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!

400m Warm up
10 x 100m on 25sec recovery at race pace
100m Cool down

I found this tough. A bit of inertia in the arms, so it was good to get them moving again. Bret Sutton the triathlon coach guru thinks we should be doing 40 x 100m sessions. So I hope to be adding a few more sets as the weeks go by. Today I focused on my hand entering the water before my elbow, i've not really looked at that aspect before. It seemed to help.


I did some research around this yesterday. Apparently it takes 3days for the adaptation to heat to fall again so i'll aim to repeat this every 2-3 days.
