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!

Preparation day for Spain in London

Cycled george to nursery in Christiana - a joy to do a different type of cycling.
Massage with Roberto - great that he fitted me in as straight after he was of to Stratford to give his attention to some proper athletes.
Speedo shop for some big googles
Asics shop for some trainers - my half size bigger experiment in Bolton (return others to amazon - saw someone get mugged whilst queuing in the post office. Further evidence to leave London)
Box bike - wow, only took an hour, for Hawaii it was a whole day. This time I had all the foam etc labelled and knew I could get away without dismantling the aerobars completely. 
Weighing luggage - ditching non-essential stuff - easyjet!
Picked George up early to take him for an eye appointment he was very good with his eye drops.
