And so it begins...

This is City Girl Fit – the blog of a London-based, slightly overweight but somehow semi-fit Scottish girl with a serious gin habit, tracking my journey – dream?! - to becoming a lean and mean triathlete (with a serious gin habit). I could never give up gin – it makes me so happy, see:
I’ve been toying with the idea of training for a triathlon for a few years now. I can run (albeit slowly, never further than 15K, and only if my stupid knees allow) and I’m a pretty strong swimmer; as Meatloaf says: “two out of three ain’t bad”! But really, for a triathlon you need a bike, which I lacked – the perfect excuse for why I can’t do a triathlon. Then the boy bought himself a fancy new one for his John O’Groats to Land’s End cycle and I’ve inherited his old one (see below. Yes, he is named Lancelot. No, not by me) - so my excuse is out the window!  It’s not a tri bike, but I have to stop making excuses and start somewhere.
Through this blog I will track my journey from tri virgin to… popping my tri cherry, I guess?! But also, more generally, I’ll update on the runs, swims, spins, trips and falls on the road to improving my fitness and flexibility, ensuring that I hit my 30′s swinging (or at the very least with the ability to touch my toes!). It’s going to be a long hard slog, but I’m ready for it.
It’s time to tri… let’s do this!
