I've never been good at anything endurance related, and previously scoffed at the idea of attempting a triathlon - though I'd always wanted to complete a distance event of some sort; for the personal satisfaction of achieving it. When presented with the opportunity to take part I couldn't refuse and started training up to 5 times a week in preparation for it.

A real big thank you to the Sponsors AJBell!

I’ve had lots of questions about triathlon training and preparation from the #AskAJBell competition that we ran the other week, so I thought I’d use this post to share my answers with you all ...

How can I improve my timing when swimming? I have been doing tri’s for just over a year and am held back by my lack of swim technique and experience.

What should competitors be thinking about at this stage?

Even if you have not done any training up to this point, there is still plenty of time to improve your fitness before the AJ Bell London Triathlon in five weeks’ time.

Welcome to my blog

Thanks for visiting my blog. As this is my first post, the guys at AJ Bell suggested it would be worth doing a Q&A to reveal some background info about who I am and what qualifies me to be their ambassador! That seemed like a pretty sensible idea, so they sent me a list of questions and I got stuck in ...
