What a fantastic …


@pedalingheroine : What a fantastic four day track camp! We got some great work in with full commitment from everyone on the team - as always. It was epic. 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️ We thought there was a rest day tomorrow but looks like we are being thrown into a local road race (with the men) in prep for nationals at the end of the month. 😂That is gonna hurt but I am looking forward to it. 💪

@pedalingheroine : Satisfied with today’s efforts. Individual standing 500m, 750m and then 1km team efforts. My focus for my own efforts was to utilise all that gym work and get on top of the gear as fast as possible...it went well. 👍I’m buzzing now it’s a great feeling when you finish a really hard session like that. 💪 One more day of camp tomorrow so it will be interesting to see how the legs hold up. 😂

@pedalingheroine : At least I was happy BEFORE the efforts on track today. 🤮 Tough day in the office but got though it. 💪Sometimes it’s tough to focus on the “process” when your legs are screaming and you’re hyperventilating but that’s bike racing. 😂 Embrace the pain!! Looking forward to dinner out this evening rest and recovery before strength training tomorrow. 😀

@pedalingheroine : Day one of track camp ✅ Of course the first thing we do after the spin home is head straight to @cyclingplanet for some recovery coffee! ☕️ 😋 There were a lot of 4km efforts this afternoon and the legs are definitely feeling the sting...I will do some gentle foam rolling and stretching before bed in prep for some really fast stuff tomorrow. 🤮💪🚴‍♀️ Looking forward to it!!

@pedalingheroine : Totally candid photo thanks to @mia_griffin8 😂 2.5 hours easy on the bike today and it was glorious in the sunshine! We are heading into an intensive four day track camp starting tomorrow so it was nice to get some easy kilometres in before I have to flog myself on the velodrome. 🤮 Looking forward to some painful efforts though! 💥💪🚴‍♀️

@pedalingheroine : So I finally have my own (almost complete) track bike! I’m travelling back to Spain today and unfortunately have to leave this baby behind this time. 😭 I’ve removed the cranks which I will bring with me to make use of the @stagescycling power meter on the pursuit bike - It will be the first time I get any power data on track which is exciting! Thanks to @dublin_loves_bikes for building it for me. I can’t wait to actually race on it which will probably be at national track champs later this year. 💪🚴‍♀️

Nobody to take a …


@pedalingheroine : Nobody to take a photo of you? No problem. #mirrorselfie #basic I’m constantly noticing changes in my body shape (especially with weight training being introduced) - my legs are finally getting bigger. 👍💥 I have changed the way I approach my training and instead of being outcome oriented I’m trying to focus on the process and it’s really working. For example, I had a sprint session today and instead of heading out with the goal of “hitting a new peak power” I went out and focused on “pushing as much force through the pedals as I could”. I finished the session satisfied without even looking at the numbers. Turns out that I actually did hit a new peak power which is an added bonus! 💪 Feeling strong and looking forward to heading back to Spain on Saturday. 👍🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️

Before the sweat …


@pedalingheroine : Before the sweat fest! 2.5 hours on the turbo today even though it is 21 degrees Celsius and sunny outside (due to broken gear cable). 😭 I’m happy with how the session went anyway and feeling pretty fresh. It can be tough staying motivated in the middle of a long indoor session but try to remind myself that in a race it’s often your mind that goes before your body and turbo sessions definitely build mental resilience. 😂 Now it’s time for some coffee and soak up the evening sunshine. ☕️☀️

@pedalingheroine : Rest day today so here’s a nice one of Dad and me at the @robcyclekenmare sportive this weekend. Really nice to be able to share this sport with my family! It was actually my Dad that gave me my first road bike to commute to college in 2015 and I never looked back! I wrote an article for @rideshimano a while back on how I started cycling and racing - if you’re interested in reading about that there’s a link in my bio. 😊🚴‍♀️

@pedalingheroine : Easy evening spin with my Dad. After spending five hours in the car travelling from Kenmare to Dublin it was lovely to get some fresh air and evening sunshine. 🚴‍♀️☀️ I’m pretty sure that was the easiest two hours I’ve done in a long time and my goal was to keep my HR below 125 at all times. Successful recovery training. 👍 I’ll be fresh for some gym tomorrow! 💪
