@pedalingheroine : Got some hot yoga done this evening at @yogahub ! I really missed doing these classes and I always feel refreshed both physically and mentally when I do them. 10/10 would highly recommend everyone incorporating yoga into their weekly routine. It’s a great way to keep on top of stretching, flexibility and some strength work but moreover I find the meditative aspect very relaxing. 🧘♀️😀 Some day I’ll be able to touch my toes. 😬🤦🏼♀️ Mon, 13 Aug 2018 20:14:16 +0000
@pedalingheroine : BIG thanks to @dublin_loves_bikes for stripping my CAAD12 and fitting it with my @rideshimano power meter and di2 dura-ace groupset. I always loved the Cannondale frame and now it feels like a new bike!
I am currently working on geometry of new custom race bike from @fiftyonebikes and will get everyone involved in design of that once we move on to paint work! 😃🚴♀️ Sat, 11 Aug 2018 15:23:30 +0000
@pedalingheroine : So...apparently I’ll be in a documentary soon! 😱
What a privilege to be asked to take part in this series alongside some of Ireland’s top female athletes. I am aware that my story is a little unique in that I’m relatively new to sport (link in bio) so not the most established athlete in my field but I hope viewers will find my story interesting nonetheless. It’s called We Run the World and will be shown on @rteplayer soon. 🤗
Note: unfortunately this series will be GeoLocked to viewers in Ireland only for it’s first run. 😬 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 17:33:57 +0000
@pedalingheroine : Smiling my way though the 500m TT. 🤣 Thanks for all the messages/comments of congrats.
I was initially disappointed with my performance but the dust has settled I’m actually pretty happy with it. My time of 36.4s is fast for an endurance rider and looking at my faulty start and horrendous line I know that with technical/skill changes alone I could go faster. I will continue training endurance for now but would like to aim for a sub 36s 500m before ever considering looking into training as a “sprinter”. Absolutely loved my time at @glasgow_2018 and it was good to end on a high. 😀 Wed, 08 Aug 2018 07:47:07 +0000
@pedalingheroine : #transformationtuesday - I think it’s only fair to do one of these posts after my first championship competition @glasgow_2018 !
What a “steep” learning curve it’s been. 2016 was taken at one of my first local crit races at Corkagh Park which catered for beginners (what am I wearing?! 🤦🏼♀️). 2018 photo was taken yesterday after my 500m TT at the European Championships representing Ireland. The competition at this level is fierce and I have a long way to go but I’m really enjoying the challenge. Thanks to @cyclingirelandfed for the amazing opportunity! Tue, 07 Aug 2018 07:46:45 +0000
@pedalingheroine : Post race smiles. 😃 I competed in the standing 500m TT this afternoon at @glasgow_2018 European Champs. This is an event for pure sprinters and as endurance athlete my goal was merely gain race experience and get an official PB time. I clocked a 36.487s just 0.18s outside the national record. I’m pretty happy with that all things considered and with some practice out of the gate I could do a better time without changing anything else. Onwards and upwards! Photo cred to @davidfitzpix 👍 Thanks to @cyclingirelandfed for giving me the opportunity to compete. 🇮🇪 Mon, 06 Aug 2018 17:46:16 +0000
@pedalingheroine : I am having an amazing time at @glasgow_2018 European Championships. It is such an honour to be here wearing the Irish colours. 🇮🇪 I have to say I was absolutely terrifying to step up and perform on Thursday but anything that’s worthwhile in life is not easy. There have been highs and lows for us all but everyone is getting some invaluable race experience in a world class field. I’ll be racing an individual event on Monday which I’m really looking forward to. Thanks to @cyclingirelandfed for giving me the opportunity to be here, to @sportirelandinstitute for all the support staff we have been working with and @nugent2020 for his unwavering belief in this new team!

@pedalingheroine : Another good morning session done. ✅
Everyone is well prepped and ready to roll. Rest and recovery for the next 24hours so I plan on eating, napping, eating, Netflix, eating, sleeping. Exciting day ahead! Wed, 01 Aug 2018 10:33:20 +0000
@pedalingheroine : Training ✅ and team dinner ✅.
Almost time for bed (9pm 😂) and heading to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome tomorrow for some track time. Can’t wait! 💪Thanks to @cyclingirelandfed for giving me the opportunity to be here. I’m loving every minute of it. 😁🚴♀️ Mon, 30 Jul 2018 20:03:27 +0000
@pedalingheroine : Compulsory elevator mirror photo. #basic
Well rested after travel day and looking forward to some training this evening. After two easy days my legs are ready for some tough efforts! 💪🇮🇪 Mon, 30 Jul 2018 14:25:32 +0000
