I was supposed to be doing triathlons for fun, but somehow ended up competing in various British, European and World Championship age-group events for Team-GB and managed to become European Age-Group Champion in 2013. Posts about my training and races will be in this category.

Quadrathlon Equations – Trophy Series 1

Shrewsbury Quadrathlon – Race Report

At last, after my first ever Quadrathlon at Brigg back in May, I was toeing the line again at the Shrewsbury Quadrathlon. Injury and illness had kept me from competing at a number of other events throughout the year which was a shame as I had hoped to do all of the trophy series races, but...

A Half Marathon Run

I’ve been keeping this relatively quiet, but the Half-Ironman distance triathlon that I pulled out of last year is looming fast. I pulled out last year due to my plantar fasciistis injury but my entry was deferred for a year so I’m still signed up to do it. My foot seems better but I haven’t...

Full on Friday

That was a good day, especially as it was only Friday and not even the weekend. Up early as usual after a poor nights sleep for an hour or so of work on the computer and then off for a fairly hard 70 minute run from home. It shouldn’t have been that hard as it wasn’t...
