Looking back and forward…

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 […]

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 […]

My big move to 70.3 / Ironman racing.

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

I’ve been hinting about it for a while but finally now I can start talking more openly about my plans for next year. I had to wait to firm up a few things before I made any announcement with my team, sponsors, British Triathlon and so on. I’ve decided to take my career away from […]

Coach Clarkey’s advice heading into the winter!

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

This is my first instalment of training advice heading up to Christmas.  It’s simple but effective advice and I hope you find it useful! Look out for my thoughts for Jan-April later on! Don’t be afraid to have a decent break It’s really important that once the season comes to a close, you take a […]

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 […]

Update

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

So, it’s been quite a week! I’m starting to feel a bit rock and roll recently after my new found skills in Hamburg!  I’ve picked up my new BMW 5 Series GT from ELMS Cambridge.  The locals call us the mainies now because we’ve been spending our evenings driving up and down the main street […]

Mooloolaba World Cup

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

The first one ITU race of the year in Mooloolaba is done and dusted. I ended up 11th and a bit frustrated but optimistic about the big one in Sydney.  To be honest I thought I’d go a bit better then that but unfortunately didn’t have great legs on the day for whatever reason. The […]

Australian Sprint Triathlon Champs

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Had an interesting weekend in Geelong for the race. I decided to drop in about 5 days out from the race.  I twisted my wrist while I was out running with Brad Kahlefeldt and Emma Moffatt. I thought that as my training is going to be disturbed I may as well turn it into a […]

The Team Dillon Warriors

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Meet the team! As you know Will is out here training with Team Dillon which includes Stu Hayes, Jodie Stimpson, Chris, Kathy Tremblay and coach Michelle Dillon. I took this shot at the pool today before they started, and trust me – they looked a lot different when they finished!! They are all doing a […]

Update…been a while!

Friday, November 19th, 2010

It’s been a while… My computer has been getting fixed by the ‘Genius’s’ in the Apple store! They can’t be that great, it took them long enough to realise whats wrong with it… Everything is going well, I am back training for 3 weeks now.  I’m really enjoying training under Team Dillon.  Michelle is a […]

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 […]

Honeymoon in Cambridge!

Friday, October 15th, 2010

It’s been a boring week but it’s given me a lot of time to think… It hit me once I got out of hospital that…”shit, I should be on honeymoon now driving through Nevada!” instead I am spending the day mincing around my parents house in Cambridge with Clare not really doing anything with our […]

In the wars!

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

It’s been a while since my last blog post! I’m not going to lie…other then a few days its been a rough few months. As there is so much for me to catch back up on how about I do a timeline for us. 14th August Kitzbuhel World Champs Series…the last time I felt normal. […]

Good luck in Budapest

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Well…things haven’t got better since my last post.  Just been trying to relax and enjoy some time off. It’s been a rough few weeks, I’m not usually a guy who gets problems like this however if I do they blow over within a day.  However this is dragging on like anything. Eventually my wounds got […]

MR. Crashey Bikey!

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

Couldn’t find a suitable picture! I stacked it a treat on my bike yesterday….Thanks guys for the support. It almost happened…I got a hole in my cycling shorts and 1cm more to the left would have left me being done for indecent exposure! Clark Ellice and I were out riding and he put in a […]

Kitzbuhel

Monday, August 16th, 2010

I’m afraid there was no magic again for me in Kitzbuhel this weekend, it’s not been the best season, just a handful of races to be really proud of…I’ll get my excuses out now! To be honest I’ve just been digging myself into a deeper hole as each race goes on and now I am […]

London Tri

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Raced London Tri this weekend. I tried something different (not sure why in reflection) and it didn’t really worked out but I enjoyed the weekend at my favourite race of the year. I had a great swim which is nice, I got round without getting beaten up and I had plenty of gas to play […]
