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 struggle on rest days or lighter training weeks; despite reading and listening to many podcasts about the benefits of... Continue Reading →

After taking up mountain biking in November last year I have become addicted to off road riding. Mountain biking is such an adrenaline rush from constantly changing to terrain to short and hard...

Sat here after another busy weekend on call (better not jinx it actually as it’s not quite over – I still have Sunday night to go before I can clock off tomorrow morning) I thought I would look back on my month of May. Weekends on call always leave me feeling a little down. They... Continue Reading →
