Challenge Roth - July 2013
mhowoodby mhowood Dec 21st 2013
This needs to be a long report. It was a long race. Challenge Roth 2013. Billed as my A race of the year, and an extravagant present (to myself) for my 40th birthday, it almost feels anticlimactic now in the heat of summer. A season over by mid Ju...
Outlaw Half. 2 June 2013. "Just the fact's, Ma'am"
mhowoodby mhowood Jun 3rd 2013
I stayed at The Swans Hotel again. Family room, and we had the kids tucked up in bed by 8, with me following suit 30 mins later. Kit all laid out and ready in the bathroom. Eye mask and ear plugs! Alarm set for 4:15am and a breakfast of: 2 b...
Back from the Dead
mhowoodby mhowood Jan 3rd 2013
After a year out of Triathlon and racing in general, it's good to feel like a comeback is on the cards. Priorities change. Life gets in the way. Basically, shit happens... and it did, by the bucket! It's not always an easy journey, and triathlon, ...
I Need An Exit
mhowoodby mhowood Feb 9th 2012
6 weeks since my last post. Why? Because nothing has been happening. Training has been virtually non-existent, and I think I've been in the pool once - although I may have dreamt that. Again. Why? What's changed? Work. I took a new job in J...
Postives from Negatives aka Challenge Henley
mhowoodby mhowood Dec 30th 2011
6 months since my last post, 'It's all Mental' Yowza! What's been happening? Well, I went from that to Challenge Henley in September, courtesy of Swimovate, averaging only 6 hours a week training; it's not that I wanted to train as little as tha...
Outlaw Triathlon 2011 race report
mhowoodby mhowood Jul 26th 2011
...or, How Not to Take Long Distance Seriously. WARNING: this is epic in length, but I'm reliably informed by Nathan that this is how it should be. Also, to save you all scrolling to the bottom, I'll tell you the time first > 11:34 hrs. Excus...
Suck it up, Buttercup!
mhowoodby mhowood May 12th 2011
How long has it been since I blogged? Weeks? Months? It's all been a bit busy since the Brighton Marathon. School holidays. Increased mileage on the bike. Organising the Thames Turbo PowerBar team (we're leading the London League). Post-maratho...

Kingston Breakfast Run - not a good day at the office
mhowoodby mhowood Mar 28th 2011
I haven't written anything since my Wokingham Half report, which began with me posting a 1:21 and a 5 min PB and ended with food poisoning hours later! I'm writing this post the morning after 16miles at the Kingston Breakfast Run. Lets get this o...

Winter Tanner 20 report
mhowoodby mhowood Jan 10th 2011
Since the Winter Tanner isn't technically a race, I guess this is an Event Report. I intentionally approached the Winter Tanner fatigued; with a Thursday turbo session, a Friday tempo 10 mile run and long swim on Saturday night, all conspiring to ...
New year. New post. New targets.

Running in Narnia
mhowoodby mhowood Dec 20th 2010
Firstly, loving the snow! I didn't have the greatest time of things towards the end of last week, as I spent a good part of Thursday in-and-out of Hospital and Doctor's surgeries trying to get treatment for a fever and badly swollen and painful te...
So far, so good, so what?

A Cunning Plan
mhowoodby mhowood Nov 20th 2010
With an every growing list of Triathlons, Duathlons, and now Ultra runs that I want to do, I really need to get around to whittling them down. Focus, might be a better word. It seems virtually every weekend next year has an event I like, some even h...
I swore I'd never have a blog!
mhowoodby mhowood Nov 19th 2010
I swore I'd never have a blog! It's true. I always distrusted people with blogs: Who cares what you had for breakfast, I thought. So what if you got a parking ticket?! Please take your megalomania and go away! But here I am. Breaking my own...
