Lost Sheep Triathlon

Sunday, 15 September 2019 by

I absolutely love this race. Its tough, even tortuous, raw but rewarding, unforgiving and unforgettable.  Seven years ago was the first time i did it and i’ve been hooked ever since.  Its called Lost Sheep but there really is nowhere to hide in this race, its relentless and will swallow you up if you let

Overview I’m aiming to write a review once a month or so and they will just outline a few topics that i think might be interesting or relevant regarding my race training.

Triathlon Coach – Yes Please!

Tuesday, 05 February 2019 by

My 2016 Race Results

Tuesday, 29 November 2016 by

2016 was an up and down sort of season with thankfully more ups than downs! I began with great pre-season and good solid training in January & February which really built the foundation for the year. A family holiday in March slowed things somewhat and then a calf injury hung over me for a few

This is my 3rd time competing in and sponsoring the iconic Lost Sheep Triathlon with the added onus that this year it was the National Middle Distance Championships.  In 2010 the swim was horrific, lots of people had to be pulled out of the water and it took me 1hr 7mins (for reference my full

Ive raced and sponsored Dublin City Triathlon for the past 6 years and its one of the highlights of the Irish Triathlon calendar, having won ‘Race of the Year’ on numerous occasions. The combination of city centre location, closed roads, a fairly ‘flat’ route, a calm river swim and good atmosphere ensure its always a
