Slowtwitch interview

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Thanks to Herbert at Slowtwitch for rigging up an update on me and te start of this season. Always great to get some coverage on this cracking website. – Have a look at the interview here. Meanwhile I’m leaving my wonderful homestay with Carolyn & Tim in St Petersburg to get on the plane home …. A couple of days late due […]

St Croix Ironman 70.3

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

5th place, 4.13.07 I can safely say that was the hardest racing experience I have had for some considerable time, if not ever! What a course – choppy (but beautiful) sea swim, hilly and technical bike capped off with a brutally hot and energy sapping run route. I believe I told myself time after time […]

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 […]

T minus 3 days

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Clearwater is fast approaching – its Tuesday night here in Florida as I write, and yet it seems much closer to kick off. I’m starting to get that simultaneously ‘excited and nervous’ feeling, which is good and bad. – Good that i’m feeling it, but bad that there are 3 more days for it to […]

Motivation needed? Not now

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Last week when I had a wander around Lance’s bike shop here in Austin, Mellow Johnny’s, I took the below picture of this even more famous picture. I have it framed on my wall at home in fact. I see it every morning when I wake up for swimming. – Sometimes it doesn’t work I am […]

Turning the corner….

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

I haven’t been too chirpy of late on the old blogging. Not with any ‘Fraser news’ at least. The simple reason is that there hasn’t really been any news of note to report. I’ve been in Stirling, and I have been training day in day out. The news if any, has been the lack of […]

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.

St Anthony’s Triathlon 2009

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Just a quick race update from this morning here in St Petersburg – 14th place, 1:53:16. My leg didn’t hurt either (well, they collectively ‘hurt’ as a pair, but my sore spot didn’t hurt!) – and that is progress in the land-of-Fraser right now, let me tell you. (And I even outsplit the fastest girl on […]

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!

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 […]
