First Olympic Distance Triathlon…

So after my few lazy days today was the big one. My first attempt at the full triathlon. The swim was horrible with awful south westerly swells making everything a lot harder… That’s 9 minutes longer than my last 1500m swim and that swim was after a 10.5km skate, so that’s nearly 25% extra effort read more »

Don’t Exercise, It Won’t Do You Any Good… #youarebeingfarmed

So now we have this piece of utter nonsense… ‘Exercise “not key to obesity fight”‘. Firstly, let get one thing straight. Activity and exercise are not the same thing. Going for a walk is not exercise, it’s just an activity. Bear that in mind if you want to lose weight. When i walk, which i read more »

Reasons To Cycle Early – My First Polecat…

People usually look at me like i’m quite mad when they find out that i go out cycling between 4.30 and 5.00 am. The main reason i do this is because there’s hardly any mettle monsters on the roads. Not only is this safer, but also a hell of a lot less stressful and also read more »

What annoys me is the reporter, Steve Connor, who just couldn’t help himself to mention ‘skin-tight Lycra’ in their title and also in the article. So i sent a letter of complaint to the Independant… read more »

Burn Fat Not Oil…

The greatest piece of weight loss equipment ever invented… Really good for fitness also. It’s so easy to burn off 20 kilograms of fat in a year riding a good bike for an hour a day – peddle at 90rpm cadence until your HRM says you burned 500 calories. And the benefit to your immediate read more »

Did I Really Do That Run? Strava…

The Beeb have put up a good article on websites like Strava and how they’re impacting on people’s health and fitness… ‘Sport for the social media and smart phone generation’. From the article… We have all heard the philosophical head-scratcher about whether a tree falling over in the forest makes a sound if there is read more »

Cycling With Headphones…

The BBC are having a bit of a fit on cycling at the moment. Their latest one is ‘Headphones dilemma for cyclists’. Anyone watching the video must come to the same conclusion as i do. Why are you taking calls on your mobile phone while cycling? I’m not sure what’s worse, waiting for calls on read more »
