Races Back On

9th Apr, 2021

Exciting news, it looks like racing can begin again soon with the first race in May in Wales. Training in the pool can also restart on the 12th. I've enjoyed lots of cycling while the running injury is still a problem. It does seem to be gradually improving but I am a long way off my running peak at the moment. Thank you for your support over the past year .It has helped me buy new kit as I have grown another few inches.

February Training

14th Feb, 2021

I have been waiting almost 6 months for my new training bike to arrive. My first ride out on it was amazing, it felt so fast but as there has been snow and cold weather I have been on the indoor turbo. Still not swimming but hope to be back in the pool soon.

January Training

6th Jan, 2021

Things were going well until tier 4 arrived again and then another lockdown. We are back to training in our bubble for cycling and running which is still better than training on your own.

Targets- 5K run time trial keep me motivated hoping for a PB. The key thing is to stay positive, it won't be too long this time hopefully. I just hope competition this year goes ahead in some form.

Finally now lockdown is over and I can train with the dev squad in Loughborough. First session back today was three hard TT efforts which were 7km in length.

Training Camp

11th Nov, 2020

Things were going well as a EMTA camp to the Peak District went ahead. This was a chance to see all of my triathlon friends. Activities included orienteering; absailing, mountain biking and running up mam tor as well as cycling. The weather was not great but it was fantastic fun. Now with a new lockdown swimming has stopped again but at least we can still train with one other person.

October

7th Oct, 2020

September has been a good month; adapting to being back at school and training again has been hard. Swimming is still limited but at least I am managing to keep some training going. My run is still improving but I have to watch the niggles and I have learnt to listen to my body now and reduce or stop training when I need to, in order to reduce injuries.

The weather has been great this month which has allowed some nice road rides in a small group. I'm sure the next few months will be more challenging as the weather deteriorates.

Loughborough Collage

6th Sep, 2020

The first week of training in Loughbrough was very good. I am training with the Development Squad in Loughbrough which means I am getting pushed a lot as lots of the athletes are much older than me. I have only managed to swim once as there is limited spaces in the pool at the moment but when I did it was a hard swim which felt really good.

August Racing/Training

3rd Aug, 2020

Fortunately British triathlon has allowed an Intelligent Racing Day to go ahead which allows all regions to get together and practice racing but without the competition aspect. The racing format was a time trial so that there was limited over taking and so that we didn't start all at the same time. Although the day took longer as we were at intervals, it was still good to get back to racing and to see all of my mates.

Lake District

23rd Jul, 2020

The last week I have been in the Lake District training on some of the biggest hills I have ever climbed both running and cycling. I have be able to meet up with one of my friends Charlie Harding for a socially distant ride which has been good as this is the first time I've been able to ride with somebody else.

Recovering Well

5th Jun, 2020

For the last 9 months I have had knee pain in both knees which has restricted me from running. Whilst lock-down has been going on I have been doing lots more S&C work which I believe to have helped my recovery. The last week of running has been pain free which means I can now start to get some harder and longer runs in my legs to be ready for future races. open water swimming is now open and swimming socially distanced is manageable with less people in the water; at least its some swimming after 10 weeks.

Life In Lock-down

10th May, 2020

The last couple of weeks have been hard as I have been coming back from my knee injury. I have been gradually increasing my running distance over the last weeks but I have had pain in my foot whilst running which has prevented me from going running even more. I have been doing lots of S&C with the East Midlands Academy which has prevented it from being boring as it can be sometimes on your own. Cycling on the other hand has not changed much as I can still go outdoors and enjoy the sun but on the days that are a bit less sunny I go on Zwift which is really good fun as you can join races and group rides with people you wouldn't normally ride with.

April Training

9th Apr, 2020

I am coping well with the circumstances of CV-19. My swimming has been off for three weeks now but i am still doing swim band work at home to keep the muscles working. Bike training is as normal but if i want to go for a run outside and then a bike later on in the day it means i have to bike on the turbo trainer. This allows me to get some hard and fun time on the bike as i can face-time my friends whilst on the bike.

