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!

Weigh in 71.0kg - it's gone up, too much pizza at the party.


1.5km fairly easy - bit of drill etc, just for the mobilisation.

9 Weeks to go

am Rollers 30min Run 5km 30min

pm Same again rollers 30min run 5km

Will's 4th birthday party today so lots of running around with that. Felt a bit guilty training wish as Sunday is usually a volume day. I seem to be running better when it's off the bike - maybe because i'm warmed up.

Can't believe there's only 9 weeks to go!
