Tomorrow is a new day, but today is where the magic happens

“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” Anne of Green Gables – L.M. Montgomery It’s fair to say that Tuesday was a pretty rubbish day. In fact Monday wasn’t great either.Fatigue (probably a bit of stress too), and a couple of errors of judgement (thanks … More Tomorrow is a new day, but today is where the magic happens

The Challenge Mindset

“A life without challenge, a life without hardship, a life without purpose, seems pale and pointless. With challenge come perseverance and gumption. With hardship come resilience and resolve. With purpose come strength and understanding.” Terry Fallis I love a good challenge. It’s what drew me to triathlon.It’s what keeps me in triathlon.It’s what gets me … More The Challenge Mindset

Gulls

I often am asked how much of places I get to see when I travel for races and training camps. My answer is most often the ambiguous “Not as much as if I were there for holidays, but a lot more than if I wasn’t able to travel at all”. Depending on how well I … More Gulls

A little bit of belief, and a little bit of daring goes a long way

We all love working on the things we’re good at because we’re good at them and, well, it feels good! For me that’s the bike (and to a lesser degree but also the swim). I love testing myself whether smashing it up a climb, drilling a hard ergo set, or trying to roll turns and … More A little bit of belief, and a little bit of daring goes a long way

Maybe what you have is more than you know

I’m a sucker for order, complete sets, matching things. Whether it’s having a complete set of books in the same edition, to the construction of my sandwich with all the constituents placed in the correct order. I wouldn’t describe myself as ODC, maybe some people would, but one thing’s for sure, I’m a perfectionist and … More Maybe what you have is more than you know

Connection, Compassion, Self-Care (and a little bit of what’s up next)

As I sit here plotting out today’s blog post about how things have progressed over the last 5 weeks since I shared with you all about my injury and the exciting plans that now are starting to unfold, I find myself reflecting on the rut I have found myself in this week. Things are going … More Connection, Compassion, Self-Care (and a little bit of what’s up next)

Building G 3.0

If you follow me on social media, or Strava, you may have guessed from my lack of activity, and my sometimes cryptic, sometimes less cryptic comments, that I am injured, or to be more correct, now returning from injury. I’m not going to sugar coat it, it sucks. As triathletes we’re obsessive, exercise addicted creatures. … More Building G 3.0

WTS Yokohama

WTS Yokohama, once again the third round of the series, and for me my second after skipping WTS Bermuda given its proximity to the Commonwealth Games. After a heavy focus on sprint distance racing, an extended taper for the Commonwealth Games, a week off, and three short weeks to refocus and get some fitness back … More WTS Yokohama

WTS Abu Dhabi

The World Triathlon Series season opener was once again held in Abu Dhabi. Leading into the race I was feeling fit, confident, and excited to deliver on a course I knew from last years race suited my strengths.   The Abu Dhabi course is unique in that we get the opportunity to race on the … More WTS Abu Dhabi

Nepean Triathlon

Feeling relatively fresh still as the ITU season drew to a close, I decided to continue on past the World Champs and finish up the season with a couple of non-drafting races, namely Nepean Triathlon and Noosa Triathlon. The idea of having a dig at some non-drafting racing has appealed to me for a while, … More Nepean Triathlon
