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!

Core + Swim

Tried a new core routine for a change. Dug out an old book of core exercises and tried a few. Started with hanging windscreen wipers - have never been able to do them before so that was a first. Surprised I was able to do it. No room at the gym to try "candlesticks" so maybe next time.

Swim - drill again. Having a go at backstroke - not pretty.

Would have done a turbo today but think i'm going to limit a bit and work on the tight hip flexors?
