1st Lanzarote 70.3

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

I had an amazing week in Lanzarote. Took a big, hard earned win against some great athletes, caught up with 1/2 of the Uplace-BMC Team and spent lots of time relaxing before and after the race at the Active Sands Beach resort in the sun.  I have to say that things were really rolling in […]

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 […]

What now!?

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Hey everyone, I apologise to everyone if I seemed to have gone AWOL! I can assure you that it’s just a rumour that I’ve cracked and now I’m racing for the Democratic Republic of Congo… I’m sure 99% of you now know the news,  I didn’t make the Olympic team. You’re probably bored of talking […]

Past few months

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Well, that’s it! the final Olympic qualification race has been and gone and I have to say it’s a massive relief to know that our work is done and it’s finally in the hands of the selectors. The British Team await their fates on Tuesday night and I’ve got a bottle of champaign chilling in […]

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

It’s been a decent week…I’ve actually turned the DVD played off finally and I’ve been getting the blood flowing with some yogging…or it might be Jogging?!  It feels so nice to be out there amongst the clouds and mud.  I’m not feeling too bad so far which is crazy!  I’m even envisaging winning again and I’m […]

SLUMP…

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Great shot my Delly Carr! Everyone is always super quick to write when they have a good race… No one ever wants to write about the bad times…however, these are the most interesting and I hate it when people cover it all up with smiley faces as professional sport is not like this. I am […]

London 2012 Just keeps getting better…

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

I say all this should I qualify again! I know what a ball ache it is to qualify for the Olympic Games and I am also aware you have to be lucky as well but I get more excited about London 2012 every day… I first learnt that we were awarded the Olympics while having […]

Chris Thompson – Most talented distance runner we have?

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

I love following this guys journey…. He ran 28:02 solo at the weekend in Trafford for the 9th fastest 10k ever by a Brit! I knew Thommo a bit from Loughborough, I only ever managed to jump into a few sessions with him but I am pretty sure that he wasn’t any where near as […]

My favourite ever ride in Loughborough + SNOW!

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

The day started terribly. Wednesday morning swim, I hate Wednesday mornings. We swim at 6:00am and it sucks!  It falls right after my Tuesday run session and if I am tired at all when I swim…I can’t swim! We then had to ride indoors at 10:30am to get away from the snow.  I rocked up, […]

Day one Antequerra

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

Just arrived in Antequerra (Southern Spain) for our top secret British training camp. I’m rooming with Captain Slug Eyebrows, Aaron Harris again and so far its not been too bad.  Were not on the rocks yet and no real arguments! It is only day one however. Spirits in the camp are really good, its the […]

Peter Holmes

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

On Sunday night I received the terrible news that Pete Holmes, a very close friend of mine and a huge amount of other other people died by a fall while hiking in the mountains in Vancouver. I first met Pete in one of my lectures (I say lectures, I mean running around hockey pitch). Typical […]

Good Job in Clearwater boys

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

A shout out to two of my very good buddies who finished their season yesterday strongly with their main goal in Clearwater 70.3 Worlds. I think they both had mixed build ups but they did a great job, and not a nice event to suffer through! Im sure Frasers website will have a proper race […]

Great start to the winter

Monday, November 9th, 2009

I’m really enjoying being back into my training.  It’s probably been the smoothest start I have had so far, which is great because that’s how I need it to continue!  The weather has been amazing recently up here, it’s starting to get cold though but as long as the suns out, it’s a pleasure! I […]

Aaron Harris has got moves!!!

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

During the off season Aaron hasn’t just been sitting on his butt. He has been hitting the club scene and busting out some of the best moves ever seen…Enjoy

Tough Guy 2010

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

Granted, this race has been around for ages.  Most people know about it, but I am really keen to do this this year! I wonder if I can get round without getting injured or ill!? I’m going to get on the phone to coach!

Some recent bits of media…OOPS!

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Cruising around WHSmiths the other day in town…I discovered I have (I think) my very first front cover on my own on a magazine that you can buy in shops.  It’s a new magazine, I’m sure the sales will go through the roof for this issue! Flicking through the magazine, Multipower have also been doing a […]
