Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Race Report

Well as the title suggests, the opening race has been completed. The sprint tri I completed on Sunday. Epic Events delivered again. This company is fantastic and to have the races these guys put on, on my door step, is…

Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: It’s Race Time!

As the title suggests it is my first triathlon of the year this coming weekend. Actually as you read this I would have already (hopefully) smashed it! Well I’m really excited about this race and I have reason for it….

Mikes Middle Distance Magic: Busy But Productive!

Things are getting back on track with training. This week has gone pretty well. The only session I’ve missed is the swim. Looking at the calendar at the start of the week I was thinking how on earth am I…

Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Back At It!

Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Its Kitchen Sink Time! Arghh

I’ve left writing this blog till lunch time Friday, mainly as this week has been a bit of a washout so far! I missed my long run Monday, did flexibility Tuesday, missed my swim Wednesday. So what to write about!…

Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Tri Season is approaching Fast!

Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Green, Green, Green

This week I’ve really been on a high, absolutely smashed this week and am really proud of myself how its gone! My long bike on the Sunday was great, it was the first bike ride I’ve done outside for about 5 months and I did the full 3 hour session. I completed this ride with a friend which always helps. The session was more a social ride for me rather than keeping to strict power/speed etc. To be honest my main goal for this session was to keep my bum on the saddle of a bike for 3 hours!

Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Success week and posture analysis!

I’m currently doing a sports massage course and I’m learning a lot about muscles, joints, posture etc. The course tutors are brilliant and their knowledge is unreal! I’ve never really paid that much attention to the way I swim/bike/run and I’ve took more notice in the results, paces speed etc.
