Ironman 70.3 Weymouth

It was meant to be the off season, I'd planned to race Ironman 70.3 Vichy and have a few weeks break and relax, butttt that didn't quite happen. Vichy went to plan, I raced well and was so happy to podium but also couldn't help being a tad gutted that I'd just missed out on... Continue Reading →

Ironman 70.3 Vichy

A couple of weekends ago I raced at Ironman 70.3 Vichy. This was my main race of the year, something I’d put a huge amount of training hours and hard work into. I’d said no to a lot of other races in order to peak at this one. I’d qualified for the World Duathlon Championships... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Kielder Off Road Duathlon

Last weekend saw me competing in my first race of the season…and my first off road duathlon in Kielder National Park, Northumberland. 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...

Off season

The off season for some is probably loooong over but not for me which is why I’ve saved this blog post until now. I’m not going to lie I struggled with the off season at the start. It’s a weird feeling….finishing a 13 month long season with a big European Triathlon Race and then having... Continue Reading →

European 70.3 Championships Ibiza

Last race of the season European 70.3 Championships Ibiza. I’d had so many doubts about this race before I even boarded the plane…it had been one hell of a long season, I’d struggled terribly for motivation in the last few weeks and if I’m honest I questioned whether I should going at all. I’d kept... Continue Reading →
