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!

Managed the full 30mins today, with no breaks. Wore the heart rate monitor again, not sure it will last long in the heat. Being Peckham the conversations still centre around the riots.

Childcare was hectic and Ella not home till 10pm so no other training done - even though I feel like I have.

Did do a bit of core work and some stretching - the "pigeon" yoga pose has been recommended so gave that a go.

It's hard not to get nervous when I have a non planned rest day. As it's now Hawaii and not Bolton.
