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!

6km easy, on the hills of Mansfield. Completely different to the run last year when everything was covered in frost still good to get out though.

Don't usually run with the ipod but was listening to an audiobook by Thomas Sowell on race and culture - today was on the history of Slavery - absolutely amazing stuff I didn't know; it only accounted for 2% of British GDP when we were the country doing the most and cost more than that to stop it following William Wilberforce's efforts. Anyway I digress.
