A Saturday in the life of a trying triathlete
charlieeliseby charlieelise Apr 22nd 2013
I planned to head out to Richmond Park for a bike/run brick session on Saturday. It struck me this is what most of my Saturdays look like this time of year... 8.30am Struggle to wake up. Only got myself to blame as I stayed up until 2.30am to wat...
London Triathlon 2012 - Race Report
charlieeliseby charlieelise Dec 29th 2012
This is what I have been working for all season. Building up to a charity place in the world's biggest triathlon. After training for a short sprint tri last year then taking three months off with only some cycle commuting, I went back to the gym in ...
Big bike day at Blenheim
charlieeliseby charlieelise Aug 28th 2012
I think I've been posting less due to my increasing worry about the event. Bristol I made it through but it was tough. London is much, much longer. My run is very much a work in progress - I suppose at least I know I can do a 10k - but I am taking a...
Training update: 25 weeks to go
charlieeliseby charlieelise Apr 1st 2012
After the flatness of the week before it was an absolute joy to feel good again training. Last week when I blogged I'd just done an interval hill training session in the sun and was feeling better for it. The week continued in this vein. Monday w...
Racing on Saturday
charlieeliseby charlieelise Mar 14th 2012
I was having a rest day last week (well, no training, I still commute to work). As I was pedalling home I started getting what felt like cramp in my right calf. So annoying. Extremely as it turned out - it went on all weekend whenever I stretched or...
Want to see my sausage? My Wattbike analysis
charlieeliseby charlieelise Mar 13th 2012
This was fun! Another good thing at the Triathlon Show was Wattbike. The guys there were doing pedal analysis and showing off their computers, gadgets and of course the bikes. I got a Trainer model, which is the same model they have in the gym. Appa...

The Triathlon Show Sandown Park
charlieeliseby charlieelise Mar 5th 2012
I only found out about the Triathlon Show last week when I signed up to Triathlon Wales and saw that Triathlon England members got a special deal on it. It didn't change my alliegence to my home nation despite living in London now but I signed up an...
Training update 4 March -29 weeks to go
charlieeliseby charlieelise Mar 4th 2012
It's the end of the week and I'm feeling apprehensive. February has turned to March and I know I've got a lot on my hands here. I got back from holiday last weekend and basically lived out the rest of the weekend like I was still on holiday. Went...
30 weeks to go!
charlieeliseby charlieelise Feb 28th 2012
This week is week 1 of The Plan. And so far, it has NOT gone to plan. Yesterday was supposed to be a rest day (I'm doing Don Fink's 'Just Finish' iron fit training despite not doing an iron). But instead I went sprinting with the running club and ...
Friday quickie: My 2012 goals, news so far and is this plan a crazy idea?
charlieeliseby charlieelise Jan 20th 2012
Work is crazy but I'm getting up early to train. Really good to be back in regular training but rain and long dark hours, plus living in London now is making what I call 'real cycling' a challenge, and I'll find any excuse I can not to run. I've b...
The performance - several months on
charlieeliseby charlieelise Jan 6th 2012
I said I would blog the actual race afterwards. And I haven't. Until now. Life got in the way. The day after the triathlon I moved from Bristol to London. And life got crazy and then I moved again and I've been working a lot, and not working out...
Pride comes before a fall...
charlieeliseby charlieelise Jun 17th 2011
My confidence has grown on the bike to the point where I was getting reckless which led to a little crash and a stupid fall while out brick training. I get to 30km/h and above often these days - which I never used to hit, ever, before. So I was d...
Core blimey, bike brake woes and it gets serious...
charlieeliseby charlieelise May 25th 2011
Last night's core blast went well. Legs feel like they had a good sprint on the treadmill - I ran for an extra 7 minutes and thank god, my hamstring has stopped hurting (new trainers, I thank you). I varied the speed and incline, and put my current ...
