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!

200m x 9 on 40sec recovery at 1m/sec pace

25m pool tonight instead of the usual 20m so a good opportunity for some race pace work. I'm not sure whether to increase the distance as I've done previously or try and go faster - something to think about.
It was a great session, I've been swimming 2-3 times a week for 17 years now and this is the first time I felt I knew what I was doing, or rather what I was doing wrong and how I could correct it. The drill work is paying off.
