Sorry I have been a bit quiet on here recently, lots of training and family time taking over! Today I received the news that the Wattbike24hr challenge sponsored by Rural Solutions Ltdwill not be recognised by Guinness World Recordsas they say the record is too similar to the greatest simulated distance on a static cycle in 24 hours and so this remains an unofficial world record. The current record for the static bike suggests that he covered 81kph every hour for 24 hours, the only way I believe this is achieved is on a spin bike with no resistance! For those that wish to try, the difference between the @wattbike and the conventional spin bike is massive.
This Sunday Kerry and I travel to Dubai where the training continues with some sea swimming and of course a little R and R.
Other things coming up soon include, my 6 hour assessment swim and speaking at the Leeds International Festival with a number of stars from the sporting world. By the end of May I should hopefully be able to reveal my new kit, sponsored by @iconsports.
Once again a massive thanks must go to all my sponsors for helping me get this far! #inspire #rural #yorkshire #train #pain ...
I had a great day yesterday with the guys from @biometeamuk. It was fantastic to have my blood tested to see how I might be able to use nutrition to help me train. I was helped with movement and flexibility, aiming at weaknesses in my body. Anyone looking to take their training to next level need to spend some time with these guys. Two guys with a wealth of experience and expertise. Diet is now on point, eating only whole nutrient dense foods. I have upped the calories so I can train hard but we have also worked out how to get some more and in fact better sleep. #sleep #coach #bio #blood #eat #nutrientrich #itsintheblood #tri #triathlon #sweatsession #REM #shellfish ...
We decided to make a little documentary. Here is episode 1. I’m hoping it gives you a little insight to what life is like for me and my family as I train towards the Epic Triathlon 2019. Many thanks to Dan at TwoSevenmedia for another fantastic piece of filming. If you watch this and want to get involved, why not send us a message. It was great to be able to use the Wattbike and Zwift while filming. Give it a watch, hopefully you might be inspired to get your trainers on and get outside! #inspire #epic #getinvolved ...
Love this! Well done Sam! I showed my husband this (he’s really into running and has done the HMDS) and you’ve inspired him to do another...so thanks for that 😂

Great piece in today’s Yorkshire Post, loving the headline and the nudge towards Maths! Good pic of the Trek Bicycle Madone sponsored by Hope Technology Ltd. The cycling top is the new SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity jersey. Been training hard over the last few weeks, mainly stuck inside on the Wattbike using Zwift. If you are on Zwift look me up and come for a ride, always good to have some company. Attended some great events recently at Bradford City FC and @officiallydale. The Bradford Sports Awards were a brilliant celebration for the city and fantastically presented by @tanya.arnold, was a real honour to share the room with some very inspiring people. For me, training intensifies now, if you see me out give me a wave. Added a little picture of Nellie for some extra inspirational this shocking weather! #zwift #triathlete #epic #speeches #events #triathlon #swim #bike #run #trek #cycle #papers #news #teacher #family #baby #family ...
