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!

Early! Only person there so got some great advice. The "downward dog" will never be the same again.


9pm on the treadmill. Quick warm up then,
10 x 2min x 9km/hr x 14-15% gradient on 60-75sec recovery

A long day looking after George and Will so needed the run. In and out of the gym in 40mins - not bad. It's probably placebo but I get the feeling that the yoga has improved my run technique. I backed off the gradient 1% after a couple of repeats as there was a little too much stretch on the achilles.

Had an excuse to finish off all the hot cross buns in the cupboard.
