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!

Core (AM)

Woke early and did my core exercises (McMillan running) bicycle crunches instead of the swiss ball ones as don't have a ball.

Turbo (PM)

15min warm up
2 x 20min x 260W x 85-90rpm on 7min recovery

Woke up early and so got the core stuff out of the way. 12 hour day at work again - on feet all day so didn't know what to expect on the turbo - watched the London Nocturne racing on 4OD which I think helped - penny farthing racing!

The heart rate was right where I wanted it to be - at 154bpm by the end. Still lopsided on the bike, maybe I should just accept it and deal with it???
The red graph is today and the blue is back in March so there's some improvement. It was 7min recovery instead of 5 because the trainer reset itself for some reason.
