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!

15min warm up
4 x 5min x 300W x 65rpm on 5min recovery (Strength Endurance)
I managed 4mins of the 5th set, had a few minutes break and did the last minute.
10min cool down and cold bath

I could have just squeezed that last minute out but I opted to play it safe and leave myself somewhere to go for next time. This was two minutes more than last time, there will definitely be a training effect which is the goal.

The red graph is from 26th Jan and the blue is today - its good to see the peaks come down for the same work load. 

I was in two minds about doing this session today - i've now done interval training wed,thur,fri. so time to back off.
