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!

Race pace set
Warm up 600m
6 x 50 as 25 solid 25 easy
Main set - 5 x 400m on 20sec rest at race pace
Warm down - 6 x 50 on 1min rest

It was difficult to drag myself to the pool for this. A day of looking after Will where I decided the TV wouldn't go on at all - I don't like the way it can become an extra parent (well I like it, but don't think it does him any good!). There's a lot mentally happening on top of training at the moment - it's only this last year i've noticed that mental work and physical come from the same internal bank. However, it all came good after 10mins or so and I was glad I went.

Walked around with Will in the baby rucksack for an hour as well today - he's getting heavier. We went to visit a friend of mine Paolo but he wasn't in.
