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 […]

Trying to crack the USA!

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

As usual another epic trip to the USA done and dusted and now back home before the next adventure in Mallorca for a Uplace BMC team training camp and race! Its been a strange year so far. I’m not too sure where I’m at really. Ever since I started training this winter I’ve been struggling […]

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. […]


Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Well what a week that turned of to be…  A very tough, long weekend on the body that’s for sure and it certainly turned out to have a bit of everything in there. The whole experience was so much fun. My training in Boulder had gone really well in those 6 weeks leading in. It […]

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 […]

Overdue Update

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Hey everyone, it’s certainly been a while since I’ve last updated my website blog properly, apologies for that. You might have noticed that with most bloggers they only really update when things are going well for themselves! I try not get into this habit as everybody has good and bad times this but this time […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A big result in Kitzbuhel!

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Hello everyone.  I just got back to Loughborough after a longer then necessary days travel!  Phew I’m tired and my legs are way sore! Let’s not waste any time though, every day counts and it’s back to the grind but this time with heaps of motivation after a wicked weekend in Kitzbuhel! What a difference […]

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 […]

Rest days are the best days…

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Just polished off another great week with the squad. Kathy Tremblay has just arrived from Canada, she’s another Olympian and a great addition to the squad. She’s going to improve fast  We welcomed her into our squad with a posh dinner last night at Glass Restaurant where Clare works. Today we took our rest day. […]

1st week down in OZ

Monday, December 6th, 2010

It’s been a good first week on the Gold Coast. It is a long way to get here though, I’m not going to lie…that journey is a nightmare. We finally got here 3 flights later and we were greeted by RAIN, lots of RAIN! It’s not really stopped since I’ve been here! We’ve literally not […]

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 […]

London World Champs Series

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Notice how you didn’t get a race report straight after Paris… It didn’t go to plan!  A combination of getting screwed over by the race official and our rival teams and tiredness heading into the race from that 10day block! It hurts having a bad race….even if you can justify it.  We were meant to […]

Killing Time

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

We have arrived in Athlone, Ireland for the European Champs.  It’s nice to do a race close to home, with a bit less pressure then when we race on the World stage.  It’s also cool seeing all the British Age Groupers here, it only happens 1/2 times a year for me.  So I’m sure the […]

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 […]

Pre Des Moines

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

It’s been a great week over here in Des Moines. Our awesome homestay hosts Kerrie and Jason have gone well overboard to make us feel very welcome.   I feel so relaxed leading into the weekend that I could be racing in at home! It’s certainly a far cry from the usual waiting game based in […]
