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!

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 Build Up (22.07.11)

I have raced every week since my last blog, all of these have been "training races" so have not been tapered for, but I have incorporated them into my training week so that they complement the key swim, bike, run and core/ stretch sessions. First off, I threw myself last minute into an Olympic distance tri at Dorney Lake, this was followed by an Open Water Swim at Henley and then I rounded off with Wycombe half marathon last weekend.

Stories behind my sponsors part 3: Mailsports Swimwear Specialist (11.04.11)

Sometimes, you never know where you might meet someone. I don’t mean to sound like a citation out of women’s weekly. But it’s true, you can meet people anywhere and if you are a tri-athlete, the chances are you are going to meet people at the pool, the bike shop, running routes or races, the gym, sportives, timetrials etc. Alan (the manager of Mailsports) and I met at our local pool one Sunday evening...

Wokingham 1/2 and TCR Show (14.02.11)

Busy weekend!Well, not quite correct I suppose, most of Saturday was spent having a clear out, listing stuff on e-bay and choosing paint for the living room - hardly taxing! Slightly more interesting and fun though was my first "race" of the season at Wokingham Half Marathon and a trip to Sandown Park afterward to the Triathlon, Cycling, Running Show....
