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!

2hours 20mins 6.7km (PB)

The target was 8km tonight - the pool changed configuration a couple of times which made it difficult so I was happy to just get the time in. It's great to do these longer swims as there's a chance to work on aspects that I normally neglect. For instance, I don't normally have much of a kick but after an hour or so I focused on that, and found it's not so difficult after all. After the 10km swim I hope to do a long swim like this every so often.
