My 220km cycle adventure / ordeal The 24th of November 2015 was a significant day in my triathlon journey. With a half iron distance event lined up for next year, I wanted to have undertaken all of the individual elements before the close of the year, in preparation for having to do them all in one go. Several days a week I exceed the 1.9km...

Exclusive interview with Daniela Ryf, the 2015 Ironman World Champion On the 10th of October this year, I settled on the sofa to watch the Ironman World Championships 2015, broadcast live from Kona, Hawaii.

A healthy breakfast yoghurt with a kick! For many years, one of my favourite breakfasts has been natural yoghurts, mixed seeds and fruit. To begin with that fruit was blueberry. I then went on to experiment with other fruits such as strawberries, pineapple and mango. The latter evolved into this simple, delicious and healthy breakfast. The chilli oil is optional, but you will find that...

A list of all of the UK / GB Triathletes Competing in Kona Results: In the grueling heat, top athletes from all over the world converged on Kona Hawaii for the 2015 Ironman Word Championships.

A nutritious breakfast for triathletes This is a great and well balanced granola recipe that is much more nutritious than a shop bought alternative. It can also be personalised so you don’t have to pick out the gross currents! Shop bought muesli that has no added sugar can, in my option taste like dust. The tastier versions can be a little sparse on the really good...

The end of the beginning I was positioned in corner of the bathroom, hunched over in the foetal position with my forehead resting on the floor. Eyes winced, teeth clenched, I drew my arms in tightly around my midriff. I was wearing a dressing gown, now more sweat than fabric; draped over my back like a cape, I regularly embraced myself within it or took...
