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!

S&C (Strength and conditioning)
- Stretching, TRX and Core work.

1km drill - one arm, fists, catch up, sighting left and right.

Had a 12.5 hour day at work so not much time to do anything. By mid-day my right side (bum and back) was aching badly. So aim was to see whether anything would improve it.
Found my right hamstring is a lot weaker than my left (doing hamstring curls - feet in straps back on floor) which I seem to remember from a few years ago when I did some similar exercises (swiss ball).
Lots of quad stretching
Some yoga pigeon to hit the bum/piriformis - left side much worse than right.

Swim was great - quickly got in the zone and loved it.
