Sports

Triathlon: swimming, biking and running crazy long distances without a break. The aim is to complete all three sports (including transitions!) in the fastest time possible.

I still train for and take part in triathlons, but this section is hopelessly out of date (too much training?).

In 2015 I ran more than 1000miles and spent over seven days cycling!

In May 2013 I took part in the Geneva half-marathon, a few weeks later I finished the Cyclotour du leman, a 180km bike race. It was my first "century ride" (a bike ride of more than 100miles). In August I did my best not to melt in the heat at La cyclosportive des vins du valais, a shorter race but with a lot more climbing.

In 2012 I competed in a 5km lake swim at Utterly Buttermere and my first half Ironman distance triathlon which I completed in just over five hours.

Previously I have taken part in the 2011 Chicago triathlon, the 2011 Big Shoulders lake swim, several sprint distance triathlons (Fermilab 2010 and 2011, Blenheim Palace 2012, Geneva 2013), several 10km and 5km distance running races.
