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!

After taking George to his disabled swim I took part in the parkrun in Brockwell park - It's hard to get there on time so I just trotted around with someone who was also late. This time I ran back home also to make it a 10km day. The new harder roller (see Thursday's entry) is making a difference and the achilles didn't protest either.

I highly recommend checking out parkrun - it's 5km and free. There are dozens all around the UK and it's about personal improvement for all abilities rather than a highly competitive race.
