Now that Ironman is in the past it is time to get cracking with marathon training once again. My two autumn marathons in Chicago and New York City are fast approaching and I have some BIG goals to hit this year.
This is my first full distance Ironman event having only previously taken part in a GoTri, one sprint distance and last months IRONMAN 70.3 STAFFORDSHIRE.

This is my recap of my time at Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire. This was my first middle distance triathlon and first Ironman event, I was using this race as a bridge between the sprint distance and full Ironman which I am taking on next month.
After mostly concentrating on running during April, this month is all about build up the biking and swimming once again. I have four running races and one 300km cycle sportive to help keep the training interesting.
The second race of the day and the second time I have ran the Great Manchester 10k. Two years ago this was my very first race, I turned up with probably 5 training runs under my belt and never ran the distance before. This time around I was turning up having ran a half marathon PB in the morning over in Liverpool and over 2,500 miles of running in the legs.
