Torq in your sleep

12 hr race – team of 4 people: sounds like fun!!


So me and Russ head down towards London to meet up with Mark and Jane to take part in this crazy Mtb race. I went first in the mass start and was chuffed with my time .. Passing the band onto Russ followed by Jane then Mark – 4th place ….. Well there’s only one way from here, we all wanted to hit the podium so game on – well so I thought. 2 miles into my second 8 mile lap I had a disagreement with a tree root and came off, not looking to much at my knee I got back on as fast as I could to pass over to Russ. Whilst he was out on lap 2 I jumped in a ambulance well more like Jane helped me into an amberlance when I then realised my race was over and I had a rather large whole in my knee. Gutted and frustrated does not even come close – game over for me, and 6 hours later 6 stitches from A&E. Well we alsmot completed 12 hours the only problem was 4 on the trail and 6 in hospital. So feeling a little frustrated. A few rest days ahead then back on it – I did check today I can still peddle 😉 

Triathlon 

So today Pullin Power participated in Tewkesbury Sprint Trithlon for some extra training – epic day with huge support and great results. 


Russ and me entered the race, Russ finnished with 1:42 and myself 1:45 so chuffed to be 1 min of Russ in the bike section – got all the motivation and drive I needed from the race to help me continue training hard before septs first race. Getting super excited now – not long!!! Trying my best to up the sessions to twice a week: train, fuel, rest – repeat!! Feeling super motervated 😝
Thanks to everyone who came along and support us today. Means so much to us so huge thanks X

Training dogs everyday with Tug (the best dog man I know) Huge thanks to Tug!
Running dogs almost everyday (unless too warm) from canicross, bikejoring, scootering and Rig teams. So impressed with the standard from the kids absolutely awesome job!!
Then there was kayaking, SUP, windsurfing and banana boating on the water – one women down in windsurfing but she’s ok (though cookie right Charlotte)

Dog power movie made its first showing in the UK – inspiring all the youngsters, fantastic movie, and gave me goose bumps
To Finnish the week of we cooked a feast of a bbq – and watched the sun set over the lake with one last game of capture the flag!!! Now I need a lot of sleep!!! Love it.
