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!

Recovery post Ironman UK

Here's where it will get interesting. Very sore and difficult to imagine doing another in 6 days. I just concentrated on getting my legs up and eating plenty. I used my compex machine in it's recovery mode (an electric muscle twitcher!) I haven't used it for this before and it really did work - for an hour or so after the fatigue was markedly reduced. Long drive from Bolton to Mansfield and then down to London - hard work in itself.
