Last July my friend Louise and I decided to take on the challenge of completing an Ironman – a 3.8k swim, 180k cycle, 42k run, raced in that order and in one day. We were both members of the Galway Triathlon Club but I hadn’t yet completed any triathlons and Louise only a few short distance ones. However the idea of a challenge appealed to us both and the fact that it would be held on our doorstep sold it to us. I remember doubting whether I would be physically able to complete such a long event. We did some research, talked to some other more experienced triathletes, and picked out a 30 week training plan which we began in November.
