Run, ride, sink or swim - a rookie's year in women's triathlon
Lucy Fry
Paperback / softback

UK Publication Date

the age of thirty-one, Lucy Fry was pretty certain she knew her limits.
And here's how she felt about the component parts of triathlon: swimming
- fairly terrifying, especially in open water. Cycling - brilliant when
done on a stationary bike, indoors. Running - sometimes fantastic,
sometimes hideous. But as increasing numbers of her female
friends continued to sign up to tri, Lucy couldn't help wondering: what
was it about this exhausting pursuit that women seemed to find so
magical, so transformative? The time had come to find out.

one year, five triathlons and hundreds of training hours, Lucy uncovers
the ins and outs of women's triathlon: how to wear a sports bra under a
wetsuit, the competition and camaraderie, whether getting over 'jelly
legs' makes you a more resilient human being - and finds that maybe she
doesn't know her limits after all...

Funny, warm and engaging, Run, Ride, Sink or Swim
is for both the tri-curious and the dedicated tri-hard, and for any
woman looking for inspiration to make the transition from sofa to start

A charming read about taking on way more than you ever dreamed possible ... A fun, approachable place to start if you're thinking of moving off the pavement towards other disciplines, and a wonderful reminder that achievement need not mean going the furthest or fastest, but merely moving beyond your own expectations.
Alexandra Heminsley (author of RUNNING LIKE A GIRL), Independent on Sunday

Excellent ... I am seriously enjoying nodding along to this very honest and funny account of Lucy Fry's year of triathlons. A reassuring must-read for anyone embarking on becoming a tri-hard.

"At the age of 31 I was pretty sure I knew my limits." So says Fry.
At the age of 39, reading her absorbing and inspiring memoir, I am no longer so certain of my own.
Ruth Field, author of Run Fat B!tch Run

An entertaining insight into the mental, emotional and physical challenges Lucy Fry faces. You also get to laugh at her (many) mistakes along the way.
