6 time Windsor Triathlon Winner) for his advice the day before our race and also for standing on the hill of the run route and cheering for us each time we ran past!
  • My friend Natasha for her awesome support on race day and for putting me up the night before
  • SJ for sticking with me through the entire event!
  • And to EVERYONE who listened to me talk about triathlon for the last 6 months, who shared their top tips with me and those who believed that I could do this!
