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!

Other commitments toady so no time to train. My new roller arrived though so the boys helped me with some massage!

I have discovered a few things about these rollers - it seems the softest ones are white, the next up are green/blue and the hardest ones black. It's much cheaper than a massage and can help prevent a lot of niggles and injuries. There is virtually no area that can't be worked on with a little imagination. I would start with the white one if you're new to it. It quickly gets less painful after a week or two!
