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!

Woke with nasty achilles pain - depressing. Maybe it was the running flats last night? The felt much better at the time.
Had some acupuncture - painful, but much better after 5 mins or so. Did some light stretching of the calf.
It's my first day of annual leave - gardening and working on computer for work!
Decided to persist with the flat running shoes - it was the best run for a long time. A bit nervous about doing 4 times this in 3 weeks time. There will have to be a fair bit of walking. Could all this supportive foot ware be contributing?
