IM France (24.07.18)

Ironman France was something of a bucket-list race for me. The course has changed since the original 1982 Nice Triathlon (won 10x by Mark Allen) but originally the event was THE race in the calendar alongside Kona in terms of stature and prestige. Races like Nice exist and continue over the years because of the passion that people have for the sport and I wanted to experience the event for myself.

IM Copenhagen & 70.3 Weymouth (17.09.17)

A quick recap on Copenhagen since I didn't blog about that at the time, then onto the in's and out's of the race in Weymouth. A wonderfully British place to race with beach-huts, bunting and paddle boats, and it was great to be back racing on UK soil after a 7year absence. Read on for an update on the weekend's weather and condition of the Dorset hedgerows...

70.3 Gdynia (09.08.17)

Another month, another 2nd place and another blog. While I say 'another 2nd place' it is in fact my first ever 70.3 podium - how about that! Five weeks on from IM Austria and I'm happy that I'm finally seeing some progress in fitness. A smooth recovery from racing in Klagenfurt, the accumulation of races, a few higher intensity sessions in the interim and my body seems to be responding in the appropriate fashion by getting stronger and faster - Hurrah! In other news I've qualified for Kona...

IM Austria (05.07.17)

11 weeks, 2xIM, 3x70.3 and 1x Oly distance races. It's been a very busy and thouroughly enjoyable 3 months of training and racing in Europe. IM Austria was another step in the right direction of getting stronger and faster through the season and it was a truly memorable experience in terms of racing the Pewag Team's 'home' race. Grab a cupper & a snack, I've got a lot to say about Austria!

IM Lanzarote (31.05.17)

A podium finish - yay! A big thanks to everyone who is supportive of my triathlon endeavours. Seeing me finish 6th or 9th leaves some wondering how I'm doing... rest assured I'm in a good place and I know that there is genuine and personal support there regardless of whether I win, lose, or am 1st loser ;) The race you say? I think that it was about a B/B+ kind of performance. A moderate swim, a less than moderate bike, and the run managed to be the redeeming feature...

Challenge Lisboa Half (08.05.17)

Race #3 was Challenge half Lisboa and I felt like there were some signs of fitness returning, mostly on the bike. I finished 6th which is sort of neither here nor there really compared to where I'd expect or like to be when fit-fit, but that's not where I am right now, so I'll not be beating myself up about that. I've had a chat with the ego, and she's adjusted accordingly...
