LA to Stirling to Kent

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

I won’t try to make any excuses for the lack of blog posts … what with spending the weekend in Los Angeles for the Trek Speed Concept lauch and trying my best to go some rounds with Mr Jetlag back home here in Stirling it’s been an interesting but fun few days. I’m all set now for […]

LA + back (in a weekend!)

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Well, this is certainly going to be a busy few days for me ahead! Tomorrow morning I am on the red eye out of Edinburgh airport (ash clouds dependant) to LA via Paris. It’s exciting – I am going over to LA to meet up with the Trek/K Swiss team for the official launch of […]

Where has the week gone?

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I’m not sure on this, but it seems only yesterday I was stressing about delay-edness in Florida. It wasn’t however, it was over a week ago. Time really does fly when you are having fun, although the cold tends to dull it oh so slightly … I did however have a wry smile on reading […]

Nearly time to race

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

So the bike is geared up and the bag is ready and waiting to go. All that’s left is to get to bed and wait for the 3.30 alarm! I’m excited to be racing again, as I said yesterday, it’s one of those iconic races to tick off.

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 […]

Abu Dhabi Triathlon video

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Another funky little Abu Dhabi race video compilation from Wattie who was out there helping us Trek/K Swiss athletes out – many thanks buddy, especially for changing my flat in T1 40 minutes prior to the gun firing. I wasn’t flapping at all. Promise!?!

Pre Abu Dhabi!

Friday, March 12th, 2010

It’s nearly race day … and boy has it been a few days of hanging around an waiting for it to arrive. I’m not much of a fan of emersing yourself amongst you’re rivals and competitors for days on end before an event, but there wasn’t much choice for this race. It was a  long […]

The last couple days

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Sorry there has been little updates of late … either time seems to have flown by or I simply haven’t had much spare time to sit down and share what I’ve been up to. Well, I’ll try and stick to that argument for now 😉  Some bits and pieces of what I have been doing […]

Final day at camp

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Riding out along the Pacific Coast Highway with the guys yesterday. Today everything got wrapped up – quite literally, as my new Madonne road bike has been boxed up and will be winging its way to Stirling without me having ridden it yet. It has been a cracking few days; leaving me super amped and […]

Trek/K-Swiss team camp

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

New team, new kit, new bikes and jet lag. – It’s all go here in Santa Monica, north of LA, at the K Swiss headquarters. Lots of fun stuff happening, a little bit of training and a tonne of learning and some terrible hair styling all in the name of team building……??
