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!

Drill and some work at 65strokes a minute with the bleeper under the hat.

Flat out with the house and working on an essay - i've been sitting at the computer for the last 4 days solid - interesting work but am over it now.

The usual session - 250W x 5min x 4
Taking the cadence higher 95rpm

The higher cadence should put more stress on on the cardiovascular system and less on the body. (Thats the idea anyway)
