Singapore Duathlon - National Championship

The Singapore Duathlon was the first duathlon race since I injured myself pretty badly at the last one in July. I was a little bit apprehensive about the bike course for this one - it's mainly in the park and comprises 6 laps of a 6-and-a-bit km loop which has some tight, narrow turns. If it's...

Ironman 70.3 World Championships

At the beginning of April this year I asked my Dad, “If I ever qualified for the World Championships, would you come to support me?” “Of course we would, darling, of course.” So, two weeks later when I called them and told them I had won in Putrajaya and qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World...

13 Tips to Stay Safe While Training

Most of us train or exercise, at least in part, to stay healthy.
