Sporting Provenance

Sporting Provenance Thumbnail

I was sent a goody bag of sporting delights to try out a few weeks ago by a guy who is in the process of setting up a UK distribution for items with a valid sporting provenance. I have to say that I was impressed by quite a few of the items. Hoo Haa Ride [...]

BPTT Update for 19th May

BPTT Update for 19th May Thumbnail

Not much to report on the running front this week, it's all been quite a struggle. Deege explains the runners eternal battle with the mind body dichotomy better than I ever could. I'm afraid to say that while Deege managed to win her battle, I just bailed. Out on my long run my body started [...]

Stratford Sprint Tri – Results

I'm not familiar with the way triathlon results are recorded but I'm assuming they include the transition time immediately after each event. It's quite an achievement to capture everyones stage results without the use of the timing chips, [...]

I have [...]

Run, bike, swim

Sundays now seem to be the day for upside down triathlons. This morning I nipped out for a short run around Chswick and Barnes Bridge to check out the aftermath of the boat race. Gorgeous morning, the river seemed to be teeming with kayaks for a change. After a longish transition involving the production of [...]

I Float

I took advantage of my extra light hour this evening and cycled down to Pools in the Park for a little paddle. Seems I can still remember how to float but forward progress is slow and quite painful actually. The front of my ankle hurts after a few lengths so I had to give up [...]

Impulsive Nutter

Oh good grief, not sure what has possessed me but I've just pressed submit on an entry form for the Stratford Sprint Triathlon. I think I am going to be asking myself why for quite some time to come. I can't remember how to swim so I'm going to immerse myself in Hampton outdoor pool [...]
