Race time. D-Day -1. Final details. I'm race number 1547. If you so desire, you will be able to track me on the Ironman tracking app, or via the website using my name or race number. I think I've set it up so there will be links automatically on my facebook page. I've done the … Continue reading Final thoughts
In the words of Bruce Buffer .... "IT's TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME". Well, nearly. When I look back, whilst I have some target races in between which, in those moments have been the main focus (namely The Big Half and Mallorca 70.3), fundamentally I have been building to this race since the end of October.

There are still 18 days to go, and the page has only existed for less than 2 weeks, and the original target I set has already been reached. I don't even … Continue reading Fundraising update…

The culmination of the "build". After this, it was into taper. Friday had started well. A key swim set of 40 x 100m … Continue reading Can we just race now?
Where Mallorca 70.3 was preceded by a 50 mile TT two weeks out, the plan for Copenhagen had a 100 mile TT four weeks before race day. That was this past weekend.
