Karine Fragniere is a 52 year old Swiss mother of 4 who did her first Ironman triathlon at the age of 50. She then went on to win her age category in the Zurich Ironman and qualify to compete at the World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
We chat about how to juggle motherhood and sport, ensuring the essential element of self care and making yourself a “more available mother” to your children. How to deal with mummy guilt, how exercise can help with your mental as well as physical health.
We talk about the importance of friendship and community, the benefits to children of growing up with a sporty mother and all about her new book, Ironmum.
She is now a coach, helping to spread the love of sport, health and wellbeing to other people.
You can find her book and more information on her coaching on www.ironmum.ch and follow her on Instagram on @ironmum.ch as well as on Facebook.
A really inspiring conversation that will motivate you to skip out the door for a swim, bike or run (or maybe all three!).
