It was clear from day one I came into the sport too late and on the back-foot, but I’m still determined to give it a go! My last season at Leander was tough, but I learnt a lot and definitely improved both with my fitness and my technical prowess. I am eternally gratef...

Henley T&V is an absolute corker of a regatta to end a season on. I raced Band 2 W.1x, wearing my trusty old Henley RC colours. It was a very lovely day (scorchio!) which always makes things 10x better, we were hit with some pretty naff wind which churned up the course...

I have taken a well deserved two weeks off any real training. This wonderful break included HRR, Henley Festival, a quick trip to Spain, starting a new job and stuffing myself full of cheese. It was great, well needed and now I’m ready to jump back on the horse ready f...

Henley Womens Regatta - what a weekend of up's and downs!

Thank you so much for all the kind words of support and tips about beating nerves following my last blog post. I started the weekend in good spirits and with the wind playing ball I had a superb time trial, even...

So. It’s now been a few months since I’ve had the Garmin Vivoactive 3 and I now think I’ve taken it for enough of a spin to make my full and honest opinion. In short, I very much enjoy the watch and it’s a great training tool but still certainly has its downfalls.

The G...

Fat.

Y’all knew that was coming. It is a word I struggle with on a daily basis, purely because I am an eater in denial. I know I eat, a lot, but I lie to myself about it. I eat the wrong things. I try almost every few weeks to start a ‘new week, new me’ mantra when it c...

With all sport, not just rowing, you can experience serious highs and serious lows. Perhaps the biggest difference for me with rowing is I’ve experienced a lot more lows, and yet for some reason have stayed dedicated to the sport.

When I was younger I swam competitively...

Thank you for all your kind feedback following my latest blog post, I’ve really enjoyed hearing about everyone’s little tips and tricks they use on the build up to a particular test or race. I even had to follow some of it myself as I developed a head splitting migrain...
