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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Holidays are over

Monday, November 12th, 2012

Well that’s the holidays over again for another year!  I had a great few weeks in the Seychelles as well as quality time doing normal things with friends and family at home.  Seychelles is definitely the most remote place I’ve ever been. It’s closest next point of land is Somalia and it’s definitely got that […]

My Weekend in Stockholm…

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

I’ve just come home from an exciting weekend in Stockholm, Sweden. It’s a new flag for me which is always nice, I love to travel somewhere new as sport usually takes me on multiple, almost cloned visits to the same locations.  I thought that Stockholm was beautiful place, however it’s extremely expensive and definitely far […]

The Hamburg Love Affair Continues…

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

As usual Hamburg World series last weekend didn’t disappoint. We were treated to, as usual, amazing enthusiastic crowds, perfect organisation and very fast, exciting racing. This is the best event on the World Triathlon circuit by a long shot and it’s always a pleasure to race here. Luckily I’ve always loved racing in Hamburg and […]

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 […]

Things are starting to wrap up on the Gold Coast and we’re coming into the start of the race season again. I’m looking forward to getting home, It’s gone amazingly out here and I wouldn’t change one day. It’s really important to get in a big winter in order to go well for the whole […]

I am back home now after a tough past month of training and racing, but my season is now finished now and I’m really excited to relax and recover after my best ever year. Since my last blog it all started to slip through my fingers a bit!  I picked up a bit of a […]

Some shots from today…

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Today I raced a 5k. It started at 7am…I have to do a morning run before any race so this time I took my camera…may have looked a bit weird in my running kit at 5:15am carrying a big camera taking shots of the sunrise! This is the secret though…you gotta get up early if […]
