Long Course Weekend: Swim

This weekend, Stuart and I headed off to Tenby for the Long Course Weekend with a couple of friends, Roelie and Sergio. Originally, I intended to train for the full weekend as a precursor to doing my first Ironman next year. Ive swim the distance before and have completed 5 marathons, but Ive only cycled [] read more »

Scilly Swim Challenge – the big day!

We’d got everything ready the night before, so just needed to get dressed and eat breakfast. I opted for porridge with protein powder (as usual), and a bottle of Osmo preload (kindly provided by ProBikeKit). The night before, Roelie and I had drunk a bottle each of Osmo preload hydration in pineapple margarita flavour. I [] read more »

Disaster has also struck I first bought a MacBook [] read more »

Salty Sea Dog Long Swim 3.8k

After getting up early to watch the Salty Sea Dog Triathlon and then doing a reasonably quick parkrun, I was feeling a little hungry by the time we had to get ready for the Salty Sea Dog Long Swim, but there was too much to do for me to think about eating. I went to [] read more »

St. Michael’s Mount Swim

Back in January, Stuart and I signed up for a 2.5km swim around St. Michaels Mount in aid of the Chestnut Appeal, a local cancer charity. We thought it would be a good step towards the Scilly Swim Challenge and also an opportunity to go home to Cornwall for the weekend. We chose this event [] read more »

Hitting new swimming targets

Last night I cycled straight to the lake after work. When I got there Stu was waiting with my swimming kit, so I got changed as quickly as possible. We headed down to the lake and I zipped up my wetsuit. Unfortunately, the rip in it is getting worse and every time I bent over, [] read more »

My longest ever swim (and a cold dip in the lake)

It has been such a busy week, so far, so I think tomorrow may be a rest day. On Monday morning, I had a cross fit session with SUTRI for the first time in a few weeks. There were only 4 of us there and Olly made it quite a relaxed session, with a lot [] read more »

Sinking not swimming…

This year I need to focus on my swimming. A month of 2015 has gone by and Ive really not achieved very much yet. If Im going to complete the Scilly Swim Challenge, Im going to need to start pushing myself soon. I have to be able to swim a mile in 40 mins (consistently), [] read more »

Final aquathlon of the season

This week has been so busy: Saturday: Lake swim followed by a run (and then a bit of cheering the junior triathletes at Lakeside) Sunday: 40k bike ride followed by a 30 minute run Monday: 1 hour of swimming with some challenging drills Tuesday: 1:06 on the turbo trainer Wednesday: 70 minutes of intervals on [] read more »

Weymouth Half – the swim (and T1)

We got up stupidly early as triathlons always start before sane people are awake. Stu made an instant porridge, whereas I ate some cold blueberry protein porridge that I had made the day before. It didnt taste especially delicious as it was so cold, but I thought it was safer to stick to tried and [] read more »

Fowey Harbour Swim 2014

Today, Stuart and I travelled to Fowey for the annual Fowey Harbour Swim. This is a non-competitive charity event that was raising money for the RNLI. We took part last year and really enjoyed it, so decided to enter again this year. Last year’s course was cross the harbour and was fairly short (advertised as [] read more »

I wasn’t last, even though there was some swimm...

Although Im still tired from last Sundays swim, I had already entered tonights aquathlon (hosted by the lovely TryTri chaps), so I figured that Id better just get on with it. We left home a bit late, and I didnt do a great job of getting myself organised. I thought that I had picked up [] read more »
