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!

5min warm up
20min at 15km/hr
5min recovery
2 x 75sec x 18km/hr on 3min

Another 12hr day at work and on my feet for most of it. Wanted to do a time efficient session.
Pace wise on the treadmill i'm just feeling around for the right intensity. The 15km/hr is half marathon pace and was comfortable. I want to start doing some speed work and know that 19km/hr is 5min mile pace which is ultimately where i'd like to aim for - so just taking it into that territory. The sauna was closed which I was really looking forward to after all that.
