Recently I was fortunate to be one of only nine amateur athletes to be selected from a field of over 900 applicants to take part in Science in Sport’s (SiS) ‘Winter Academy’.  The idea behind the scheme is to take a handful of us amateurs and give us the opportunity to both work with nutritionists and product experts at SiS, as well as sample some of their different products to see how they work for us.

So it wasn’t quite the end to the 2012 competitive season that I wanted, but having ranted and raved about my frustration with the race in Auckland, it’s now time to pick myself back up and look forward to 2013.

If you’re a keen cyclist, the chances are you won’t have escaped the new(ish) phenomenon of ‘Strava’ (if you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last year, Strava is essentially a social media site where you can log your bike rides, runs etc and compare your performances against other Strava users). But is Strava a source of good or evil for a triathlete (or indeed cyclist or runner) in training?

In a week’s time from now (as I write), I should hopefully be sat at home reflecting on a successful first attempt at a middle-distance race, the Swashbuckler being held in the New Forest on Sunday 13th May.

So it’s been a little while since my last update, and as I’m sat here on a Sunday evening (the training plan says an hour’s easy run, the body says that after twenty hours this week, don’t be so bloody stupid!) I thought I might as well write a little update on the last couple of weeks.

If you’ve been reading previous blog posts, you’ll know all-too-much already about my knee issues. While I can’t unfortunately report any miraculous recovery, I can at least say that things might at least be getting no worse. In addition to my nightly appointments with the foam roller and tennis ball, I think there are two main factors playing a role in this.
