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 5min x 250W x 85rpm on 3min recovery

This was the first proper turbo since 30th January! Easing back into it - over 4 weeks of illness. The first 1min of the 5min intervals ramped up slowly instead of the usual stepwise change (looking after the hip!?)

Spent the morning at a hospital exercising patient's on an exercise bike to see how risky major surgery would be. It's called CPEX testing - I think seeing the patients struggle motivated me to get on with it.
