Red Flagged Sessions 1

And the latest injury is…

There’s always something isn’t there. The latest injury is barely an injury at all, but it’s still preventing me from doing much training. Coming Back from an Achilles Injury I hadn’t been able to run for a couple of month thanks to an achilles injury. Rest was the name of the game for my achilles...

Axmouth to Lyme Regis Undercliffs Coast Path Run

I had a bit of a change to my usual Wales Coast Path Run this week. We were down on the South Coast so that Anna could attend a River Cottage HQ cheese-making course that I’d bought her for her birthday. So, while she was at that all day on Sunday I decided to run along the coast...

AC Joint Arthritis 2

Shoulder Injury Diagnosis – Old Before My Time

MRI Scan Results I’ve finally had the results back from the MRI scan on my shoulder and a diagnosis. Essentially there’s some fairly extensive arthritis of my acromioclavicular (AC) joint. If you remember back to the New Year when my shoulder pain first occurred then I thought at the time that it was an AC joint issue....

Fishguard Half Race Simulation 1

Race Simulation

My training for the upcoming Ocean Lava Half-Ironman distance triathlon has been going from bad to worse. In fact as mentioned previously I haven’t really been ‘training’ this year, just exercising. I’ve had a shoulder injury so no swimming. I’ve had achilles problems which has stopped me running a little. Then last week I had some...

Windsurfing – Back on Board

Those of you who knew me a few years ago won’t quite believe this, but it has been ages (literally months) since I’ve been windsurfing. So long in fact that I don’t want to look it up to see how long ago it was! This may not seem unusual to some people, but considering the...

A Change is as Good as a Rest

For some reason we’ve all been exhausted for the last couple of weeks. Anna is tired, Morgan is tired and even I’m staying in bed until 6am! My training has been terrible as a result too. I took it easy while I was ill a couple of weeks ago but just haven’t been able to...

Higher Intensity 1

Upping the Intensity

After months of Base level training over the winter, it’s time to gradually start upping the intensity a little. Nothing too mad yet, just some harder, shorter intervals on the bike and some tempo runs rather than the usual low heart rate MAF zone runs. Sick Bucket Needed! Monday saw the first sunny day for...
