Issy Morris

Triathlete

Issy Morris is a 22 years old elite triathlete training in the National Triathlon Performance Centre Wales, based in Cardiff. Issy has always had a passion for sport and grew up playing pretty much any and all sport she could! She first started triathlon at the age of 13, however had no idea it would be the sport that guided her throughout the next ten years of her life.

“Forth Edge has become the most important aspect of my training. It enables me to track how my body is coping inclusive of the varying training loads and life stressors. Most importantly, the bio markers can flag if attention is needed often before any physical signs manifest themselves, really giving you a head start on ensuring your body stays healthy!”

Issy went to Cardiff Metropolitan University where she studied Sport Studies and is now waiting to begin her masters in Sport and Exercise Nutrition.

Her sporting career to date has shown her how vital fuelling is to her overall performance but most importantly her health. Forth Edge has been a vital part of this journey for Issy, as it has flagged when her hormone levels were not where they should be, even before any physical signs appeared.

Issy started using Forth Edge when she found out she had RED-S. She used the Female Fitness test every couple of months to see whether her hormone levels were increasing to the correct levels for her age. This was invaluable as with a condition like RED-S the signs are often hidden or masked.

Now that Issy’s hormone levels are where they should be, she is using Forth Edges’ new Female Hormone Mapping product which will allow her to track the changes in her hormone levels throughout her menstrual cycle. By doing this, Issy is able to work with her doctor to assess how much she can increase her training.

Issy will also be using Forth Edges’ Female Fitness tests four times a year to ensure her body stays healthy and happy. This will be invaluable to Issy’s training and overall health as she will be able to monitor how her body copes internally throughout winter training with high training loads, and also in race season where stress levels will likely be high.

Issy's Favourites

Q. What is your pre-competition meal?

A. If it’s pre-race morning it’ll always be porridge with banana and honey. Usually in the form of a large porridge pot as it can be easily packed and eaten wherever you are in the world! If it’s the evening before, my go-to is always pasta!

Q. What is your go-to treat?

A. This varies a lot but you can’t beat a good sticky toffee pudding with ice cream.

Q. Favourite music for motivation?

A. I’m useless with names of songs so it’ll tend to be a random motivational playlist already created on my phone. But you can’t not feel motivated after a bit of Eminem.

Q. What Superhero would you be?

A. Not really the superhero type but I guess being spiderman would be pretty cool.
