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!

250m warm up
20 x 100m (1min 36s) on 25sec rest
Cool down + some fly and back stroke

The whole gang was there - so pretty congested and sociable at the lane end. Luckily I was 3/4 done before everyone arrived so had some time to catch up with everyone's news.

Last time I did 16 sets and so upped it to 20. The aim being to get to 38 (Ironman distance) The bleeper in my hat was set to 25 sec but for once found it a bit slow - I may move it down a notch. That's why it was 1min 36 and not 1min 40.

Spent a fair amount of time cycling with Will today as well - he wasn't too impressed with the weekly shop taking up his leg room! He managed to find the chocolate cookies on the way back too.
