A good training camp is just like a good dinner party, with the right mix of people it is bound to be a success and last weeks triathlon camp in Majorca definitely fit the bill. The week started out with 2 days of rain and cold weather so not ideal when you need to be […]
“Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to cycle and he will realize fishing is stupid and boring” – Desmond Tutu There is no doubting the idyllic island of Majorca is one of the best places for any […]
Over the last couple of months, and in particular the last few weeks, I have found myself spending more time thinking about and talking with athletes about how the physical efforts of an athlete only make up part of performance. While we spend many hours trying to achieve the best physical results and even looking at spending money in the search of speed, how long do we spend focusing on maybe the strongest of the bodies engines….. the mind.
We were picked up at 06:30am from the Hotel by RG Active Majorca based friend Harry picked us up to take us to Alcudia where the race was taking place. The day was looking good, the weather was calm and still and there was not a ripple on the water as we drove from Pollensa to Alcudia along the coast road.
Yes, I am nervous…… I always get nervous.
I get nervous before the Richmond Park 5km races and I am definitely nervous about tomorrow. But don’t think this is a bad thing to get nervous, I think of it as a very positive thing.
I am sure many of you have races coming up in the next few weeks………..

I hope this BLOG finds everyone well and ready to start 2010 fresh after some time off? I am assuming most of you have had some time off, because unless you have been out of the country or hibernating some where you will have been getting increasingly frustrated by the SNOW we have had across the UK.
After your last race at the end of the summer it is always a good idea to have 1-4 weeks off, and this gives your body a chance to recovery after the summer season and the time off always makes getting back into training so much better because you really begin to miss the buzz of the sessions and the racing!
Hello everyone, Day two is coming to a close and I am in a much better place. We have spoken to a few people that have told us the winds we experienced yesterday were as bad as it gets! That is not to say it will not be like that on race day but at […]
Hello everyone, I am just chilling out after a few days of resting from the RG Active Training Camp in Majorca. The Camp was a MASSIVE success and Dermott comes home this Sunday after he took over from myself when I returned on Wednesday. I am not sure if any of you have seen the […]
