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!

I haven't written anything for 14days!

Two things;
1. I had the flu for a week and this has been followed by a cough that I haven't been able to shift for another week. Not good. I've been swimming a few times and despite not pushing it it's set me back each time.

2. I had my appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon and the x-ray report of my hip came back. Bottom line - left side normal, right side some arthritis which the surgeon said was my age. Anyway, i'm glad I looked into it and am giving some thought into what this means.

2km Drill - still keeping up the backstroke and butterfly. It's getting easier. No breaststroke as it involves too much external hip rotation.
