Monday, December 30th, 2013

I hope you all had an awesome Xmas and have a great, prosperous New Year. I can’t wait to get 2014 started. Got a few new exciting changes for the next season and I’m convinced it’s going to be some of the best years I’ve had coming up! Lots of change in my world recently. […]

Finishing the season on the podium :-)

Monday, October 7th, 2013

This weekend I was competing in my last race for 2013 the Lanzarote 70.3. The last race of the year is never usually pretty for me. World Champs the biggest race of the year has usually been and gone and I start to get very tired and a little de-motivated. After 11 years racing I’ve […]

VEGAS BABY!

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Well what a week that turned of to be…  A very tough, long weekend on the body that’s for sure and it certainly turned out to have a bit of everything in there. The whole experience was so much fun. My training in Boulder had gone really well in those 6 weeks leading in. It […]

Ready to rock Vegas!

Friday, September 6th, 2013

  It’s finally here, World 70.3 Champs in Las Vegas this weekend. You can watch the action unfold live on Sunday from 3pm GMT here. I’m really buzzing for this race, but nervous! Trained really hard for this one, and think my fitness is in a good place to be ready for it. I’m still yet to […]

Reflections on Boulder

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Things are going well in Boulder in preparation for the highlight off the year on many people’s calendar the Las Vegas 70.3 World Championships. You might have noticed I’ve been pretty quiet the past month. I’ve not raced once, opting for a long preparation training camp instead. I wasn’t exactly ready to deliver a great […]

Racing update

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Hey everyone. Hope you all having great summer and thanks for checking by. It’s been a big month of racing my end with 4 big races in the past month. To be honest it’s not ideal when it works out this way especially from a performance perspective because you do start to get tired, underprepared […]

Overdue Update

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Hey everyone, it’s certainly been a while since I’ve last updated my website blog properly, apologies for that. You might have noticed that with most bloggers they only really update when things are going well for themselves! I try not get into this habit as everybody has good and bad times this but this time […]

2nd at St Croix 70.3

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Super happy to finish on the podium of this prestigious 25 year old race today after what can only be described as completely BRUTAL conditions. I guess I happened to have a bit more luck than others today and survived the “Beauty and The Beast” with the fastest run split to boot! Congrats to Richie […]

Snowy Boulder in Spring!

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

So it is STILL snowing in Boulder Colorado, the state which apparently has 300 days of sunshine a year! We have had 5 days of snow since we have been here and it’s starting to really frustrate me now… I cannot stand indoor training, especially riding on the turbo – but it’s looking like one […]

Final few days in Stellenbosch

Monday, March 18th, 2013

So I am already in my final week here in Stellenbosch after being calling it home for 11 weeks this winter! Time has flown by, and after mixed feelings about how it has gone I will be on the plane back to Blighty on Saturday ready to brave the cold yet again. Luckily I will […]

What a week

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

What a week I’ve had here in South Africa. Really, It’s been perfect here, non-stop sunshine, amazing cafe lifestyle, good company with my friends and training was going well. Nothing special but clipping away getting fitter each week and enjoying life more importantly.  I really appreciate being able to train here and live this lifestyle. […]
