Training after Ironman

Training after Ironman Copenhagen, have been riding 60 min turbo, little bit tied but the shoulder is the same as before the race. I don’t take pain killers, so i can see the shoulder is not the problem. Should I go back to week 1 in your Ironman program again? Looking at how i feel now, it is plain to see I have not been fit enough to race. Will you be having a training camp in Cozumel up to Ironman? Continue reading

Chrissie Wellington doesn’t need the aggravation!

With most sports, we all live for days gone by. A twitter note that has gained some support is stating ‘I think Chrissie could run that fast if she had a go’.

What we are talking about is the Nicola Spirig marathon where in the Europeans Champs she ran a respectable marathon of 2 hours 37 minutes.

I tell you why right here. Continue reading

Racing after broken shoulder

Just did Ironman Copenhagen. Swim 1:24 ok after broken shoulder last November. The bike was great for the first 80km then bad cramps in the shoulder, but the major problem no power on the bike. So after 6 hours 50 minutes on the bike I stopped because I could see a 6-7 hr marathon on the way, and recovery from this would take many weeks. Question is should I try a half Ironman in 4 weeks? I will go to Ironman Cozumel in 12 weeks. Should i rest now or just continue training? I am using your training program.
PS. You were right when you said it was not so smart to race Ironman Copenhagen

Football transfers

Premier League transfer market


Let me apologise for our slow down with the blogs on our web site.

I can be temperamental, and have received a couple of emails, stating I should stick to triathlon with my writings, and so I thought on it and thought yes, how presumptuous of me, to think others would like to hear what I think on other subjects. Continue reading
