SoCal.

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Southern California. That’s what the cool kids seem to call it anyways ….. A few days in already. Time flies. After a late arrival in Los Angeles I stayed in the airport (well, a hotel room, not a terminal bench) on Monday evening and then drove myself the couple of hours south to the San […]

UK Ironman 70.3, Wimbleball Lake

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

I’m gearing up for my major goal race of the first half of the racing season this w/e. It’s been an up and down first few months of 2009 racing for me, but I am finally feeling confident about my prospects of being able to race to my potential on Sunday morning. I’m very motivated […]

Halfway to Wildflower

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

The last few days have been pretty busy and hectic, what with getting back from Florida later on Tuesday night than i had hoped (i was delay-ed in Dallas…) which threw me all off kilter in my schedule. Not that i had a terribly lock tight schedule, but I did have to be at LAX […]

A trip to the San Diego Zoo

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

We had raced, well, Will had, and I had given it a good go till mile 1 on the run, so the day after the day before, was for the zoo! San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park, is famous for being one of the best in the world. We thought we should check it and its […]

Back on track. I think.

Monday, March 30th, 2009

My first full week of training here in California is done. It’s been a busy week. But I think I have got back on track in terms of swim, bike and crucially, run. I have been struggling with a niggly pain in my lower leg for a few weeks now – ‘I am running, I’m not […]

Ta da!!

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

I don’t want to go on and on about this, but me getting these new bikes is way cool!! So, I am showing you MORE pictures of them – now as the finished articles. Well, not quite, since I need some tubs to go on the race wheels for the TT bike….but i’m not racing […]

I’m really pleased to say that I have just signed with Profile Design for this 2009 season. I will be racing in their wetsuits and – for the warmer swims – speed suits. I will also be using their aerobottles, bottles cages and other hydration components.

Compression by SLS3

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

I have been making very good use of my compression socks during the past 10 days….. which is exactly how long I have had some out here in Stellenbosch, since I forgot to bring my own when I flew initially.

Florida bound

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

I’m all packed and I’m yet again on the move; to St Petersburg, Florida. There is just one week left till the Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3 in Clearwater, and I am heading over to the same great homestay I enjoyed last time with Carolyn, and also Julie Dibens. We were there in Arpil […]

Today I mostly…… visited Encinitas

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Encinitas is down by the beach, about 15 miles away from Escondido – where i stay whilst here in CA. It’s a pretty little town, quaint almost, and for me it typifies everything that California seemed to mean as depicted by the vision (tv) whilst growing up. And what better a depiction of Californian life […]

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Where is the pontoon going? I last raced at the Bala triathlon in 2001, as a not-so-fast-junior. Yesterday I raced as a not-so-fast-senior!
