Lucy Gossage Triathlon

I never planned to become a triathlete but am enjoying where life is taking me! I’m a cancer doctor by trade and am currently enjoying a 2 year sabbatical from work. My 2015 goal is to qualify again for the Ironman world championships and banish the demons from a bad race there in 2014!

I’’m a big fan of the isogels on long runs – I love the fact you don’t need to take them with water. I also particularly like the Energy Source Extreme and always make sure I have one available to give me a kick in the last 10 miles of the run in an Ironman.

Top tips for aspiring athletes

Make sure you know why you’re doing it and try to keep it fun. I started triathlon as a hobby and it still feels very much like a hobby to me. If you don’t enjoy it you’’ll probably never get the best out of yourself. Join a club or find friends to train with and don’’t let it all get too serious!
