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!

Weight 71.4kg Fat 14.1%
I'll put these numbers up once a week, despite potential embarrassment. I raced Bolton this year at 66.9kg and about 8% so at least i'm floating better in the pool!


Managed the break through session today so really pleased
4 x 5min x 300W on 5min recovery
The heart rate monitor was playing up - maybe that was a good thing.
The next step is 5 sets which would be fantastic. Following that a reduction in the recovery time but that's a long way away. The majority of the final set was spent at 165bpm - this is new ground for me whilst cycling.

Run technique training at the track tonight - cold and wet - It's a good sign if you can do these irrespective of the weather. The theme was thoracic mobility along with all the usual skipping etc,
