IM Mallorca 2016 – Race Report

Ironman Mallorca 2016 – A tale of two races. After a great result at IMUK I reminded myself that a consistent build up and training was the key to a solid race, with this in mind I settled into the week before Mallorca with a different mindset. The buzz after UK was amazing, a few were baffled that I declined my Kona slot but my year had been mapped out long before IMUK and the aim was just to win the AG, then aim for Mallorca, whatever happened, I was at peace with the journey I had chosen to take for 2016. At the start of the year I knew I had to have the best race of...

Ironman UK 2016 – Race Report

Ironman UK 2016 – Race Report Preamble IMUK is my home race, the support grows each year, since 2009 I have seen this change in such a great way, the race is embraced fully.

Being a home race and a local athlete there is a lot of support and this makes it a special place to compete. This year I was lucky enough to get a place through my...

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...
