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!

30 mins (managed 25mins before going onto the bottom shelf)
800m warm up
1000m as 25m sighting 25m free 25m single arm drill

I took it easy after yesterday. The sighting practice was needed as i'm rubbish on one side and good on the other.
Booked the airport parking - as you'd expect I was saying - "how much!?"

I haven't put the bike fitting pictures in so here's as good a place as any;

It doesn't look like much of a change but the main thing is reducing the scooping effect the arms have on the on-coming air. Forearms more horizontal, upper arms more vertical - by moving forward on the saddle and lower on the aerobars.

A lovely older lady from across the road dropped a check in through the letter box for the charity today. She said she doesn't want a computer so i'll have to take a check. Thank you Grace.
