I launched LTR coaching in 2014 to provide a structured approach to training and nutrition for busy people who are balancing doing what they love, with family and work life. LTR stands for “love the rain”! Well you have to in West Wales, and I also believe that it’s important to use our setbacks (rain) to help us grow and evolve as athletes, and great humans.
Recently I completed the inaugural “women are not small men” course, run by Dr Stacy Sims, and have a passion for women getting the best from themselves, through supporting each other, and good information. I am dedicated to sharing advice, and supporting women at all stages of their life during their triathlon journey. I am definitely feeling some effects of peri-menopause, and have learnt a lot about managing the transition to menopause with training and nutrition adaptations.
I love racing, and adventure. One of the great things about triathlon is the places it takes you, and being able to train outdoors. I have always loved the natural environment, and doing triathlon means you get to enjoy some amazing scenery and go to race in different places, places that you may otherwise never go. I also believe that being outdoors is great for your mental health and during peri-menopause, we can use this to help us through tough times.
