Garmin Fenix 3 v6.50 – New Features for Free

I know it’s only a watch, but I love my Garmin Fenix 3, and even more so now that I have a Fenix 3 v6.50 . It looks good, it does pretty much everything I want it to, it has more features than you can shake a stick at and I still can’t quite get...

TrainerRoad workout Goddard – A 2nd Attempt

I’ve just had a second attempt at the TrainerRoad workout Goddard. I tried this last week and couldn’t quite decide if I was having a slow recovery from illness or was just being lazy. I didn’t manage to finish the whole of the  workout last week. I cut out the last round of spin ups and then didn’t...

Back to Basics with the Triathlon Training Plan

It’s back to basics this week with my triathlon training plan, thanks to a bout of illness. A nasty cold, chest infection, man-flu, lurgy, whatever you want to call it, I had it and it wasn’t much fun. I obviously stopped training as soon as it developed fully and then left it for just over...

Ultimate Turbo Trainer Set Up, Gadgets, Software and Workflow

I’m quite pleased with my turbo trainer set up, the software I use with it, the ‘workflow’ I have to record everything and the gadgets that I use to make this happen. I’ve mentioned many of them here in passing, but thought I’d write a post about the whole kit and caboodle. What I use, how it...

Draft legal Age-Group Racing The ETU have announced that World Championship Triathlon events for age-group athletes are going to be draft legal. In the past, drafting in age-group events has been cheating, but that is all due to change so it’s time to start thinking about draft legal age-group racing.

FTP and MAF Tests – Gradual Improvements

Training had been going well for the past couple of months. As I posted a few weeks ago, I felt as though I was getting back in the groove and had been colouring in my training diary with a sea of green as I ticked off and completed workouts as scheduled. It’s all been mainly MAF zone...

The Road to Recovery – Getting in the Groove

After what has been a fairly disappointing year triathlon-wise for me, I finally feel as though I’m on the road to recovery and getting back in the groove. A plantar fasciitis injury after the first race of the year way back in April pretty much put me out of action for the whole race season....

2016 Race Plans

2015 wasn’t great for me from a Triathlon point of view. A plantar fasciitis injury in the first race of the season put me out of action for the rest of it. I did manage to compete in the British Champs a month later and qualified for the 2016 European Champs in the process, but...
