Off again

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

After only a couple of days here in St Petersburg and I am up and ready to leave for St Croix. It’s not even 5am yet but i wasn’t even remotely velcro’d to the bed this morning; guess I must still be jet lagged. And the good news is that my website was down yesterday […]

Trek Speed (weapon) Concept!

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

So I made it to Florida in one piece (longest and worst immigration Q’s aside) and am now safely at Carolyn’s house and in familiar homestay territory for April time. AND I had this amazing piece of kit sitting in it’s cardboard box awaiting me – of course I had barely got my ruckack on the ground […]

Today in the Shire

Friday, April 16th, 2010

I had a good day at home in Stirling today. I began the day with an easy swim which I needed since the last few days have been pretty full on training-wise. – That training was made all the easier by the stunning weather we have had this week (see blue sky below for proof) … to the […]

Florida Ironman 70.3, Disney World

Monday, May 18th, 2009

I didn’t finish today and I am not really in the mood to write an extensive report on the subject to tell the truth. It is just really frustrating right now. I was looking forward to moving another step towards full fitness, and had hoped to get myself a top 10 or better, which would’ve been […]

Notes from St Petersburg

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

To say the past week has been stressful and hectic, would be a bit of an understatement, and so updating my website took a back seat. I’ve got some stuff to write about now mind you.

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 […]

Pre – pre – race day.

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

My and Toby Jameson (my solo partner in crime out here since Julie ‘Dibs’ Dibens – or Deeeedens as they say out here – has cracked a rib and declined to join the gang this time around) got out and did a little bicycling this morning. I think I found the joke a little funnier than he […]

Travelling cross country

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

I arrived in Florida later on last night, happy to step off the plane to yet another warm climate. Spoilt … that’s what I have become!

The past few days

A swim in the sea

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

This morning I decided to skip the visit to the pool in favour of a splash in the open water. I don’t often swim in the sea – the only time I did it during the whole 3 months I was away in South Africa was to actually race. (When I say swim; I mean […]

The South African experience is drawing to a close.

The South African experience is drawing to a close. This time next week it will be ‘this way to depatures’.
