STATUS Doing more of what I love and more for those I love.

About Me
Light-loving old lady who wakes up and moves in Spring and Summer then hibernates and blubber feeds for the rest of the year. Ex-runner, ex-cyclist, ex-walker, stbx-swimmer unless I get lucky.

My goals often exceeded my ability but it was fun trying - sometimes type 2 fun! I have imposter syndrome about my only Guinness World Record, and Bruce Springsteen 'Glory Days' as an earworm.

2024 goal - to replace both knees so that I can walk and cycle. Sadly, running won't be allowed. Done. On the road to recovery.
2023 - Thames Half-marathon swim - achieved, quicker than expected.
Big Welsh Swim - achieved. A swimming masterclass may have extended my swim career, time will tell.
2022 - Swim Ullswater end to end - managed 6 miles of it. Another team splash across the English Channel.
2021 - Splash my way, in company across the English Channel. Done. Twice. World record achieved.
Swim Coniston end to end. Done. 2020 - Recover enough from Long Covid to complete a parkrun. Done.
2019 - score 55% WAVA for 5k. 36.18 Not yet.
2018 goal - walk from Land's End to John O'Groats. helegantlejog was a lovely icon. helegant.wordpress.com Done.
2017 goal - bob, wobble and hobble all on the same day and to get a medal for it. Done.

What’s the best bit of advice that you would give to new runners, bikers and swimmers?
Best advice? Once you've got fit, don't lose it. It gets harder to get back every time.
