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!

300W x 65rpm x 5min x 4 on 5min recovery
added a final 2mins in the name of progression

It was a really hard session, and didn't feel any easier than last time. The heart rate data shows some improvement - same work slightly lower heart rate.

The red line is 2 weeks ago the blue line today. If I didn't have that i'd be in the dark as to whether I was improving. 
I had everything ready to go as soon as Will decided to have his nap!

Still some problems with the right leg. It's mainly a problem going over the top of the stroke - so raised the saddle which I think helped.
