70.3 or bust

As most of you know who follow my blog, I exercised all the way through my cancer treatment, likening it to a triathlon of chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy. All this from the girl at school who hated sport and did anything she could to get out of it. I blame my husband - it's all it his fault. He introduced me to cycling. I was hooked, and then I discovered triathlons.

I had entered a large Olympic distance event in September 2015 but had to pull out because it fell in the middle of chemo. I was really sad that I wouldn't be able to do it. I did my local pool sprint triathlon halfway through chemo instead, very very slowly, which was a huge challenge for me at the time. However, once my radiotherapy had finished, I started to wonder - what could my body do now?
