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!

10km easy pace. Too nice a day to go to the pool or cycle indoors so I decided on a run along the river. I tried to focus on some of the technique that i've been learning on Monday nights - without looking too ridiculous. Finished the book "once a runner" - some great insights into what's involved in running a sub 4min mile.

The afternoon was spent working on an essay on intercultural medical education! It's interesting but has now got to the stage that i'll be glad to have it finished.
