So as a quick follow up I completed Bala standard tri in 2hrs 40. That's a PB for me so well happy and it was made with a really strong bike. My swim is still letting me down so really going to have to work on this over the winter and if I...

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...

Boyfriend had been talking for a few months about buying a set of rollers for indoor cycle training. I’ll be honest, I was fairly sceptical. They are not cheap at £150 plus, I remain reluctant to be a high-budget-all-the-gear triat...

So another 3 months have passed and I am continuing to learn and improve. Apart from a calf strain which put me behind in my running for a few weeks, progress is continuing to be made. In a recent power test on the bike (8mins at max powe...

Following a successful year in triathlons I decided to think about what has worked and what hasn't this year and came to the conclusion that consistency has been the key. I've therefore just written a bog post on my personal weblog about t...

So I returned from a business trip in Germany late on Friday evening having indulged in all sorts of delicious fayre and a few glasses of Apfelwein (which tastes remarkably like Somerset cider) and the sum total of the weeks exercise was wa...

So it's early January and I'm pondering what to do that will make my 40th year that bit special. As a member of BadTri I am not only looking forward to a training camp in Majorca in March but also our bi-annual overseas club race in Cologn...

So another training year is about to come to an end with the Bala Olympic Triathlon this weekend being my last event. Since March training has been quite reasonable. I completed the Chester Deva Tri in 2hrs 47, did a 3 day charity ride whi...

So here I am sitting on a plane on the way back from a very relaxing and alcohol fuelled week in Spain where I didn’t even take my trainers out of the suitcase and thinking OMG I have 9 weeks tomorrow until my first half ironman! Ask ...

So another 3 months on and I'm quite happy with progress. Map my Ride tells me that I've done 77 workouts for 79 hours in total. That's slightly less than 7 hours a week which was my target and now I have 2 months to my first target race. ...

I've just written a blog post about Triathlon Training Experiments, highlighted how training for and competing in triathlons is like a constantly evolving experiment where the parameters are forever changing. Sometimes the experiment goe...

I’m not sure whether it is a good reflection or otherwise on my life and interests that the most exciting thing happening in the next month is tarmac based. There are also various versions of winter celebrations with various family gr...

I've been thinking about writing this post for a while - been mulling it over in my mind. One of the things that triggered it was a particularly difficult session on the rowing machine a week or two ago. Being a rower as well as a triathlet...

An overwhelming number of triathletes are just ordinary people like you and I. You'd never know this thanks to the print and digital media coverage of our sport. Truth be told, the only way that triathletes have been able to create a demo...

If you read my posts back in March you would know that I am trying to understand training for ectomorphs like myself. I had identified some training programmes and dietary requirements that might help me to improve both my power on the bik...

This season is turning out to be quite different to the last. In a way I feel a bit daft for being surprised, but I didn't see it coming. So it turns out that at some point in the last 6 months I seem to have got relatively happy and we...
