I came to triathlon following a Catherine Tate “I can do that” moment in 2009 at the age of 55. I was lucky enough to qualify for the World Championships with my first Olympic distance triathlon and went to the Gold coast as part of the GB team. That was enough to get me hooked.
Michelle’s programme has re-energised my training completely. I particularly love the key sessions – I just love the challenge of the sets and the feeling of euphoria when I complete them. I love the short-sharp bursts of speed – I am running faster than I ever thought possible.
Michelle is making me believe anything is possible – although with running still my Achilles heel, I think my best chance of winning medals will be when the ITU bring out a new rule that says no-one is allowed to overtake on the run!
