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!

Slow long run - Ran the last 20miles of the marathon course. Started at the kids bedtime so this meant running round Canary Wharf/Isle of Dogs at 10pm which was a bit bleak. I'm not sure exactly how far; somewhere between 32 and 35km. I was out for 3h30 and there were a couple of stops for "full fat" coke. I'd have liked to do 5.30min/Km pace but settled for the 6min/km that my legs wanted to do. Fairly comfortable, just a bit of right leg wanting to cross the midline which I think is the annoying TFL/ITB up to its usual tricks.
