This season is turning out to be quite different to the last. In a way I feel a bit daft for being surprised, but I didn¬'t see it coming. So it turns out that at some point in the last 6 months I seem to have got relatively happy and we...

It's fair to say that this week did not go as planned - not by any stretch of the imagination ! However I took positives out of it and made the best of the week where training was concerned and of course treated myself to some 'goodies' ! ...

I was in two minds as to whether to publish a blog this week as I'm tapering down to my next half marathon race on Sunday 30th June, however in the end I figured that if I merged 2 weeks training plus a race report then people just wouldn'...

One thing most of us like is goodies and if you're into a particular sport nowadays there will be a whole host of technical stuff to go with it. Triathlon, by its' very nature, triples the amount of goodies on offer :o) I've had to be f...

What a weekend! We went up to Nottingham on Saturday for my first sprint race of the season, which was also a World Championship qualifier and the National Sprint Championships. My mind is still slightly reeling from the experience. I w...

So I've been thinking for a while that I'm being rather lazy and not getting out enough, but with 3 hours in the car on top of 8.5 hours in the office I'm fast running out of hours in the day once my 4 year old son is bathed and put to bed ...

To shamelessly plagiarise the title of The Triathlon Shop¬'s (unrelated) film (here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vfhp42fe7aY , title also shamelessly plagarised), I am feeling a little lost of late. It¬'s been four weeks since half i...

I must admit I've been really lucky with the weather for my first two triathlons this year. Most of my friends started their season at the end of March in freezing temperatures but the sun was shining, the birds were singing & the water s...

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 2.3...

Suddenly it's the middle of March. The Virgin London Marathon #VLM is 4 weeks away, the Outlaw Half (70.3) is 10 weeks and the BIG one - Challenge Roth is only 17! Not sure why I'm surprised to be honest. It's the same every year. You cho...

Just a few weeks to go now until the 'big push'. By day, I live in the land of pilates bolster cushions, slip on trainers, gym balls and breathing exercises. I'm stupidly hungry all the time apart from when I'm stupidly full. The thought o...

The last 3 months have been not much else other than racing, recovering, quick bursts of training, then tapering, travelling, and racing again, and repeat. My club, Crystal Palace Triathletes, has been focused on getting results in the Tri...

My legs are ready to drop off at the moment - they're under attack from 2 disciplines, swimming and cycling. However I know it's all for the longer term good and I'm not training in pain (that would be stupid!) just building up to my next ...

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 breakfas...

As I write this post I am looking at my phone which is steadily counting down to the point at which I make my return to "competition", although I barely qualify as "a competitor", more as someone hoping to merely complete the event...and I ...

A brief, one-off, lifestyle choices rant if I may. Incited by the latest from insecure-neurotic-food-issues-huge-sense-of-personal-inadequacy-colleague-number-one. Fine. Plenty of people around with said issues, we¬'ve all got them in va...

As I've entered two open water based triathlons this year, I was quite worried about my ability to swim constantly over 750m without having any pool sides to cling on to for a breather. My swimming isn't actually that bad anymore; I have ...

Pardon me for stating the obvious, but this is the first time I¬'ve done a proper taper, and it¬'s great! Having only raced short distances before, ¬'taper¬' has just meant threeish days off at the end of the week before a Sunday race. ...

I'm wondering of anyone else has experienced the same issues as I have on my recovery weeks. As I drop my training by half and reduce intensity I find lots of niggles and aches become apparent. This is putting me off taking a break however ...
