Whoosh…back in the game

It’s been far too long and I’ve been working far to hard! My new venture fatznskillz.co.uk is fully launched and things are looking good – if you are after a website designer, website developed, video production team, video edit or just some good old graphic design (pssttt…we do 3D design and motion graphics too!) then drop us a line contact@fatznskillz.co.uk and we’ll get you sorted! JITO has gone away, just morphed into something bigger and better! Now the formalities are…

Grafman 2014

Back from my holiday sporting a few stitches and a sore hand, Mrs A didn’t want me to do it, but today I raced the 2014 Grafman Middle Distance Triathlon. It was a little bit of a last minute decision to enter but I had always planned on doing a 1/2 ironman before Zurich. Grafham water is pretty close to home so it seemed to make sense! My strategy for the race was my normal appraoch; survive the swim, wreck…

Majorca holiday training

Right, so things didn’t exactly go to plan on this years family holiday to Mallorca! Firstly we had a problem with out Villa a few weeks before we left, in short, the company were booking villas they didn’t hold the contract for and subsequently went bust. We were left looking for a new villa at short notice, fortunately we found a nice little place reasonably close to Pollenca Old Town and the holiday was back on. Full speed ahead, bike…

Training but not talking about it…

Hello once more, it’s been a while and for that I’m very sorry, but things have been rather busy in the jito household, mostly due to a change of job and trying to get ironman training done. Rest assured that I’ve not quit this blogging thing forever, I just don’t have many spare hours at the moment. Not much had actually happened since my last post, I’ve done a couple of events. In particular the 2014 version on the Milton…

Back in training

After taking all of December off due to a knee injury, this week has marked the start of my return to full training and also the start of the road towards Ironman Zurich 2014. My knee injury is basically an overuse problem which I have ignored for too long and now it has become a reasonably big problem. I was out on a ride at the start of December and the right hand side of my right knee felt a…

Aims for 2014

Following last year’s goal setting, I guess it would be a good idea to put a few things down on [virtual] page again this year. However this year if rather simple, it’s about one thing: Ironman Switzerland That’s it then, but of course there will be other events that come inbetween now and then…roughly, Milton Keynes Marathon and a middle distance triathlon somewhere. Let’s do it!

Quiet but busy at the very same time

Yep, it’s been pretty silent on here recently, but for good reason!! Firstly, Jito Ltd is now a fully time job, so if you have any design projects you need tackling then drop me an email!! Secondly, I’m injured and therefore not training, but never fear I’ve still been riding my bike most days! However, bike riding has also ceased for the past ten days. The physio is confident, the GP is clueless but has referred to me an ‘expert’…

Ampthill and Flitwick Flyers Ampthill Trophy XC race

Ampthill Trophy XC Race Today signaled the start of the cross country season at the Ampthill Trophy, hosted by Ampthill and Flitwick Flyers and held in the wonderful Ampthill Park.  This year was the first year that I have done this race and it was rather refreshing to be able to jog to the start of an event and run on familiar trails.  With the park being about 800 yards from my front door, I knew that is was going…
