Learning to swim properly and efficiently has been one of the most rewarding things I've done on my fitness journey - especially when I go on holiday and can swim out to sea and feel strong and unfrightened. For anyone that wishes they could swim better, my advice is to get in there and find a good teacher - remember you're never too old to learn.

I've only gone and signed up for a sprint triathlon. It seemed like a good idea at the time. My friends and I thought it would be really clever to do the longer distance (last year we did the Super Sprint which is shorter.) So here I am, signed up for a 750m swim, 19.8km bike ride and a 5.5km run in early June.

When it came to race day I wanted to be sick when I came out of the water, the lake was green with algae, I got kicked, it was pouring with rain, I ran with wet socks, got shouted at by marshals, and on the run I was so fatigued I felt like I actually might die. However, as the saying goes 'It's the hard that makes it great'.

Race day nutrition can unquestionably help you to perform better. If you want to go faster, you should make nutrition a focus... There are no universal rules. Though Usain Bolt is a special case and 100m is a very different discipline to triathlon, he found what suited him as a pre-race meal and stuck to it. Though I wouldn't recommend chicken nuggets to my clients!

It's important to emphasise carbs in the meal and snack before your training session. If you're training in the middle of the day, breakfast should be very substantial. If you're planning an evening training session, you should make lunch the big one.

What works on dry land most definitely does not work in the water. Our leg muscles (especially the quads and the hamstrings) that have been so wonderful at propelling us land-based bipeds around for a million years or so are not very effective at moving us through the water when doing front crawl.

"The arms have got to pump, the knees have got to come up high," howled Steve Cram, gorging the lip-mic as he bellowed Mo Farah into history on the final straight of the 10,000 metres late last summer. It was a remarkable night for British sport. It also left many of us pondering what it would be like to take part in a genuine distance event.

This summer has been one of mixed triumphs for sports fans in England and the UK. Following a typically mediocre performance by Britain's permier national football team in Ukraine, Bradley Wiggins went on to become the first Briton to win the Tour de France before taking Olympic gold in the men's individual time trial. At this point, on the eve of the Men's Triathlon, it seems an appropriate time to comment on the status of Britain's sporting emphases.
