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!

- Registration - in a different place this year (should have read the instructions!)
- Bike racking
- Transition bags in - always difficult at Bolton as it's a split site with T1 and T2 30mins drive apart.
Met Paul James in transition, another doctor who I used to work with. He is doing his first.
This always takes a lot longer than I expect. Much of this is due to me not having much in my transition bags anymore and as a result thinking I must have forgotten something.
For the future
Bike bag - helmet, race number, asthma spray/meds
Run bag - hat, shoes, socks, (camelbak)
