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!

9 weeks to go

5km - my best long distance swim so far. Held my technique and felt strong right to the end. This time next week it'll be the 10km! the news is that the temperature will be cold. It'll also be the first wear of the wetsuit this year so that side of things could be interesting. I've ordered a wetsuit cap and gloves as the organisers have recommended it.

Jumped on the scales today - first time for 2-3 weeks. I thought it'd be bad news but was surprised to find it bang on 70kg. With 9 weeks to go it's time to start thinking about loosing a Kg or 2 so at least there's not as much as I thought to do.
