what have I done.
I have only ever done 1 ironman distace race before. This year I decided to employ a coach to see what I could achieve. In the past I have relyed on other peoples training to get me there. Having had an achillies heel injury for the past 6months training will start slow. I have a 15hrs 15mins goal to beat from last time. Its the same race so easier to compare times.

4th run

smartiepeteby smartiepeteApr 7th 2013
ok. so i have done my 4th run/walk. I think that makes my running last week, to match my usual anual running. As you can probably guess I am not really a runner. When I first started triathlons I was mainly a cyclist. My aim was to improve my swimming and running. I think I have done ok on swimming. from not being able to swim crawl at all in 2004 I can now swim 4k in 1.5 hrs.
The running, well, I have never done enought to enjoy running. I never used to stretch properly and hence would get injured. So to have achieved my anual runnning distance within one week (and not breaking). I am feeling pretty chuffed. I obviously have a long way to go to be able to cover the marathon distance. I guess we will see. I guess there is hope for anyone. and definately run/walking is the way to go.
