Quad Camp Day 6

That’s good news, I think I had a good nights sleep last night. I went to bed at around 10:30 after reading for a while. I don’t remember lying there trying to get to sleep as usual, and the next thing I know, I’m getting up and it 5am. I’m not usually very good at...

Quad Camp Day 5

Another glorious day at Llyn Gwynant. I didn’t manage to sleep at all but that’s nothing unusual. I therefore busied myself in the morning with some washing up and then breakfast in the van.

Quadrathlon Camp Day 1

You’d be forgiven for thinking that after a day away racing in the Fishguard Bay Ocean Race I’d be happy to have a slow start the next day. Try telling by body that. Instead it was up at 5am and raring to go. I didn’t want to leave too early for North Wales though. I...
