Welcome

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!

Swim

10km race. Very different from a triathlon start - completely civilised, no flailing arms etc, I think everyone just wanted to stay out of trouble.

The venue at Eton school's rowing lake needs to be seen to be believed. The course itself was 5 laps. Visibility was fantastic - you could follow a rope all the way which gave it a pool swim feel! Took a gel and drink from a pontoon every lap.

I hadn't got a clue what my time was - ended up do 2h 54min. I couldn't have asked for more. I had some pain in my right flank that came and went which I think was from not rotating enough with the right shoulder.
