We still have a few places left in the London Triathlon and we want to complete our team. Because next week is the deadline for registrations we are removing the fundraising pledge (£500) and we are only asking for a donation of £50 plus the registration fee of £50.
I hope there will be many of you interested to represent Doctors of the World at the London Triathlon.
If you want to join the team, please send an email to…Continue

Was just wondering if the uncoached session was still on 10-11am?
To everyone at my track sessions in April - check out this really good video by Runners' World USA:
It's pretty comprehensive and covers a range of exercises you should all be doing to minimise your risk of running injuries.…Continue

So, my plan for this years Ironman races was to go down the ‘Wiggins’ route and lose weight as three out of my four M-dot races this year are proper hilly! It turns out that’s not really working for me as I’ve also lost some strength. Sunday turned into a difficult day for another reason too of course - it was very hot - and that was something we’re just not used to!
Race day and up at 3:15, force down a bit of breakfast, then it’s a cab to Pennington Flash to check on my bike,…
Hello, I wanted to start training with you all on Tuesdays/Thursdays at the Lido, can I join up at the Lido or do I need to do so in Advance? Will I meed to do a time trial to get in? J
Great blog Tony and awesome effort, you truly are a super athlete to be able to do more than one of these things per year! To add to Tony's comments thought I'd put my two penny's worth in (sorry it goes on a bit). I’m still in Tenby enjoying a peaceful week off in the beautiful Pembroke countryside.
I rocked up on Friday afternoon on the train and had the pleasure of travelling with two Americans on the train, one a former Marine who'd never been to the UK before. I was asked a…Continue
The first Ironman Wales!
Arrived Thursday afternoon, went straight to registration above the South Beach where the swim was to start from and noticed the wind immediately! The marquees they had up were flapping around quite a bit and were held down with huge tanks of water on each corner - a sign of things to come!
Went for a practice swim on Friday morning - 1k took me 34 minutes (ouch!) in a choppy sea with bit of a current, still at least the rain had stopped for…

Firstly, big congrats to Ted with a fantastic finish time of 11 hours 21 mins - and fame as he was interviewed during the run and is on the official DVD!
My day didn't end quite so well ...
Swim was OK at 1:13. The bike leg wasn't too bad at 7:25, especially as the wind was a lot stronger than last year. So far so good - I'm a bit faster everywhere despite the increased wind and heat. First run loop (half…Continue

It's always good to try something new (isn't it?!) so when I got an email about the London Ultra Marathon 50K run a couple of weeks ago I just couldn't resist.
The route is point-to-point from Streatham Common (handy) to Wembley (not so handy!) and follows the Capital Ring through as many parks and river/canal banks as possible in between.
It kicked off with compulsory registration the day before in Wembley but it was combined with a small expo so you get to…Continue

They are also looking for storage space for the equipment so if anyone has any suggestions they are welcomed. Interested in Race Director? contact: BrockwellHelpers@parkrun.com

Windrush have 2-3 places fully funded (worth £400) for club members to attend the British Triathlon Federation Level 1 Coaching Qualification course. The course will be run at the Crystal Palace sports centre and will provisionally be on the 26th and 27th Feb and 19 March.
If you would like to go on this course you will need to attend all three days of sessions and pass the exam (fairly straightforward) and commit to coaching 20 hours in the next year at the club. …Continue
So the event we have all been waiting for - the Brockwell Lido winter swim is this Saturday (8th)!! You will be allowed to 'swim' from 12-1pm so I thought if all those hardy Windrushers who want to attend meet at 12 on the pool-side, we can all have a chat and jump in together!! Entry is free but there will be a collection for charity. I am also informed that there will be a BBQ and the lido cafe will be open to get some warm food in after the event!! No…Continue

Get the entries in. There are atleast 10 people in this club who can qualify for worlds next year...and this is one of the qualifiers. If we get ten people there, I'll even do the race! All we need to add is a little bit of hurt.
I just need to take an audit of all the Club Turbo Trainers. We should have 8 in total, but I can only account for 5. I you have one (even if I know you one), please can you send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
