While she earned the silver medal for the women’s sprint distance race in the 70-74 age group, read up on her workout tips below and see that she still has a lot of racing yet to do!
Name: Georgina Jennings
Country: Great Britain
Age Group: Female 70-74
How you got involved in triathlon?
I used to be a competitive swimmer when I was young. I had been jogging with Werrington Joggers for a number of years, then in 1991 I joined Emap the publishing company and a guy named Ralph encouraged me to go to Pactrac the Peterborough triathlon club for a swim. Then in 1992 I did my first triathlon and in 1993 I competed in my first World championships in Manchester.
How often you train?
I train 6 days per week.
Best training advice?
Do it with other people. They motivate, encourage and push me.
What motivates you to race?
I enjoy the companionship of training with others, seeing different countries, and when racing the buzz and satisfaction of completing events.
Favourite swim workout:
I am afraid I only swim once a week and during the winter hardly ever, people wonder how I keep up the same times!
Favourite bike workout:
I bike 3 times every week and around 30-40 miles each time. It is virtually every week of the year and I ride with 10 men who make me work!
Favourite run workout:
I jog usually 3 times a week usually around 50-65 minutes.
