I’m really excited to announce that my good friend, Doug Hall, will be joining the T3 Triathlon coaching team. Doug was the man to watch when I first started triathlon, and I’ve learnt masses off him over the years. We were members of Team Bath Triathlon and South West Regional Academy as youngsters. We’ve grown…

So, you want to do Swimrun

The world of Swimrun has really taken off in the last couple of years. It’s a relatively new style of racing, meaning it is also not documented that heavily. We have just returned from competing in the Otillo Swimrun World Championships, Sweden. We finished 7th, highest non-swedish and novices to the event. One thing we…

Whilst Frodeno and Ryf were smashing the pro field apart, the T3 boys were also laying down some impressive performances in Austria. As if bringing up a new born and getting married in the same year wasn’t enough, Jonathan Mills decided he would qualify for the World Champs too. This was his first World Champs,…

This is the exciting part of the year. Race season is under way, and all that training is being put to the test. Some new training regimes and tactics have been tried; will they work, will they not work? If the first few races are anything to go by, it’s been very successful. We’ve had…

It’s all go, go at T3 right now! Our athletes have been very busy. Jonathan and Darren have recently returned from a training camp in Spain; getting some uber bike miles in, and finishing the camp with a swim race. They returned to the UK feeling very sorry for their legs. I’m keen for my…

A quick update on some of the performances this season from the T3 athletes. Paul Lunn has been having a super year, and doesn’t look like he’s slowing down come the end of the season either! He recently claimed 2nd in the Vitruvian Middle Distance Triathlon, posting a super quick bike and solid run off….

Emma off to a flying start

One of our athletes, Emma Hayles, has recently achieved her first goal of qualifying for the ITU World AG Triathlon Championships. She qualified in the Deva Triathlon, despite having a below par performance for her. It was actually a pretty good effort considering she only decided to race a couple of days before. Prior to…

On the road

So, what did I get up to on my own in Mallorca for a week?? I rode the 70.3 bike course more times than I’d like to admit to, I watched 2 series of Suits, spent an obscene amount of time in the saddle, came 3rd in a Half Marathon, and got caught in a…
