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!

Commuting cycling 1hour

Chain came off fixed wheel going down hill - locked the back wheel and wore a massive spot of rubber of my solid wheels - the back one is now like riding a square wheel - I am thankful I didn't go flying.

Shopping for last minute things -
e.g. CamelBak (i'm going to make sure I get the protein in as I go round to recover quicker for Spain)
Changed chain on bike - last time took 2hours this time 20mins
Changed tyres to heavier puncture resistant
Checked everything out
Got back cracked by the chiropractor - weird feeling
Spent afternoon with family. Will wanted to go into the local church!
