So here we are, week one done and 50 weeks until Ironman UK 2020…. 

I’m still struggling with my shoulder and have been signed off by the GP for another two weeks, so while speaking to Gemma, it has been a week on the turbo, my first weak on Zwift so I can get the legs...

So here we go again…. 

The last time I entered Ironman UK, I made it to the start line at Pennington Flash, and I had, by my standards a pretty decent first lap, but it all went wrong on the second. When my race day finished sitting in T1 with concussion after taking a...

It has been a little while since we last pushed a blog piece out. That isn’t because we have been lax, it’s because we are simply flat out! Race season is well and truly upon us now and our athletes seem to be racing every weekend at opposite ends of the country. We al...

Errrr wait, what is that?

It’s a daffodil.

Really? Are you sure?

It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were discussing Winter Training and how to ensure that you were getting enough vitamin D and staying safe on the wintery roads. Now however, we are racing towards the cl...

Whether we like it or not, winter is definitely here. The days are short and often accompanied by wind and precipitation but we are perhaps fortunate that the temperature is currently unseasonably mild.

Winter training is a staple of the triathlete’s life. It’s where we...

Race Date: 19 August 2018

I decided to have a go at triathlons because I wanted a new challenge. I wasn’t sure if was going to like it but wanted to try it out and see what I was capable of. Being a gymnast I was used to training hard but hadn’t done any endurance train...

16 Jul 2018

So I’ve not stood on the start line of any races since Ironman UK back in 2016, where the swim ended with the world in a spin after getting a little concussion during the second lap that brought my Ironman attempt to an end some 15 hours earlier than expected.

After tha...

We’ve all been there. We’ve finished a race, looked at our time, picked up our medal and gone about collecting our kit before going home without a second thought to the prize giving and roll down ceremony.  This is what we did after Ironman 70.3 Stafford. It wasn’t tha...

11 Jun 2018

This was the second year that I had entered this race, which involves a swim around Chasewater lake, a cycle through the nearby lanes and Cannock Chase and (new this year) a run around Stafford with a town-centre finish. 

Despite the large amount of logistical faff that...

8 Jun 2018

So the hard work has been done, you've been sweating all over your turbo trainer for the last six months, you haven't seen your friends for ages unless they too are training for the same event, the last week before race is the fabled taper.

Athletes all look forward to...

3 Jun 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve raced and I miss it desperately! Training has been pretty difficult and I must say, I’m in more of the ‘keeping fit’ zone than ‘training’ at the moment. My bump is showing and my exercise regime has changed drastically!

I first knew about th...

18 May 2016

So after my epic Mara-fail at Brighton Marathon, where I cramped so badly I had strangers trying to straighten me out, I went back to the drawing board.  I couldn’t understand why I had suddenly become prone to cramp.  Not just any cramp either, race-ending soul-destro...
