Latest Scandal (18.02.13)

How lucky am I? It is two days until I climb aboard the boat bound for Melbourne. Ok, so it is a plane, the first of three that will see me arrive on Antipodean shores by Friday. Leaving the -5* and snow forecast here in France for a roasty toasty (+)28* sunshine. I tell you, it's been a while since I rode my bike outside and I can't wait!

Cross Country Season (28.01.13)

Eeesh! It's been a while since I raced anything as short as a 5k and it's been even longer since I raced anything remotely resembling a cross country. High School memories of being frigidly cold and of course it was raining, it was Wales. And now I find myself back wearing spikes for the first time in 20 years...

February Happenings (23.02.12)

Here we are, pancake day has been and gone and we are fast (sorry, no pun intended) heading for Easter. For me, January and February have been all about consistent training and solid sessions. This was all going wonderfully well until the weekend just gone, where we'd lined up to run a cheeky half marathon.

Christmas Week (19.12.11)

Jingly songs and carols on the radio, we've had some snow, sprouts and satsumas feature in the grocery basket and there is a Norway spruce in the living room. It must be CHRISTMAS! Woo-hoo!

What's going on? (16.11.11)

Crikey, it has been nearly a month since the last blog. What on EARTH have I been doing with the time - it has just flown by. End of season or in the quiet week after a race I always have a long list of great intentions of "getting stuff done", however I think that I am quite possibly the worlds best at not ever getting to the bottom of that list. It has been quite a busy month. Lots of things still on the list, but a number of exciting critical developments and changes to my business of being a triathlete.

Antwerp Race Report (25.07.11)

A rather factual and number crunching race report with some reflections thrown in for good measure. Photos to follow.

Racing the winter steed at Dambuster Duathlon (19.03.11)

This weekend (19.03.11) I travelled up to Leicestershire to do the Dambuster Duathlon, a 10k (actually 9.7km) Run - 42k Bike - 5k Run around Rutland Water. I finished the race in 2:06:18, 1st place female overall. Woo-Hoo! Having had a bit of a mechanical set back with my Cervelo last week, I'd removed the lights and mudguard from my winter training bike and clipped on some aero bars. To win on it just added a sprinkling of sugar to the day!

Stories Behind my Sponsors Part 2: Hammer Nutrition (15.03.11)

It is probably safe to say that most ironman athletes are careful to the point of being fastidious about their nutrition. Yet with so many products on the market - how do we find the one that suits us best? The sheer volume and intensity of training demands that we look after our bodies if we want to get the most out of our sessions and perform under race conditions. However a comment that I’m sure many athletes will be familiar with is “well surely with all the training you do, you can eat what you like”?
