    Mrs Dean’s Fundraising Challenge!

    Dear Oxford Grove School Council,

    My Journey towards Ironman

    Many thanks to you all for selecting Cancer Research UK as my charity to raise valuable fund for when I complete Ironman UK this summer. I am training hard towards completing my challenge of 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run (a marathon) on Sunday 15th July. I want to complete Ironman to push myself to the limits and challenge myself to do something completely out of my comfort zone – this is my personal challenge, what is yours?

    My training on a weekly basis consists:

    Monday: 3km intense swim

    Tuesday: Short intense interval training run of upto 6 miles and/or hockey training

    Wednesday: Watt bike (indoor bike) interval training followed by a treadmill run of about 25 minutes

    Thursday: Long Run – currently 1 hour 45 minutes or about 11-12 miles

    Friday: Rest day or extra swimming session

    Saturday: Hockey Match

    Sunday: Long Bike Ride of about 4 hours

    Since the beginning of January I have cycled 890km, run 284km and swam 35km.

    Here are a selection of pictures of my training:

    I would like to challenge the School Council to create a personal challenge that is physically active that you could get all pupils at school to take part, it could be absolutely anything such as how many star jumps you can do in 30 seconds but I’m sure you can come with something more imaginative!!
    I hope you found my letter interesting and I look forward to hearing about your personal challenges as this letter is about my personal challenge!

    Yours faithfully

    Vicky Dean
