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!
- off road - used the ordnance survey map on bikehike.co.uk I ended up covered in mud, soaked, lost, chased by dogs etc Fun! At times the path completely disappeared and there were some tricky barbed wire jumps.
I typically gear up for an Ironman triathlon 11 weeks before - this blog follows the ups and downs of that process. Specific in depth articles on long distance triathlon can be found on my web site http://web.me.com/jkmoon/mysite/Triathlon.html