Mallorca Training Camp

6th Mar, 2020

I was lucky enough to go to Mallorca with the East Midlands and Yorkshire Triathlon Academy which aimed to give developing athletes a taste of what professional triathletes do. The week was very hard training, including 2 rides which were over 120km in length. Unfortunately, with two days left in Mallorca I crashed whilst on a ride. We where traveling at 50kmph on a straight road and I clipped the back wheel of the rider in front of me as the pace of the group slowed down. I went to hospital and got 8 stitches in my knee and had lots of road rash down my right side. This has meant I have not been able to train for 2 weeks in case it opens up again. I am now gradually getting back to training again but with the already existing knee problems, this might put me back further.

January Open Water Swim Session

7th Feb, 2020

I participated in a multi region academy open water session in Leeds which aimed to improve our swim style and practice around buoys. This was really fun and a well structure day with diving practice as well. The day was 6 hours long. Looking forward to the next training camp in Mallorca which is a week.

Injury Challenge

7th Feb, 2020

I have had a knee injury which is due to growing. I have seen a physio which says that it is common for people of my age. This has stopped me from running for 6 months but not from swimming and cycling. As I am not doing as much running i have aimed to add 2 hours of swimming a week and 2 hours of cycling on to my original training week. Its disappointing that i have not been able to run in the XC league this year but aim to be in the national team next year. Hopefully my injury will be better before the triathlon season.

Training Day

17th Dec, 2019

Really good fun spending a day at Welbeck College. We started the day with a strength and conditioning session which I found quite hard but hopefully I will get better over the winter. Then we moved in to the pool where we did drill practice and open water practice which I nearly drowned in, but fun anyway. The swim coach Chris Hine gave me some good pointers for me to improve my swimming style so hopefully that will get better as well.

Tough Week Plus Injury

6th Nov, 2019

The last few weeks have been really hard with training. I have recently seen a physio who gave me stretches to do while I try and recover. My recent growth spurt has put lots of pressure on my knees and I therefore need to be careful with my training. Luckily it s not triathlon season but this will affect my cross country training.

Hard Training Week- Off Season

6th Oct, 2019

After a short rest I am back on it training harder then ever. I have struggled with my running performance due to growing but hope to build back up to top speed by next mouth. I have been inspired after meeting Matt Bottrill (cycling record holder) whilst on holiday in France, and have been training harder than ever. I have had a bike fit from him which also helped with my performance.

Race Rapid 2-UP Tri

29th Sep, 2019

Today I have taken part in a really cool event at Mallory Park. It was a sprint distance triathlon which is the longest distance I have done ever, it was hard but fun as you have to complete the race with a partner. We came a way with the fastest time of the day and won are age group.

Tredegar Triathlon

6th Aug, 2019

On the 3rd of August I took part in an enduro Triathlon which is (swim/bike/run/swim/bike/run). This is unlike anything I have ever done before and I found it very hard. I placed 16th individually and then had to rest up for the relay event where Team East Midlands came 1st.

Eton

12th Jul, 2019

My last race was Eton Dorney Triathlon which was an extremely hot day (35 degrees) which caused a lot of tires to pop in transition (luckily not mine!).The heat made the run very hard but the swim was warm, I still wore a wet suit for the buoyancy as my Yonda Wetsuit is super quick to get off. Overall a good day out coming 5th. It was a very flat course which made it fast.

ITU Leeds Triathlon

9th Jun, 2019

Yesterday was ITU Leeds. I came out of the swim in 20th which was a good swim for me, the bike was hard with the mount line being on a hill and the run turned out to be brilliant as I didn't feel sick on the run. Overall I came 2nd.

Llanelli Triathlon

13th May, 2019

Last weekend I competed in Wales.
It was a sea swim which I had never done before. Luckily I got in to the second pack on the bike which pushed me on to do the run fast which was better then any run I had done before. It was a good result with 12th Uk u17 male.

Performance Assessment Weekend

11th Apr, 2019

Really happy with 14th at the National Super Series performance assessment weekend (at Prestwold race track and Nottingham university swimming pool). Not bad given my age. Now 'tier 1' youth for the Llanelli open water sea triathlon.
