My name is Matty Grice and I am relatively new to triathlon having only been racing since September 2014. Up to now I’ve only raced sprint distance triathlon but I would like to look at longer races in the future.
My favourite discipline is the bike as it seems to be my strength but I am learning to love the other two. I took up triathlon as a training focus, to give myself a goal and to push myself. I was happy to finish in the top 15% at my first triathlon.
I came across Total Tri by seeing Tony’s van with the logo and advert on it and thought that coaching would be a great idea to get me focussed and disciplined in my training. I joined the team in June 2014 and have loved the structure to my training and not having to think about what session to do on each day. Tony knows what I need to do and how much to do and pushes me to go beyond where I would be able to get myself. I also find the race knowledge priceless as this only comes with years of experience and Tony gives me great advice on tips to make my race go as smoothly as possible.
Other than triathlon and training I work so I don’t really have time for hobbies, triathlon is my hobby I suppose!
