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!

This didn't go as well as usual. Aiming to do the usual 5min at 300W session. I managed the first 2 sets and struggled after that. I thought I had a bit of sore throat but it is fairly minor, my heart rate was normal etc,. Also think it was too close to the gym on Monday. I'm going to have to plan these more carefully so I go into them fresh.

Other things going on:
I've been researching apps out there for GPS navigation on the phone (trail running). It can all get quite expensive as you have to pay for the maps on top. I ended up getting motionX GPS - it's only £1.49 and the maps are open source (free)!

Some rollers arrived today. I've always wondered about them - I had a brief go and it was a shock - very difficult to keep balanced. I love having a new challenge - there's no chance of getting a picture of me on them yet!
