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 […]

All go …

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

So I am virtually packed up ready to go tomorrow morning – it has been a wee while since I embarked upon a trip, so I am looking forward to arriving in Tampa tomorrow evening to get ready for St Croix next Sunday. – Fairly lengthy travel, but thats ok – better than no travel at all, […]

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 […]

Scottish Duathlon Champs 2009; Shire

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

The last week has flown by, hence the lack of posts since I departed the South of Spain. – I got home last Wednesday and spent a nice few days back home. Those days included some good swims sets with the squad, a couple bikes rides wearing shorts(!) and a couple trips to Physiofocus to […]

Aguilas day 3

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

For lack of anything better to add, here is a picture of the coast as I rode today. I sneakily avoided the Spanish downpour that pelted down from 12-2pm (siesta time anyway) and got out once the roads dried …. it doesn’t work like that in Scotland, I’ll tell you that for free!

Costa Del El Shire

Monday, June 1st, 2009

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….

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

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

Adaptation

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

I got up this morning for swimming to a view out of the window which showed white white white; the snow was here once again. I didn’t get out on the mtb, and neither did Blair (today), but he did the other week when the snow was last on the ground. – A bit of a difference to the […]

Winding back up for South Africa

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

My downtime has all but reached its endpoint; I have been home in Stirling for nearly 2 weeks and in 2 more days I will boarding a BA flight to Cape Town, so that I can spend the next 3 months in Stellenbosch… I’m a lucky person.

Today us at TotalRacingInt.com had ourselves a few photies on the shore of loch Venachar, not so far away from Stirling. It was sunny, for the most part, but oh so brrrr. Autumn is here for sure.

The Lurgy

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

It happens every now and then. Usually I expect it to happen after a flight, one of those (usually long haul) where the coughing fit is sat in the seat directly behind or in front. But more often than not it just creeps up, as it did this time. Although I expect the attempt at […]

Getting ready for Ironman 70.3 World Championships …. soon!

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

Alhough it is nearing the end of the season for many folk, i’m still looking further down the road. The 2008 Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3 in Clearwater, Florida is a mere 8 weeks away, and it is a big goal or mine.
