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!

32 Weeks to go

A really mixed set tonight, focusing on something different every 100m
100m warm up
100m trying to keep one goggle in the water when breathing
100m thumb first recovery then spearing water with horizontal hand
100m middle finger extended straight down the pool
100m single arm L & R
100m kick on side one arm extended out
100m torpedo on side (no arms)
100m sighting with L & R arm extended
100m Fists
100m Catch up
100m 5 strokes per breath
100m Waterpolo (head out of water)
100m shoulder tap
100m thigh tap
100m elbow first recovery
100m underarm recovery

Still just doing the drills till I feel confident the shoulder has settled.

The main focus is the bike right now. I trying to go into tomorrow well rested - for a break through session on the turbo - fingers crossed.
