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!

Monday weigh in! 71.5kg 13.1% moving back in the right direction after Christmas.

I haven't done any core work for a couple of months. I did my usual routine (from Greg McMillan) which was surprisingly OK. Will was asleep and George for the most part tried his best to imitate - this could be an avenue worth exploring with him - the main barrier is not surprisingly his attention span.

Run technique
We really rattled through the various drills we've learnt. I'm glad I signed up to this as it has forced me to go to the track on a cold winter's night.
I forgot we also did some core exercises - I tried to keep a low profile as it's the first time my abdominals have involuntarily cramped up.
