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!

8 x 256m at 1m/sec on 1min recovery

Went to the "proper" council pool today - I think it's 32m hence the 256m - as that's 8 lengths. Came off the pace for the first 2 sets and thought this was a sign of my lack of speed work. Then the next 6 sets were relatively easy and bang on target. Pleased.

There were more serious swimmers there - I'm keen to go back.
