Firstly, I would like to apologise for the lack of posts over the last few weeks. Due to a heavy work period and injuries preventing me from training, I haven’t really had much to write […]
Last weekend it was the National Combined Event Championships at Bedford International Stadium. There were 40 entries in the senior men’s competition, which is tremendous for the sport, with competitors coming from all across the country.
I started working with a new coach 3 weeks ago and it has made a massive difference. I’m really see some big technical improvements in training. The hard part is now putting all of that into competition […]

In 7 days my outdoor season will officially start for 2017. To say I’m not nervous would be lying. When you have such high expatiations of yourself its hard not to get a little nervous, especially when this will be my first decathlon in 6 years.
Since finding out about the issues with my shins/calves training hasn’t been great and neither has my diet. But this is something that all athletes go through and it’s a tough dealing with certain little injuries.

On Saturday I made the long trip up to Gateshead for my final indoor competition of the season. This was going to be a real test as it would be the first time I had completed 5 events in one day, for several years. It wasn’t a traditional pentathlon which would normally include, hurdles, long jump, shot putt, high jump and 1000m but the 1000m was changed to a flat 60m sprint due to the limitations of the indoor facility.
