So it is STILL snowing in Boulder Colorado, the state which apparently has 300 days of sunshine a year! We have had 5 days of snow since we have been here and it’s starting to really frustrate me now… I cannot stand indoor training, especially riding on the turbo – but it’s looking like one [...]

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. [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
HUGE congrats to all of the women competitors in today’s London 2012 Olympic Triathlon down in Hyde Park. Most of all to Nicola Spirig of Switzerland and of course fellow Triathlon Team member Lisa Norden for fighting so hard to the finish line. You had us all on the edge of our seats – what [...]
Hi everyone. I’ve been getting settled back in the UK for a week now and I think I had a fairly good trip back after my race in Sydney. I’m just getting settled back into a routine now. Training changes now I’m home to fit in with all the various groups here. Takes a while [...]
I hope you all had a great season this year! I certainly did and I enjoyed some nice relaxing time off to recover the body and the mind! I holidayed in Ibiza for 3 days and then 2 weeks cruising around Florida with Clare in a convertible for our more chilled holiday! I definitely wouldn’t [...]
I’m currently out in Lanzarote doing a big block of training ahead of London World Championships Series. I pulled up pretty well from Hamburg all things considered and went straight into hard training out here. Club La Santa is an awesome place to train, Conor Murphy an Irish athlete joined me for my biking and [...]
I’m currently on the plane to Lanzarote ready to get back to some hard preparation ahead of London World Championships Series, but I’ve got a massive smile on my face because this weekend I finally got myself onto the podium in Hamburg which is my first time ever in a World Championship Series. I finished [...]
My awesome sports nutrition sponsor Multipower have created a competition to win an exclusive training break to Club La Santa on the 18th-21st July. Club La Santa is an awesome place to visit for any athlete. You’ll enjoy swimming in their 50m outdoor pool meanwhile getting a deep bit of bronzage! Cycling up Mirador Del [...]
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 [...]
Will asked me to post this link on his site: He did an interview with TRIfinder – check it out (some nasty photos there).
Just ticked off another good week. Lots of hard training, something hard every day in fact which tends to chafe! I managed to find a few pictures from the Cross Country. I Felt fine coming off it although they do leave you in a bit of a hole for a while. Check out the mud! [...]
Cool guy for Chris Lieto to know. Fair play, thats good riding!
Personally i haven’t seen it looking that nice yet!
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 [...]
Had a nice start back after a 2 year break from the Cross Country today. I hate this course, it’s muddy as hell and that just doesn’t suit me at all! The organisers always insist it has to be 15km over a stupidly hilly and muddy course! I was happy with my position today, it’s [...]
There really is not a lot to talk about at the moment my end. My heads down (in the sun) I am swimming, biking and running every day and 2 times a week in the gym. I have zero gossip, no one is ill, no one is injured and without any parties or racing not [...]
Hey guys. I had a wicked race the other day at the 4 mile race. Just to get it straight I didn’t eat Pasta Carbonara for Xmas dinner, I did have the full turkey and lots of Chocolate:) I do it every year. Last year I ran 19:30, but this year I wanted to go [...]
Wow, it got cold while I was away! It was hard work out in Spain, I didn’t feel good on any particular day, I trained quite hard into the camp so I think there was a lot of accumulation in my legs. When you don’t feel tip top it always seems that everyone else is [...]
