Triathlon Training & Races - Matt's Blog
Sharing my experiences in training, racing and learning the 'science' of progressing in Triathlon - from total novice to top-ten finisher (and hopefully beyond!). Stop by to listen to what I have to say, but don't forget, the whole point of web 2.0 is interaction, so don't be afraid or too shy to leave your own thoughts!

Warning: This message will self-destruct in five seconds!
prhimby prhim Feb 13th 2011
So today was the start of my 2011 season, with a little run around the Wokingham half marathon. This was designed to be more a test of pre-season / post base-training fitness than an all-out 'race' (I'm no distance runner...). Having completed the...
Pain Part Three: Hurt
prhimby prhim Feb 9th 2011
So far in this three part blog saga I've looked at 'Fatigue' and 'Exertion' as two of three main types of "pain" (if you haven't read the previous instalments, you should be able to find them below this posting). Now it's time for the final part, "h...
Pain Part Two: Exertion and how to use it
prhimby prhim Feb 2nd 2011
Having explored the first of three pains (fatigue, exertion, hurt) in my last blog, this week it's time to look at exertion. Again, there is a massive caveat that I am no expert, just a layman. But if any of the following strikes a chord or gives you...
Interpreting and understanding pain
prhimby prhim Jan 26th 2011
I was casting around for ideas for my next blog post when my coach (twitter: @gobi_one) suggested I explore the concept of pain. No surprise to hear that suggestion from a coach, perhaps. After all, they must enjoy creating pain; why else would they...
New Year's honours list
prhimby prhim Jan 9th 2011
As triathletes, we're all too aware that triathlon is a solo sport. Whether you want to beat your fellow competitors, beat the clock or simply beat the finish line, the difference between having a great race and one you'd rather forget is pretty muc...
The appliance of 'intelligence' to winter training
prhimby prhim Oct 26th 2010
At the end of my first full season of Triathlon, I'm the first to admit that my training over the last 14 months or so has lacked any real scientific or programmatic basis. Put (perhaps a little over) simply, I mainly concentrated on doing either a)...

prhimby prhim Jul 29th 2010
ill. And like most men, I don't do "ill" very well. Just a bl**dy stupid seasonal cold, but one that has now totally outstayed its welcome and really should just bugger off. I've been a good boy and done no training or exercise whatsoever for fo...

...resting. I've commented previously on how I hate taking rest days; how it feels like I am wasting on opportunity to improve at least some element of my triathlon performance. But this week I've felt so tired (I suspect due to a combination...
More lessons learned
prhimby prhim May 10th 2010
Yesterday was my first ever open water triathlon; and like pretty much every other race so far this year (have now done three Duathlons and two Triathlons as part of my 12-race Year of Living Painfully - www.justgiving.com/mjfisher2010) it proved to ...
A week of firsts
prhimby prhim May 5th 2010
It has been an interesting few days, with a couple of firsts for me. Ahead of the Cotswold Super Sprint this coming Sunday (9th May), I wanted to get a first open water swim in a wetsuit under my belt. So equipped with my new Orca Sonar wetsuit ...
The sun is out... and everyone is happy :-)
prhimby prhim Mar 24th 2010
Today was meant to be a rest day (from running, at least), but this strange golden orb appeared in the skies above Newbury and suddenly the temperature lifted a few degrees, meaning you could actually stand outside without thermals... Needless to ...
Work interrupts play - again
prhimby prhim Mar 18th 2010
I knew it was coming, but still the reality seemed to hit faster than I was prepared for. This week we moved offices 30 miles or so down the road from Swindon to Newbury. Big deal you say, so what's a little extra commute? All true, but I hadn'...
Praying for good weather
prhimby prhim Feb 5th 2010
It feels like ages since I had a good outing on the bike; hoping that this weekend will remain dry (cold and cloudy I can deal with, just not torrential downpours!) so I can get some miles under my belt. I'm now beginning to learn why some triathl...
I'm broken... apparently!
prhimby prhim Jan 5th 2010
I guess one of the good things about getting a personal trainer is that they notice things you don't. Sometimes good; but mostly (in my experience anyway!) bad! My trainer recently commented that I had 'huge' errector spinae and that these were p...
Oh the irony....
prhimby prhim Dec 26th 2009
It isn't lost on me just how ironic it is that, shortly after my last blog post about training levels, I should find (and exceed) my current limit. With typically impeccable timing, I managed to run myself down and catch a cold just in time for Ch...
