I have had a vague idea that I would try triathlon for a few years. I’m a keen marathon runner and had taken swimming lessons a couple of years ago to sort my breathing out but had never swam regularly or ventured out on a road bike.
I got injured at the start of 2020 and whilst this was a real blow to me , I knew I wouldn’t be able to do ‘nothing’ so started doing spin classes and water running as rehab. I then graduated to road biking and found I really enjoyed it.
I had seen Sam coaching at my Gym’s swimming pool and decided that as I loved running and had a new found liking of cycling, I would get in contact with her about adding swimming in, and finally change the triathlon ideas into reality.
From the very beginning Sam has been amazingly supportive. I hadn’t ridden in cleats or done any open water swimming and now regularly do both.
The training plans are structured and tough – every session has a purpose which I find massively motivating.
Sam feedbacks back regularly on my sessions and progress and is very approachable – you can literally ask her anything – no question is a stupid one!
The Tri Energy community is also very friendly and supportive and every ability is Welcomed with open arms. I’ve met loads of fantastic, like minded people and there is a real sense of emotional investment in Tri Energy which makes you want to be a part of it.
I’m in awe of Sam’s achievements and I trust her 100% to develop a plan that is right for me as an individual.
I feel like I’m getting stronger week by week and I’m looking forward to putting myself to the test in a race soon!
