2014 season down. What’s next?

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Well, that’s it. I’ve decided to call it a year. 2014 was one of my favourite years so far. All in 70.3’s I’ve taken two wins in Wimbleball, and Lanzarote. 3 x 2nd places in South Africa, Calgary, Barcelona. Then I finished 10th in the World Champs which was very satisfying if I consider I […]

10th 70.3 World Champs.

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Mont Tremblant 70.3 World Champs and the big goal of the year finished for another year. It didn’t all go smoothly, but I’m feeling proud of how I executed my race and how I over came the adversity to rescue a 10th place and the last prize money position. It was the best 70.3 I’ve […]

First 70.3 win at Wimbleball

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

It felt great to finally get that win this weekend in Wimbleball. When you race big races every time it can be a long time between winning races unless you’re the best! We had beautiful weather in Exmoor finally, even hot at times and the whole course glistens when it’s like this. It has to […]

Barcelona and onwards.

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Hello everybody, thanks for tapping in. Things are going well for me as we hit half way through the season. I’m just getting stuck into a meaty taper for UK 70.3 down in Wimbleball and I think I’m probably coming into some of my best shape of the season so far. It’s all very nice […]

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 […]

Snowy Boulder in Spring!

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

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

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sydney World Series

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

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 […]

Back to work

Friday, October 28th, 2011

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 […]

In Lanzarote

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

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 […]

First ever podium in Hamburg World Championships Series…!

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

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 […]

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 […]

Will asked me to post this link on his site: He did an interview with TRIfinder – check it out (some nasty photos there).

Another good week in Loughborough and coming up next…

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

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! […]
