Training Review Week 30/09/13

Another attempt to hit the whole week was ruined by work early in the week. Good end to the week with another 3 hour ride in the bank, felt better but failed to do any running, I am hopeful this will come together once I sort out my weekly format. I am trying a few other things and changing my day away in Northampton so that will mean a little  bit more...

Training Review Week 23/09/13

Green are the completed sessions to within 10% of planned times. As you can see I trained on the Monday but doing this with a sore throat didn’t go as well for me for the rest of the week. By Tuesday I was completely bunged up and suffering the usual...

Training, Plans and IM Copenhagen 2014...

Welcome to the start of a year of training in the hope of PB’ing at IM Copenhagen in August 2014. It will be a long process (about a year really 🙂 ) but one I hope to improve gradually and stay injury free, make sure I get quality time with the family and balance a reasonably hectic job. This is also the first time I have been self coached for around 6 or so years, after Kona 2009 I decided to have a break and my long time coach Lawrence Oldershaw and I parted company while I took a year off with the family in 2010. Then in 2011 I decided to come back to training and started...
