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!

2.5km straight.
Last 1km as 5 strokes per breath.

I seem to be favouring a return to some more endurance based sessions. 40 lengths of 5 strokes per breath is new ground for me. I'm amazed how it started off as very difficult and after about 20 lengths became fairly natural.

I am starting to understand my shoulder issue on the left - it seems to be about turning off the overactive pec - this is going to take some work.
