Sociable Training

I was quite sociable last week. I usually do pretty much all of my training on my own. I find it quicker to do, easier to fit into my schedule and probably more productive too. However, there’s no real focus to my training at the moment. I’m just training and racing for the fun of...

Non-Stop Sunday

Phew, that was a busy day even by my standards. Saturday was pretty busy as it goes with various garden carpentry repairs but I did get to chill with a nice big curry in the evening. Surf Ski Session Sunday started early with a Surf Ski session from Ynyslas to Borth. It was a lovely...

The January Doldrums

I’ve been trying to think of things to add to the blog over the past week or so, but we just haven’t been up to much really. I guess it’s just the January Doldrums. It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s miserable and more often than not it’s dark outside. We’re back at work, Christmas seems as...

A TrainerRoad Quadrathlon Training Plan

With 2019 well under way and a lot of Christmas excess to shed I decided it was time for a new training plan. To be fair, some of the loss of fitness over Christmas was due to being ill for a few weeks, and over-indulging didn’t help matters. The timing was OK though. I may...

Since the middle of the season my...

Welsh Cyclocross 2018 – Round 9 Talybont-on-Usk

After a week off due to a cancellation it was back to it at the weekend for more cyclocross racing. This time we were at Gilestone Farm in Talybont-on-Usk which was a new venue. I didn’t know what to expect from the course, but no doubt there would be plenty to test us. It was...

Welsh Cyclocross 2018 – Round 8 Pembrey Poppy Cross

With only a few rounds left, it feels as though the Cyclocross season is hotting up and coming to an end at the same time. A couple of cancellations mean that this weekend’s race was the 7th scoring race out of 9 races with your best 6 results to count towards the series. This weekend...

Welsh Cyclocross 2018 – Round 7 Swansea

Another good Cyclocross Race, and this time I’m pleased to say that rather than saying my race report comes from somewhere in the middle of the pack, it’s actually coming from a little closer to the pointy end. Still not at the pointy end of course – far from it in fact, but it was...
