A June update

  I meant to blog after Oceanside. And then I meant to blog before St George 70.3. And then I meant to blog after St George. I am full of good blogging intentions even if I do not follow through! Life has been busy since I posted back in February and much of that is just […]

Back to training

Archie turned five months earlier this week and I am into my second month of structured training. Before Christmas I was into a pretty good routine but it was somewhat simpler to get training in as Brett was on paternity leave for most of December. Over the Christmas period we were in the UK and […]

Don’t call it a comeback!

I’ve just picked up my Cervelo P5 from Jason Losey (Jason has looked after my bikes the past 4 years – he’s amazing.). I commented to Jason, “Things must be getting serious!”. My P5 is looking as good as new and ready for the road and, where it leads, I must follow! For the first […]

A pregnant pause

It’s safe to say that life has changed quite a lot since my last blog. My last update came in January fresh from my return from Chile and the Cayman Island: two half ironman in two weeks and I was setting out my race plans for 2016. Soon after coming home to Boulder we learnt […]

Challenge Bahrain and other stuff

There was a whole lot of hype around Challenge Bahrain and the event lived up to expectations.  The race organisers put a lot of effort into gathering quality fields on both the men’s and women’s field and there was some fast and close racing.  We were treated very well and it sounds like the age […]

Boulder 70.3

I’m a little late but here it is – a few words about my Boulder 70.3 race last week – my 2nd 2nd in two weeks.   This was the first time I’ve done the “dirty double” although I can see that the DD is old news:  I know at least two people who went […]

Kansas 70.3

This is just a quickie but I did have to post something as Kansas 70.3 was my race completed of 2014.  Yehaw! to that! This was my second time doing Kansas 70.3 and I had nothing but good memories about the event from 2012.  A well organised event, a beautifully challenging course, heat and well, […]

2014: First quarter

EIGHT DAYS till my 2014 race season kicks off.  I’m going to be back in Texas – this time racing Galveston 70.3 on 6 April.  I’ve had three months  of reasonably consistent training:  so it’s time to get started. The first race of the season is always a funny one.  Training fit and racing fit […]

On your marks…

Since my last update I have pretty much had my head down training. Not so unusual and pretty much the story with every triathlete out there. In past years I have typically kicked off my season with a bang: Abu Dhabi triathlon followed by an early season Ironman. Not so this year. While it was […]
