    Finding the balance in life!

    This week has been half term which should mean I have had lots of time to train, but sadly this has not been the case! My husband has also been off work which means my priorities had to shift slightly from being training based to family focused!

    Weekend Training

    Saturday started off with a quick cycle round the Derwent water doing a recce for the Short Triathlon for a friend and also a warm up for myself before I went for a run. The cycle was a leisurely pace which was good as I was planning on doing a run afterwards. As we cycled round the lake I noticed the clouds were really low and i couldn’t help think to myself that my planned short lattrigg run might turn into a longer skiddaw run to get above the clouds.
