The final full month of training before taking on Ironman UK in July. This month saw me complete my first Ironman event in Staffordshire as well as a family holiday in Menorca, a good week of relaxing and resting up ready for the big day.
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.
Having ran the Rock n Roll Liverpool 5k and marathon in 2017 and really enjoying both races as well as scoring a PB in both, I wanted to return this year to have another go at the 5k and try to set a new half marathon PB.
This is my write up from my 2 day ride around London. The London Revolution, this was a 300km ride starting in Enfield, stopping off at Windsor before returning to Enfield. Taking in some nice climbs in the north downs and chilterns.
Just two months until Ironman Staffs 70.3 and three until the big one, Ironman UK. April has been the month I have been building up to since starting back in November, two marathons.
