Maintaining the life-training balance
Maintaining the life-training balance
This blog hopes to focus on the "life" side of the training-life balance that anyone training for triathlon will know can be difficult to juggle. No one really cares what interval set I ran today and how high my heart rate got so I won't try and impress anyone with those stats. Stats make the world go round though so for those who are interested I will have Garmin data available for each training session, most stats i throw around on a saturday night are made up, sadly thats not an option with the garmin so you can be assured at least that aspect of this blog will be honest.

Its Time for a New Challenge - Swimming 10km for 10k
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Nov 21st 2012
All my posts to date have been somewhat tongue in cheek with minimal relevance to the actual training I was undertaking. This post is different, in a big way. Introducing the 10kfor10k challenge! http://www.givealittle.co.nz/cause/10kfor10k I...

NoRestDays Day 20 - Contagious Infections
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 21st 2012
Some things in life are contagious and infectious, some things aren't. Some things in life are really good for you, other things aren't. Everyone knows a thing or two about infections that aren't good for you, most are an easy fix with a simple litt...
NoRestDays Day 18 - Sleep is for the weak
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 21st 2012
Some people wake up each morning and feel a million bucks, others wake up dead and require several hours to finally hit their straps. I used to lean towards the latter of these two extremes and would often struggle to make it to a 9am lecture at Uni...

NoRestDays Day 13 - Terrible choices
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 13th 2012
"Why the fudge did I do that" is something everyone will ask themselves many times in life. When it comes to making poor choices I like to think I'm one of those people that has it down to an art. Some of my friends like to think they are pretty goo...
NoRestDays Day 11 - Hump day
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 11th 2012
Hump day is probably the second most important day of the working week behind Fridays for most people. It symbolizes the beginning of the end and will either bring with it a whole lot of pressure to get things finished by Friday, or a whole lot of r...
NoRestDays Day 9 - Drugs are good!
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 9th 2012
After reading the title of this post my employer will probably want me to pee in a cup to see if I'm up to no good. I'm a goodie good at heart so you can rest assured this has nothing to do with illegal drugs. Over the months I've assembled quite an...
NoRestDays Day 8- The faster you go the bigger the mess
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 8th 2012
I'll start this post on an actual serious note and send some massive healing love in the direction of Sam Horgan who got caught up in a nasty crash racing in the Tour of Tasmania. A scary reminder of just how quickly things can go wrong and it doesn...
NoRestDays Day 7 - Double Dip the Chip
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 7th 2012
Double dipping your chip is considered to be a massive no no by many people. I personally haven't got a problem with it, in-fact I still operate by the 3 second rule when food is dropped on the ground. Those 3 seconds may even be extended to 5 or 6 ...

NoRestDays Day 5 - Mummys Boy
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 7th 2012
Most of my mates will be quick to tell anyone who asks that I am a mummys boy. Day 5 had me planning to head home and see Mum for the first time since she got a phone call telling her I had just been admitted into a Thai hospital. Mums always been g...
NoRestDays Day 4 - You get what you pay for
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 4th 2012
There is zero hidden meaning in the title of this post. Unless you're looking for one, in which case I'm sure your imagination is going crazy since I just got back from Thailand. Day 4 saw me on a work jaunt up to Auckland for the day. Unfortunately...
NoRestDays Day 3 - Who runs the world? Girls
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 3rd 2012
Guys love to talk the talk, few love to walk the walk. Today I asked Cam, who signed me up for this No Rest Days challenge, if he wanted to go for a ride after work. At 10am his response was "Yea mate keen as", by 4pm that had become "Na I think I'l...
NoRestDays Day 2 - That was no pool party
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 2nd 2012
The last time I entered a swimming pool was for one of the infamous Coral Bungalow Pool Party's in Thailand. Lap swimming and 100m intervals were probably the last thing on my mind in this instance but that's exactly what I had in store for myself t...
NoRestDays - Day 1
malcolmclelandby malcolmcleland Oct 1st 2012
Day one of the NoRestDays challenge caught me by surprise. I thought it started next monday so I found myself unprepared and unorganised but frothing at the bit to get stuck in. Day one coincides with the second day of daylight saving which brings w...
