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!

11 weeks to go
72.7kg 14.9% fat


50km road

Managed to get out for a couple of hours.

Great weather. Still uncomfortable from the right hip. Averaged around 30km/hr fairly easy.

Probably the best run for a long time. No pain.

So 11 weeks to go. There's lots of work to do - the main goal is to get pain free which will mean some trips to the physio. Also need to get the weight down; I was 66.9kg 6months ago so have put on a fair bit. I think the target for race day (if I make it) is 69.9Kg and 9.9%, so about 0.5kg a week.
