Entering the Ironman Zone

"I am now in the Hawaii Ironman Zone" is what has just been announced to me this evening!

Should I be scared? What can I expect? What is The Zone?

Well. Will let you know once I have experienced it. Guessing the Hawaii Zone wont be much different to other Ironman Zones I have experienced in the past.

More training, better diet, attempting to avoid the winter lurgies, early nights, re-watching of every Hawaii Ironman race to date, serious study of training plans and revision of days training, numerous triathlon gadget discussions (remind me why an SRM is worth that much!?!) and the ongoing countdown to D day!

I better get in The Zone too!

Better get training....I mean writing!

It has been a while...

Don't know why it has taken me this long to get writing again. I guess after the build up to and experience of China and then the celebrations following, I was triathloned out  - if that's a word!?

Now, we have hit under 100 days to the BIG one and things are starting to rev up at home.

Serious training program is in progress, diet is becoming important again and the past years Hawaii IM dvds are dusted and being played regularly.

A few weeks ago, it was announced that China Ironman will no longer be on Hainan, instead it has moved to the mainland. This was disappointing for us, as if we ever planned to return at least we would have had some knowledge on the race and the locations. Now all the information I logged, to eventually post on this blog, is obsolete. However, I think it may still be useful to some if I post a page on the experience of China with a  few general tips  - will get my head into this soon.

So for now, just wanted to sign on to say I am back and writing and to watch this space - subscribe now so you can follow our Hawaii IM journey!
