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!

Strength training
-see injury prevention page

Over the past few weeks I have been wondering about the strength side of things. There has been lots of volume (distance and time) but little strength work. This was as much about seeing where I was far enough away from the event for it to not to be deleterious. It also meant I could continue to back things off in a different way following the ankle injury which seems to be OK.

The turbo went well as did the strength work - so a boost to the morale.

I'll put the strength exercises in the injury prevention page.
