I started this blog in 2010 when there were 11 weeks to go before my next Ironman triathlon. People have found it interesting (mainly my Mum!) so I continue to write.
The Ironman is a long distance triathlon; Swim 2.4miles, Cycle 112miles, Run 26.2 miles (marathon). I have competed in one every year since 2004. I hope this blog can help others see what is involved. I find the process of writing it makes me more accountable and motivates me to do the harder sessions when i'm not feeling like it!

Went for a 2 hour cycle in the Cheshire country lanes. This was longer and had more intensity than i'd have liked but I still haven't managed to get the position right and it is starting to get very late in the day. Ended up with a 1mm shim and 3 wedges on the left, 2 wedges on the right.

The rest of the day has been spent looking after the boys and attaching the speed sensor to the bike, indexing the gears, tightening the screws to the torque settings etc,
