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!

4 x 250W x 5min on 3min 125W recovery

Still spending most of my time sorting things out in the new house so this got done at 11pm. Psychologically it's tough going - with cause / result of my asymmetry on the bike now known (right hip arthritis) it's what i'm thinking about when I exercise now.
- Am I doing the right thing?
- Is this making it worse / better?
- Should I be attempting another Ironman - even with the goal of just doing it for the fun of it.
- How am I going to get the volume in safely
etc, etc,

My new thoughts on it are that poor ankle flexibility may have contributed - so ordering one of those rocker boards today.
