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
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.
That needs to be put in context, and the smiley one doesn’t need to go searching around in her cupboard looking for her race shorts.

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
As the football transfer window grows nearer to a close and before all sorts of frantic panic moves take place, I thought I would place some words down for my old squadies who are Manchester tragics; and for poor old Stephen Bayliss, as his beloved Crystal palace finally made it up, and then because of a brilliant and underrated manager somehow stayed there, are going to fare this season.

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

What is required to swim a 20 minute 1500m?
I started swimming April 2013 from scratch (couldn’t swim 25m freestyle). Now I am swimming 1500m in 26 minutes and 400m in 6:30. How can I keep improving so that I can swim 20 minute 1500m and compete in Continental Cup draft-legal races? Continue reading

Whether its a read you enjoy, or more of a nuisance, or an indulgence on my part.
We would like to make it a better experience for you when you click on the doc web site.
Thanks for your time
