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!

The usual 250W x 5min on 3min recovery

Still finding it difficult to power away whilst thinking "i'm wearing my hip out". Today I started to think - better to wear it out and get a new one than do nothing. Anyway don't think I need to be so catastrophic about it.

I'm starting to debate whether normal pedals could be a good idea. On the spin scan the right leg (the bad one) is near perfect and always does a little more work than the left - maybe it's been helping the left all this time. There would be less chance of this with clip-less??? Also I think the body is more set up for pushing with the legs rather than pulling towards the body. That's where i'm at today.
