Juneathon ’18 day 2 – tapering

Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Sunday is my triathlon at Blenheim, and I thought it would be daft to try to do too much. So instead I’ve been rushing around getting ready, managing about 10K steps. I did, however, have a quick outing on the bike: my 10yo was DESPERATE to have a […]

Juneathon day 11: tri-envy

It was spectating at Blenheim that did it. Watching people jumping into the lake, swimming, cycling, running … winning.

Olympic tickets: families of 5 need not apply!

We had a lovely family outing on Saturday, to see the Women’s Olympic Triathlon at Hyde Park. It seemed like a natural choice, after all the work that went into training for the Blenheim Triathlon, earlier in the year. Then, having got a taste for it and fired up by the genuinely awesome (an over-used […]
