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!

1 x 5min x300W x 90rpm - 4min recovery
1 x 5min x 300W x 90rpm - 5min recovery
then 2 x 2.5min x300W x90rpm

Will was asleep so snatched a quick session on the turbo. After the breakthrough session last time I decided i'd be happy with 3 sets of 5mins. I thought i'd experiment with only 4min recovery after the first and this made the second much harder.
The third was almost impossible (I had to split this in two!) I found the calibration was off making it 10% harder.
All in all a little bit messy.
So, too ambitious with the reduction in recovery times.
