Public Service Announcement: Crossfit

Firstly, don’t make new year’s resolutions. I don’t wanna blog today. I know! There I was, waxing lyrical about blogging everyday like 3 days ago, but I haven’t got anything vaguely fascinating to tell you. So why inflict this tiny corner of the tinter-web on you if there isn’t anything worth spending your time reading? My […]

My Garmin Heart

My Garmin Heart

As you know, I have a bit of a Garmin obsession. And despite my best efforts to deal with this unfortunate affliction, Santa made things worse. And he brought me another little Garmin gadget to delight my heart. Although it’s a bike Garmin, so was technically a gift for my bike, not me. I think […]

Triathlon hurts

Hello World and Fellow Triathlon peeps! I know you must have been imagining the worst: the water finally claimed me. But no!! The depths I’ve been plumbing have been the workaday chasms of the mineral working world. And those of my own psyche. Not always the most scenic, but altogether absorbing. So, the little blog-let has […]

Top 10 ways to combine work & tri training

OMG. Hello. Are you still there? It’s been so long since I last blogged that WordPress barely recognised me. It wasn’t sure it should let me into my own webpage. Luckily, I had bruises to prove who I was. Having re-entered to world of Actual Paid Employment, blogging has had to take a backseat. Because working and tri […]

Adventures on Two Wheels

When I embarked on my crazy well thought through plan to train for a triathlon, I thought I knew all the important things that you need to know about bikes. Like: they have 2 wheels there are different types, like road bikes and mountain bikes and commuter bikes and maybe some others, but who really […]

True Crime

True Crime

Hey. How’s your week going? Mine has been a little odd. Surprise…. You’d think, really, that my interactions with random acts of weirdness would have topped out on Sunday, when I witnessed the drunken port-a-loo door banger at City2South. But no! I’ve got closer to true crime than that and have had firsthand experience of […]

How to lose friends

Death by Turkey, Mystery Swimmer and a Gone Girl: it’s a wrap It’s been an eventful week. I’m not sure why I attract trouble, but I’m like a magnet. You’re lucky I don’t have time to write it all down, because you’d be bombarded with a constant stream of disaster posts from me… (Actually, that’s […]

Mad Dogs and Englishwomen

This post may be being brought to you from the after life. I know, exciting! And it’s not even Friday the 13th or Halloween. In case you’re wondering, it feels a lot like the before life, but with more stillness. I’ve written a farewell email to my husband (who hasn’t responded, by the way, so […]

On Track to Scary New Heights

On Track to Scary New Heights

So rather than bore you with more tales of narrowly avoided drowning, (I have had two more episodes with improved levels of buoyancy – aided by buoyancy aids, but still – progress). It might seem that swimming has become the major focus of my blog, and it’s fair to say, I do obsess about it more than […]

Swimming without Confidence

Swimming without Confidence

I loved swimming when I was a kid. In fact, I think I secretly thought I was the next best thing to a mermaid. I say the “next best” only because I had no particular desire to be a permanent water-dweller. I’d figured that Mcvities’ Chocolate Digestives** would get soggy from too much exposure to […]
