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!

2 hour cycle round the country lanes with people from "stan's cycles". Second trip out with a colleague Mark who is training for his first Ironman (Outlaw - Nottingham).

Still getting getting stick from the right leg. Feels like it just wants to be straight all the time - lowered the seat a fraction. Hoping to go out with the tri people tomorrow - i'm going to change to speedplay cleats and see if it helps.

Mark and I are equally bad on the rollers - I managed to cycle off them twice.

The weight is drifting down - about 0.5kg this week. It was stubborn at first but then seemed to move. Am hoping I don't have to resort to calorie counting.
