Well my first advice would be don’t. If you can possibly avoid it. But sometimes life gives you five days notice and these things have to be done. Based on this weekend’s experience as part of a relay team at Outlaw here is my ad...

It’s been over three month now since I completed my Ironman on the island of Elba and I feel well-recovered from it. In fact, much to my surprise, I never suffered physically that badly afterwards. Except for some blisters and sore le...

The objective of all training is to achieve the greatest level of adaptation, not to become the most tired. Lots of athletes train to get tired or to burn calories. Go ahead and burn calories if you want to work out and lose weight. That...

It's a little over a week until the Cheltenham Half Marathon, my first event in a little over 2 years. As usual my training regimen has been sporadic to say the least and the furthest I've managed was a little over 11km while we were on ho...

A week has already passed since I set up base camp in Gibraltar. Time flies when you're having fun! I suppose everyone's idea of 'fun' is different. In may case, spending the majority of my day on a bike saddle, in the sea or in my running...

It is race day and I have my race number, my pins and an old t-shirt and football shorts on. This is the day that my training must come together to survive a 10km run. I do not see my brother on the start line, but know he is around as run...

At the end of September 2013 I will be attempting to swim 1900m swim in the 11 Acre Lake at Stowe House, followed by a run up to, and through, Stowe School to transition to the 90km cycle, passing the famous Silverstone Circuit three times...

So I start trawling the Internet for a personal trainer. After hitting the phone I find a local candidate and meet him in the pub to talk about my plan to complete a triathlon. Whilst he did seem supportive I am sure he was trying to contai...

I stayed at The Swans Hotel again. Family room, and we had the kids tucked up in bed by 8, with me following suit 30 mins later. Kit all laid out and ready in the bathroom. Eye mask and ear plugs! Alarm set for 4:15am and a breakfas...

So had a couple of weeks tapering for Ironman Melbourne, then had 2 weeks off afterwards for recovery, and then had a week's snowboarding in Val Thorens (yeah, hard life I know), where I planned to kick start the training. So rather than t...

So I've finally done it..... After months of the idea niggling at me I finally signed up for my first Ironman tri. It was a big decision. I had been thinking it over seriously since I completed my first middle distance tri in June- the gr...

This needs to be a long report. It was a long race. Challenge Roth 2013. Billed as my A race of the year, and an extravagant present (to myself) for my 40th birthday, it almost feels anticlimactic now in the heat of summer. A season over...

I found it hard to write up my experience of Ironman and Diabetes in less than a page and I appreciate that my blog is quite long. For this reason I have split the following into several bite size chunks and hope you will read some or even...

If you're like most athletes, I'd guess you're keen to experience regular improvement in your endurance, speed and enjoyment of training. So I was wondering...do you keep a training log? It's a widely accepted fact that keeping a...

Who am I? Hello everyone! I thought I'd start my blog with a brief introduction of who I am, where I'm from and all the boring details. So, my name is Akhil Viz and I am originally from Gibraltar. For those of you who do not know whe...

Just a quick recap for those who have missed my previous blogs. I started my journey in August 2011 with the stated aim to become a triathlete. Along the way I wanted to raise cash for Alzheimer's Research so I decided that a half iron dis...

With Christmas 2011 out of the way, I sit down with the PT and we agree that a 10km run would be a good first target for the year as opposed to a full on triathlon. Whilst I am super-keen to jump in the water etc, I need a whole lot of trai...

So the PT comes to my house twice a week and we start off slow. Do you like boxing he asks? (Apart from the OW swim start, why else would I need to tone up my right hook for a triathlon?) OK I say, and he starts teaching me how to box. This...

It's August 2011 and I have just come off the scales weighing in at an awesome 19 stone 13 pounds. OMG I need to do something about this or I won't be able to get through my own front door! Luckily being 6' 3" hides a lot of the fat, but th...

Ok..so first of all I should make it clear that I did not race Ironman 70.3 Mallorca myself. I was part of the TTS shop team support crew and was there for just 3 days to support my husband Jon, Shop mechanic Will (along with his other hal...
