Dublin City Triathlon 2016 Race Review

DCT has a great reputation and I really was impressed. Piranha club volunteers do such a good job – super course, slick comms, top venue, food and atmosphere. For me the race went well, 17th in 2hr 20 m, although my place is a bit inflated as the depth of quality in the field was … Continue reading Dublin City Triathlon 2016 Race Review


Fat Adaptation Diary: Week 10

Three weeks ago I wrote about some of the challenges I faced while adopting to a Keto/LCHF nutrition approach. Good news is I feel better writing this time around.
