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!

My minor cold was with me all day - just had an easy swim. My usual pool was closed as "someone had had an accident" Later I found this was a case of vomit in the pool.

I went to Camberwell pool instead - it's been done up since I was last there. Previously it had the worst changing rooms in London. Now it's all a bit swanky.

250m warm up
250m single arm
250m clenched fists
250m no arms!
250m fast-ish
250m catch up
250m cool down

Shoulder a little annoying again - must get it looked at.
Usual physio exercises as well - really focusing on the calf raises to try and get some structural integrity into the achilles
