LATEST BLOG: Reflections, Lessons, and Insights from 2017

Such a great weekend of training! I took a time out from the regular triathlon routine to spend some time focusing on boxing - my second love! I really enjoy the tactics and technique of boxing, which feels like an art when you get it right! Two sessions of sparring and one of technique and my skills have improved greatly. Thanks for my first taste of sparring a southpaw Christina and good luck for your fight preparations! Thanks coach and 📷 Graeme Prowse Redlands Boxing 🥊

Post-run recovery this morning with my torture devices of choice - foam roller and trigger ball! I started to get knee pain during my run, which is likely being caused by some very tight glutes, hamstrings and ITB (iliotibial band) after the increased training volume recently. Constantly training the same muscles each day means that they get fatigued, tight, and sore, and our movement patterns start changing to compensate. This can cause pain during the regular movement (eg. ...running). By releasing the tension in the muscles with stretching, foam rolling and triggering we can help to relax them and restore normal function. It’s not always all about what you do in the training session itself, it’s also about what you do BETWEEN sessions to support your training that’s important. To learn more, check out the link below!

With the start of the new year came some new goals...fresh for 2018!
This year, I am really keen to start creating and sharing more content with the triathlon and endurance sport community (and the sports community at large!), to help athletes to get the most out of their training sessions, to optimise their training support strategies, to overcome the daily challenges of training and life, to ultimately maximise their performance on race day!
To kick things off, I have made... a free short webinar, that shows you how to overcome the 3 most common mistakes triathletes make in training, in order to start maximising your performane and kick goals at your next race.
Don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for more content coming soon!

This is such a great initiative from my good friends Sarah Crealy and Joey Cahill, triathlon buddies from way back! Cancer has affected their lives significantly, and I'm sure it's touched your life in some way too.
To raise awareness about early detection and getting regular checks, they're taking on an impressive challenge - Cairns Ironman 2018! All they need is 226 people to get checked (1 for every km) and they're in! They don't want your money, they want to save lives. So go for your check-up and then register it on their Facebook page! Please share and help raise awareness!
