Banish The Off Day
A subject close to my heart: trying to banish those race days when everything just unravels and you struggle to finish. Piece focused on the physical and mental aspects, so interviewed leading psychologists and exercise physiologists. Also tapped up the world's finest triathletes to proffer their views.
Sample of other recent features for 220 Triathlon magazine include:
> Run shoe grouptest. Over the years I've tested a plethora of swim, bike and run gear.
> Doping in age-group triathlon. A fascinating piece to research that looked at the prevalence of illegal ergogenic aids in recreational triathlon.
> Impact of genetics on performance. Spoke to geneticists, coaches and athletes to ascertain how much of performance can be attributed to nature over nurture.
