WE DID IT!! 🏊‍♀️ 🚲 🏃‍♀️ 

Completed my first Triathalon today!! 😁 Grantown Try Tri 

Did it in 1hour 29mins, I was aiming for 1hour 46mins so super impressed with that 😂 

Definitely not fun, was soo difficult and I ache everywhere but yet wanna do it again?🤷🏼‍♀️ 

I did this to fundraise for Glendrick Roost Animal Welfare Centre which is a small animal sanctuary in Stirlingshire. They rescue abandoned, abused and neglected animals ranging from gerbils to Clydesdale horses and everything in between!!
They give a home for life to all the animals! 🐎🐐🫏🐏🦉🐌🐱🐍🐢🐶🐰🐮🐥

Thank you for your support on my crazy antics and fundraiser😊

About the charity

The charity I have chosen to raise money for is Glendrick Roost Animal Welfare Centre which is an animal sanctuary based in Stirlingshire. They rescue abused, abandoned and neglected animals, anything from small furries to highland cows and everything in between! 🐶🐱🐰🐮🐥🦉🐌🐍🐢🐎🫏🐐🐏 1715630016_img_5062.jpeg

This sanctuary gives a home for life to all the animals. They get to live out the rest of their days being spoilt either by the volunteers or the visitors that come to see them.

The sanctuary only rescues dogs with a disability as they are harder to find homes for because no one wants an imperfect dog. They are either blind, deaf, three legged, have heart conditions or epilepsy. All are given a home for life at the sanctuary. 1715630840_img_2194.jpeg


Please support this amazing charity and the animals that live there! Any donations are much appreciated 😊
Thank you for reading and your support😁

Training log

6k cycle to the swimming pool. Embarrassed myself in front of school kids cause I was on the wrong side of the path and they told me that😂 but oh well it was a good cycle and then did a 400m swim, at first my arms were like jelly from the cycle but I soon recovered and felt stronger during the swim 💪🏽 

Then a 12k cycle back, was a good ride and made good time, did some up hill training as well.
Then straight after the cycle I did a 4k run to practice the transition was very difficult, my legs felt so heavy!! First 3k was alright but the last k was more of a walk than a run 😂 but oh well was proud I did it 😁

Triathalon training couple weeks ago

Triathalon training couple weeks ago with my friend in Inverness. First day we did some running round the uni which has a 1k loop, this was hard. I hate running and especially long distances 😂 but managed to run 3k which I was proud of but was extremely tired after it!
the following day we practiced our 300m swim and timed ourselves to put on our triathlon application. I love swimming so I was really confident with this one!
Then we did a 12k cycle round Inverness uni and had to cycle up this massive steep hill, really working the calf muscles!! Felt like it took forever! But wasn’t as bad as the running 😂

Thanks for reading! 😊

I am raising money for Glendrick Roost Animal Welfare Centre which is an animal sanctuary that rescues and gives a home for life for abused, abandoned and neglected animals. They have over 100 animals at the sanctuary. All the dogs rescued have a disability as they are harder to rehome such as blind, deaf, heart conditions, three legged and epileptic but they all have a home for life at the sanctuary and are given endless amounts of love and attention they need.

I am doing the Grantown Triathalon in May with my friend Dionne, which this was all her crazy idea! 😂

Will post updates on our training and of the completed triathlon 💪🏽 

We won’t be winning any medals, just doing it for fun? 🤷🏼‍♀️ and to raise some much needed funds for a charity in need.

Anything you can donate is much appreciated!
Thank you for your support😊
