Ironman World Championships Race Report – Part 2...

Kona 2019 – World Ironman Championships – continued So with the swim and transition 1 done and dusted its time to get out on the bike. If you missed part 1 – have a catch up here. Bike The bike route starts off pretty technical, 7 miles around town up and down Palani Hill before we get out onto the Queen K highway, once I exited the chute it was a short climb up the lower part of Palani and turn left for the first town loop, I got into my aero position early to make sure everything was working. Immediately I was in panic mode, my gears weren’t working, or more specifically my rear derailleur wasn’t working...

Ironman World Championships Race Report – Part 1...

Kona 2019 – World Ironman Championships The road to Kona has been well planned in our house for the last few years but as explained below the best laid plans don’t always conform to your expectations when racing an Ironman. In 2016 we decided as a family (yes, really !) that if I could qualify for the 2017 championships we would go for Kelly’s 40th birthday year. The plan was to combine the race in Hawaii and then spend time in Disney afterwards and make it a holiday to remember. I chose Mallorca as the qualification race, after doing so well in UK earlier in the year I was confident, I had also turned down a slot at...

Ironman Barcelona 2015 – Race Report...

IM Barcelona 2015 – Race Report Preamble Just over 12 months have passed since IM Copenhagen, it wasn’t the best executed ironman race I had done and I went there to post a time, so in 2015 I wanted to change a few things and race faster and smarter. Picking the right course was the first part, IM Barcelona ticked the box, it wasn’t one I had done, wasn’t full and was supposed to be fast. I also decided after Copenhagen to add a ‘tag’ or badge to my RoadID bracelet, this had my PB time of 9:42 from 2008. When I crossed the line in Copenhagen 1 minute outside my PB I was gutted so I decided...

Mid season Update

After a lovely weekend in Euro Disney its back to the training and with the countdown to Wales hitting 5 weeks and moving swiftly downwards its a serious part of the season. Euro Disney was a great distraction from work and training and was for Kellys birthday, If there is anything I have learned over the last few years, the partner buy in is the most important part of your season and it doesn’t stop just because they said yes to you entering and training for the race, so a bit of lactic pain after a few days off is the least I could put up with. Ironman Wales is on the 11th September and this provides me...

Computrainer – The first 20 weeks...

Firstly apologies for my tardiness, I got married 2 weeks ago abroad and its been a lovely few weeks off but my final CP20 test was done just before we went and I haven’t had time to blog. RECAP In December I won a competition to be the amateur face of ‘Computrainer’ in the UK, the competition was also run in the US and my counterpart across the pond is Maria Simone, her blog is here, she is more of a blogger than I will ever be but I am trying not to be completely overshadowed lol.!Since then I have using the Computrainer to help improve my cycling (and ultimately triathlon) and then blog about it. My main...
