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!

36hour shift for work + very short staffed. On call overnight - zero chance for exercise.
Had my follow up orthopaedic appointment - I had been told I need a hip replacement and this was the confirmatory MRI. Looks like I still do - "he'll do one whenever i've had enough"

So the plan is to soldier on and try and get round this 10th Ironman - before going under the knife. Boo-hoo.

Weight loss more important than ever - need to pick a date to start that.
