Weymouth half – the run

Tamsyn running in Weymouth.

I had mixed feelings as I headed out onto the run. I knew that I could complete the distance as I’ve run further before. My longest run in training had only been 8 miles, so I was a little daunted. Getting a boost from seeing friends I had only just Read more…


Weymouth Half – The bike (and T2)

Tamsyn on her bike during Weymouth Half.

T2 was my best discipline at Weymouth Half. After grabbing my bag and putting on my helmet, it was time to put on my race belt and ride. I’d decided to put my shoes on before getting to my bike. There was a slightly twisty section before getting out onto Read more…


Weymouth Half – the swim (and T1)

People starting the sea swim.

We got up stupidly early fort Weymouth Half as triathlons always start before sane people are awake. Stu made an instant porridge, whereas I ate some cold blueberry protein porridge that I had made the day before. It didn’t taste especially delicious as it was so cold, but I thought Read more…


Preparation for Weymouth Half

Transition bags ready!

The weekend of Weymouth Half was finally here. Stu and I finished packing and drove down to Weymouth, knowing that Liz and Suzanne were also on their way. We’d booked a hotel room in Dorchester, which is a 10-minute drive away. We thought it would be quieter there and it Read more…

Ironman Weymouth 70.3 logo

Woohoo! I’ve now entered my final A race for 2016 (with the other two being Southampton Half Marathon in April and Long Course Weekend in July). I’ve entered Ironman Weymouth 70.3.

The GU Energy Weymouth Bay Triathlon

GU Weymouth Classic goodies

This was the first Olympic distance triathlon that I did last year, so I decided to enter it to try to beat my time. I also thought it would be a good race to do as it involves a sea swim and I haven’t done any sea swims so far Read more…


Injuries – 1; First week of Challenge Weymouth training schedule – 0

View from the Itchen Bridge

I was meant to start the first week of my first half iron distance triathlon training schedule this week, but I’m still struggling with arm pain and my swollen knee doesn’t seem to be deflating, so I’m already behind schedule. I should have been doing an hour on my turbo Read more…


Disappointment

Wooden walkway into a misty forest of pine trees at Cape Disappointment, USA.

My big event this year was to be Castle to Coast triathlon. RideLondon last weekend was my final big training event, so I was cautious and saved my energy. Sadly, the weather conditions meant that the event was cancelled. What a disappointment. I feel disappointed that I wasn’t able to Read more…


Improving your transition times

Transition bags ready!

Did you know that the key to getting a PB is improving your transition times? I’ve been to support a few friends at various multisport events recently. It is amazing how often winning or losing is determined in transition. In an aquathlon, a woman who was one of the first Read more…


Long Course Weekend 2018 – the good, the bad and the ugly

Tamsyn finishing Long Course Weekend run

Two years ago, I took part in Long Course Weekend. I’d originally entered the full distance, but when I got pregnant, I realised that I wouldn’t be able to do the full event. I loved the experience, so we agreed that we would come back when M was a bit Read more…
