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!

Usual drills
Main set 6 x 200m at race pace on 25sec recovery
Total 2.5km

A long day today but managed to get down the pool - so I just thought i'd have a relaxed swim. I used the technique though of suspending judgement and decided to see what I felt like at the time. It worked really well. After the warm up I thought the motivation was there. So added another set of intervals making 6 today - the aim being to get up to 8 and then rethinking the direction. The shoulder exercises are working well as there was very little dicomfort. A good day.
