How to do a proper hamstring stretch – Kinetic Revolution

I found this video to be extremely informative, and also found out that when I thought I had been stretching my hamstring I had in fact been doing something entirely different. Give it a try. Hamstring strech vs sciatic tension. You can access the full article from Kinetic Revolution here.

Endura Crossbow Glasses Review

I used my Crossbow glasses for a good 6 months before accidentally leaving them in a field after a triathlon. They are a very nice pair of face hugging cycling specific glasses with reactive lenses in them. They start off almost clear and then gradually tint more and more depending on the amount of sunlight, […]

Craft Cycle Jersey Review

I recently picked up a Craft L1 Ventilation cycling top, and thought that I would put up a quick review. As you can see from the picture it has some lovely elegant detailing and for a mid range top it has some nice features. The finish on this Craft cycle jersey is very soft to the […]

Endura FS260-Pro Bibknicker

I have a new favourite piece of cycling equipment, the Endura FS260-Pro Bibknicker. I’m even willing to forgive its slightly weird name. I have never before ridden with a three quarter length tight, so that was a new experience but fortunately one that I favoured. Over here in the UK’s wildly unpredictable yet often moderate […]

Lifeventure Thermal Mug – Review

A few weeks ago my wife and I picked up a couple of the Lifeventure Thermal Mugs from Go Outdoors and I thought they were worth a mention on here. We often find ourselves out and about wishing we had packed a thermos, and on the occasions that we do remember a thermos we struggle […]

Running Technique Analysis – Session 2

At the end of last year I had a running technique analysis session with Neil Scholes from Kinetic Revolution. It was organised by my triathlon club and was extremely useful. You can read all about that session here. With more than a thousand running miles under my belt since the last session I thought it was time […]

A walk of a lifetime – Ben Nevis Part 1

Ben Nevis was the first Munro that I ever climbed. For those of you that don’t know: A Munro is any Scottish mountain peak that rises higher than 3000 feet above sea level, and Ben Nevis is the biggest, topping out at 4409 feet. That first time was nearly 15 years ago and we went […]

Plymouth Breakwater Swim

In this brief respite I thought that I would take some time to write about one of the most amazing events that I’ve taken part in all year. It was the Plymouth Breakwater Swim in aid of the Chestnut Appeal for Prostate Cancer. The swim was 2.2 miles and took place in the middle of August. […]

Top of Pen Y Fan

Land crab impersonations on Pen Y Fan

Today I was scheduled to do an easy 14 miler. As is my way I chose to ignore the easy part as I just so happened to be a few miles down the road from Brecon Beacons. My last attempt at Pen Y Fan, an otherwise fairly unassuming peak, was foiled by extreme snow and […]

Ben Nevis

And rest…..or not!

Any training article worth its salt will advise you that the most important part of improving your fitness has nothing to do with the workouts. Instead it is how you spend time recovering from them and what you do when you aren’t exercising. Unfortunately most of us normal human beings have our real lives to […]

Hever Gauntlet Half Iron Distance Triathlon Review

I’ll cut straight to the chase: This was the best organised triathlon that I have ever competed in. All aspects of it were well thought out and all elements of the course took you through stunning surroundings, from an interesting lake/river swim then then through the best that the Kent countryside has to offer on the […]

Hoka One One Stinson Evo Shoe Review

If you’ve read my shoe preview, here, then you will know why I was spurred on to give these shoes a try. In short I ran with someone using them and after 7.5 hours of running he was still extolling their virtues. I then read up on them and decided that they would be worth […]

Hanger Up N Down Race – Review

Today I raced in the inaugural Hanger Up N Down race as organised by my local running club, The Erme Valley Harriers. It promised to be a moderately hilly eight mile running race predominantly along trails and through fields, all in a picturesque setting with stunning views of Dartmoor and South Devon. This year it […]

Coombe Abbey Start

Coombe Abbey Running Festival 2013

The Coombe Abbey Running Festival only came into being this year (2013). It was organised by the company Go Beyond Ultra which is owned by experienced endurance athlete Steve Adams who I bumped into on the day. Predominantly Go Beyond Ultra organise ultra marathon events, but occasionally like to throw in something a little shorter. […]

Markel Castle Triathlon Series – Cholmondeley Castle Review

I ran along the narrow metaled track focusing hard to keep moving and keep my form. Lift heels, elbows back, cadence high, no slouching. I focused my eyes on the track in front, faltered, rubbed my eyes and stared again. There, right in the middle of the track was a fully grown swan. It was standing […]

Premium Rush Review – Fixed wheel lunacy

Fixed gear. Steel Frame. No Brakes. Can’t stop. Don’t want to! Wilee – Premium Rush Over the last few days I have been watching Premium Rush in bits and pieces whenever I have had five minutes to enjoy a bit more. It is a 2012 film about lead character Wilee, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is a cycle […]

Hoka One One Stinson Evo Trail Shoe – Preview

We have just received these rather amazing shoes to test and review. They are the Hoka One One Stinson Evo trail shoes, and while they aren’t cheap they have had a lot of thought and design work put into them. Just in case you wondered the brand is pronounced Hoka Onee Onee as opposed to Hoka won won. I imagine that your first […]
