Tapering for Seoul

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Finally I’ve started my first taper for the Seoul World Championships Series. It’s awesome…but what a strange feeling! I think in a sport like triathlon it’s especially difficult to get a taper right.  You have 3 sports to train for so you always think you should be doing something, but if you do too much […]

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 […]
