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!

1hr 20
Easy spinning with 30mins of single leg drill, 1min left 1min right leg repeated.
No fan on!

30mins - I managed to do 15mins straight then 3x5min. I think the goal is to get this up to 30mins straight. It's also about getting used to processing a lot of fluid. Someone was in there with me rubbing Manuka honey on themselves - a bit weird. It was in Peckham so the talk was largely about the rioting.

The turbo was aimed at just keeping mobilised and doing a bit of drill that I had neglected. I've just booked in for a bike fit that's run by a fellow Serpentine runner - FREESPEED, it would be great if I could address that concern.

Did a bit of cycling in the day with Will in the cargo bike, and had to pick George up early from nursery - they were concerned about the troubles kicking off again.

Following yesterday's thoughts, I had a chat with a friend today. We decided rather than focus on "not getting injured" I will focus on "staying healthy"
