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!

(270W x 5min x 65-75rpm on 4min recovery) x 6

First two sets were a shock to the system - really difficult, heart rate straight up to 160 which usually only happens later on. I'd calibrated it wrong. Moving slowly towards 270Wx10min on 5min x3. I think the turbo causes the tight hip flexors which in turns has led to the running injuries - once I get to this goal i'm not going to push it too much more.
