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!

Thought i'd make a quick note - it's a common question to be asked _ "how long does it take to recover". Well today I feel back to normal (that's 8days). Recovery is a complicated subject and true recovery/adaptation both physical and mental may take far longer. However the aches, pains, energy levels and appetite are back to normal.
