New Sneaks. Final few Days.

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

It’s always nice to have some new bits of gear, and since I started to race for the new team I’ve been sent exciting parcels from California on a regular basis. On that note I got a email from Ben over at K-Swiss a couple days back to let me know the new ‘team shoes’ are ready for action […]

The Long Run

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

I know this appears to be a recurring theme (my apologising for a lack of blog entries!) but here I am doing it again. I honestly can’t believe how quickly the past 3 weeks have flown by since heading down to Wimbleball, but flown by they certainly have. However, I have been getting back into a good […]

Back to the template

I’ve had a few days of time off plus a few more days easing back into training and as such Wimbleball has drifted off into the distant past already.

I pretty much eat, sleep and breathe triathlon and therefore would happily describe myself as a tri-geek. Or perhaps as a ‘student’ of the sport? Either way I […]

It’s a deep burn

Costa Del El Shire

Dunnung Glen and Gleneagles loop. – 83k, 2hrs 45mins. It happens a lot less often than I would like, but every now and then I find myself saying “who needs warm weather training in far flung places all over the place when it can be like this in Stirling?”. Today (and the past few days) has been awesome…. I even […]

I’m struggling slightly….

….to think of anything meaningful to blog about. However I will push on regardless and see where it goes.
