Epic Camp Days 7 and 8

Epic Camp Days 7 and 8

Epic Camp is done and dusted. I’m on route back to the Gold Coast for a bit of recovery and then back into the training again. It was a great camp and I’m glad to have done it again. I completed my initial goals – all the minimums plus some extra. Day 7 By this […]


Epic Camp Days 4 to 6

Epic Camp Days 4 to 6

So onto part two of my Epic Camp report. The fact I’m posting two reports during the camp is a step up from last year! Then again the whole Camp has been a step up for me this time round, bigger volume, extra points and not feeling quite so tired from this. I’m roughly where […]


Epic Camp Days 1 to 3

Epic Camp Days 1 to 3

Forget sleep, time to actually update my blog and let people know how we’re going. Three days in and I can’t quite believe how much I’m hammering myself this time! Steven commented to me on arrival day how he was amused that on the one hand I’ve commented on how I’d been warned the second […]


Rushed Training Review

Rushed Training Review

It’s about time I reviewed my last month of training. My week leading into Epic Camp is a bit like a taper, less training and a lot more free time. No internet to distract me either and an old X Files episode just isn’t that interesting (no tennis on at the moment). January isn’t quite […]


Another Down Under

Another Down Under

Posting may be a little bit erratic over the next few weeks as I’m heading off to New Zealand. I don’t mean to imply that they’re backwards there, but I’m not sure on when and how I’ll be accessing the internet! The main reason for the trip is to attend Epic Camp. My second time […]


Quiet week

Quiet week

Whole week since I last posted, time to recover and think about what came out of Epic Camp. I’ve done a bit of both of those, but I’ve still a way to go I think. It’s amazing to look back on the camp and see how much I can train in the right environment, it’s […]


Night after Epic Camp

Night after Epic Camp

Back home, unpacked with the exception of the bike which I’ve yet to muster the energy to assemble. I’ve put a long, more detailed post on Epic Camp up on the Team blog. I’m not going to repeat myself here, so you’ll have to go over there to see the details. That’s me doing the […]


Wrecked

Wrecked

Fourth post without a photo, too tired to try and find something relevant, may have photos from the camp later. First chance I’ve had to spend the time to write a post, been either training, eating or sleeping. The 4th day of Epic Camp is over and compared to the last 2 days it was […]


Night before Epic Camp

Night before Epic Camp

A quick post as my aim is to finish this in the last 15 minutes of Grey’s Anatomy. Fly out to Epic Italy tomorrow afternoon, not yet packed, but I’ve got the day tomorrow to finish things off. Bike is cleaned and serviced and looking and shifting the best it has in ages. I’m pretty […]


Hung Over

Hung Over

That’s what it felt like this morning and having been teetotal for over 9 years now it’s not something I’m used to. Combination of soreness from the race and allowing myself to get a bit dehydrated later in the day. A simple mistake and I should know better… Provisional results are up for Beaulieu and […]
