Resurrecting the blog (01.01.17)

Strictly speaking I didn't resurrect it on the 1st of January but my sensibilities felt the need for something of a segue between April last year and present date.

I'll pick up with a summary post IM Cozumel and recent work with the Drummond Clinic.  

Metaphorical pen poised...

I've made the decision to not race at IM South Africa this coming weekend (10.04.16) but rather focus on a more extensive block of training and race later in the season.
