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!

Cycle 120km round Richmond Park
Treadmill 5 x 2min at 10km pace (16km/hr) on 2min rest

- Not much to report. I was quite anxious before starting as a crash a this late stage would present loads of problems. It all went well. I did the usual changing of position only to end up where I started! I think its got a lot to do with warming up - I need to hold my nerve for a lot longer than i'd expect (2hours +) before making any changes.

- Biked the kids to the childminder in the christiania today - a group of school kids said it was "sick" I think that means good?

- Will helped with my rolling on the golf ball (to massage the knots), this time I managed to get a picture.
After put kids to bed
30mins - finally consistently able to do it. Good job as it's probably the last one.
Cycling to the gym on a Friday night - for some reason everyone's driving was appalling.
