Uplace BMC team camp and what’s next.

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Hey everyone. It’s been a decent start to the year, three 70.3 races down in South Africa, California and the Caribbean and now onto my next one in Barcelona. It’s been a pretty chaotic and busy start but after this things will settle down a bit spending the next 12 weeks at home and not […]

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. […]

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 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 […]

Mooloolaba, Gold Coast and Olympic selection

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

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 […]

Hello from Oz!

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Hey everyone I haven’t blogged for quite a while unfortunately mainly because it’s been quite a hectic period for me and I’ve been blogging a lot for Realbuzz which takes up a fair bit of my blog concentration!  So please check out the archives on that if you are interested.  My blogs can be read […]

My swim tips…

Monday, April 4th, 2011

I’ve been swimming for 19 years but I’ve never been very good… I work very hard in the pool but it’s still always been a struggle for me. If all the ITU guys in the world did a test set in the pool I’d probably in the bottom 20% in ITU racing. Sometimes I beat […]

Week 9 in Oz

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

I’ve been here for 9 weeks now and still loving Australia.  We’ve had an awesome month of weather, just a few overcast rainy days and other than that…too hot if anything! My tank top collection has grown to 6 since my 26th birthday! You won’t catch me wearing anything else now! The squad is battling […]

Preparing for BATTLE!

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Now the Xmas ‘break’ is out the way, training has well and truly resumed and we are settled into the rhythm here in Australia pumping out huge weeks…living and breathing triathlon. I must be training hard because I’m forced to take extra sleep during the day just to get through the week + I am […]

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 […]

Head down for 10 days.

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

I’m currently on day no.4 of probably the hardest block I have done this year.  I guess, it’s a “s%$t lets keep this season moving after a bit of a howler at the Europeans.  I spoke to Ben and Joel after the last race and we decided to really press on for 10 days leading […]

Get RIPPED, Get HUGE, Get PUMPED!

Rio Maior

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

The British Triathlon Team are now in Rio Maior, Portugal enjoying a solid week of training, all good! We are here ahead of the European Triathlon Champs in Athlone.  Apparently it’s a really nice race with lots of atmosphere. Ich is feeling pretty average so far but hoping to come good in the next few […]

Dunkerque French Grand Prix this Weekend.

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

I return trip from Korea went pretty smoothly and the most difficult trip of the year is forgotten! Don’t get me wrong I felt like crap when I arrived back from Asia hTe jet lag can be really tough, I’m not sure my body really knew where it was when I arrived back. I have […]

Camps going good.

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Girona is nice, really nice. Accommodation and food is really good which sort of partly makes the trip in my eyes. As long as it’s a nice interesting area and the suns out, I’m happy and we have that as well. We are under an hours ride from the Pyrenees here so a lot of […]

Lanzarote is great

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Been in Lanza for 5 days. Its been great, lovely temperature (for winter).  These Spanish don’t even know what winter is I don’t think! Nothing special out here, just very consistent training, hitting the important sessions and taking it easy in the recovery. Today we rode with Dave Mclean.  Don’t think I have ever ridden […]

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, […]

Training so far, 7 weeks in

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Cant believe this first part of the year has gone so quick almost Christmas and 7 weeks into my training, I’m really enjoying the process.  If you are looking for a good present for the family for Xmas… It’s quite different being coached by Ben Bright, things feel very under control, not one day is […]
