Beautiful Sussex

The LB and I went on a beautiful bike ride today along the sea cliffs of the Sussex coast. The sun was high in the sky, and my heart was singing. The ride made me realise what an amazing place Sussex is, how much there is to take in, enjoy, make the most of – how little I make the most of it.

Tomorrow, i’m going walking across the downs with some friends. With so much open space around us, it seems ridiculous to spend more time than necessary stuffed away in the house.

Also – swimming is looking up muchly. A lovely friend of mine (you, Dave!) came along and gave me some swim pointers that i’ve been working on. Main priorities: more drills, breath every 5 instead of every 3, arm brushing hat, perfect tumble-turns. Woopwoop.

Current goal: March 7th – Aquathlon, 400m swim, 5k run. Fingers crossed the Achilles holds up..

Wed – 8k run, 10ish mile hilly bike
Thurs – 1500-2000m swim
Fri – 6ish mile bike, 2000m swim, 30min strength
Sat – 32mile hilly bike!

I'm an NCTJ Journalist and work at Cycling Weekly. Previous to this, I was the Editor at Total Women's Cycling. I've also dabbled in marketing and copywriting - having been Marketing Coordinator and Social Media/Content Editor at Evans Cycles. My first job was working on a local newspaper.  I've written for a variety of titles on a freelance basis, too. I got into cycling when I entered my first triathlon in 2010. I now race crits, road races, time trials, and do a lot of track training for not very much track racing.
