HOORAY it’s XTERRA racing time again!

.Well it’s time to head off again to warmer climes and the Xterra race that is first on my list: XTERRA Philippines! My decision was built on if I can get through one race I can do more.. so I planned the Philippines as I had such a nice time out there last year with great hospitality and amazing biking experience with the locals crowding the small and dusty streets cheering us on with flags and happy smiles.:)

I  got the all clear from my surgeon to begin to race again at Christmas. So back on it and raring to go!…. Shoulder is the best it will get so just have to cope with the pain and impingement from the operation  oh and bone particles still in the supraspenatas. muscle..But  hey it is so much  better than it was in April last year! When I couldn’t move it at all..

It’s been a long journey of ups and downs, The summer was amazing once my head got round the fact that I couldn’t do any training I just let  go and enjoyed my time out…

Now my coach is back on board (Simon @ the triathoncoach.com) and my first day  back formal training was yesterday The swim was a shock to the system , but I was treated to blue skies and a clear blue 50m pool . Bliss.  Not being able to swim was the worst of it for 6 months. Have you ever seen someone do buuterfly with only one arm or one arm back stroke?? Well that was me everyday in my gym..Kicking for the first few months. Hell,  it was only until this year I was allowed to swim at all…. (officially)

Spinning teaching has been my saving grace, as it has kept the firmess levels up nice and high and kept me motivated.

I stuck it out with my stunt work  ( after a few months off)  and  I must say I missed going away and getting some good old sun and racing in…but I had some fun jobs…WATCH HERE:
