Taking on the Slateman

Before we delve into my last race blog I would just like to give a shout out and thanks to my sponsors this year. Thanks to Gavin Richardson and Opus Building Services for their support this season, it was great to finally be able to race with their logo on my trisuit. Thank you also... Continue Reading →

Consistency amongst the chaos

I know, I know I've fallen so behind in writing these blogs. I've seriously missed writing them but life has been pretty chaotic recently and left me with not a spare second to sit down and write one, which is something I wanted to touch on in this blog. Consistency amongst the chaos. But first... Continue Reading →

Fighting fatigue…

OK, I admit, I’m not great at sitting still and not doing a great deal, in fact even on my so called rest day I’m sat here (at least that’s one thing) writing about triathlon!

I’d kept... Continue Reading →

Working full time and juggling triathlon is common place amongst a lot of triathletes but there are certainly aspects of my job that don’t go hand in hand with the sport. Becoming a vet has been my ultimate goal since around the age of 5 or 6. My life revolved around it. I spent my... Continue Reading →

DNS and Wimbleball

I had planned to upload this blog next week after competing in this Castle Howard Gauntlet triathlon tomorrow. Unfortunately I’ve had to pull out at the last minute due to going down with a pretty horrific stomach bug last night. I’ll spare you the details but it’s left me with zero energy and feeling very...
