With the dust just about settled on another London Marathon, its an apt time to reflect on what still remains one of my favourite races from the many races I competed in. And what a race it was this year for all competitors, including my two S4F Squad Members Gerry and Ali. As their coach […]
First of all many thanks to our sponsors: Precision hydration and Naked Runner. Some great racing by the squad at the Active Training World Ashridge Duathlon today. Over a tough 10k/44k/5k course everyone finished strongly. Early season races are always tough but great to get the season started. Plenty of hard work to come before […]
It’s party time at the moment as everyone moves from Christmas partying to new years eve partying. It’s also that time of year when people set themselves new year’s resolutions with plans to achieve amazing things. Unfortunately most of these new years resolutions survive as long as the many balloons that we find ourselves dancing […]

The GB Half Ironman Championships it was an early start. The alarm went off at 0330. First thought was ‘how fresh do I feel’ from the devil on my shoulder, counteracted by a more calming ‘give yourself a chance to wake up!’. Normal routine, downstairs, cup of tea! It was still pitch dark! I could […]
As the 2016 Triathlon race season enters its last few weeks, it’s been another great week for the Squad with some fast and fun racing. First off, Gerry Frewin’s race season just got better and better culminating in a very fast 4:42 at the highly competitive Vitruvian middles distance race. Conditions were pretty difficult with […]
I find myself on a crowded commuter train at 5:30 in the morning with tears streaming down my face reading from my lap top. Ok let’s back track a few weeks to understand what’s led me here. The Rio Olympics were a strange affair for me the first Olympics I can remember that I felt […]
