Duxford Dash 10k

It’s already September and feels like I have not written a little race report in ages… Mostly because I haven’t! In fact, apart from racing at Duxford on foot today, the only other event for me so far in 2020 has been a TT on my bicycle hosted by BRCC. With all the new COViD […]

BRCC 10mile TT

Last year I started to get a little lax in writing up race reports (or more accurately my mis-adventures getting in the way of people that know what they are doing!). This year, as we all know, looks VERY grim on the racing front. So I feel very lucky to have at least managed one […]

Pitsford 10k

A fresh Sunday morning in Northamptonshire! And our running with my running club Olney Runners. The club organised a 10k race (basically one lap of the reservoir) for club members, their friends & family. But this year also opened it up to other local running clubs. What makes this such event is that all proceeds, […]

3 of 6 London Triathlon – Lesson Learned

As I sat at the ExCel eating a handful of dry muesli cereal post race (don’t ask… I surpsased myself today), I felt decidedly flat and uninspired. Surprisingly not because of the “Muesli Episode” but due to what I felt was a bloody poor performance in todays race. My worst case consolation prize (bronze) goal […]

2 of 6 Centurion Triathlon – battling on.

The Centurion Triathlon is a non-standard distance event offering either 100 km or 100 mile races. Originally I entered the 100m as a ‘test’ event before Alpe D’Huez, but as that is now scrapped I decided to be a wimp and changed distance to 100 km. Given the weather, this turned out to have been […]

1 of 6 Blenheim Tri – reflecting

My opening race of the season, first of six this season, and one that I had hoped to participate in last year, but due to injury had to drop out. Pleasingly this year, despite the wrist problem, I felt on good form and took the drive over to Oxfordshire…
