After failing to complete Ironman Frankfurt my disappointment was to focus on another race. I decided on Monday after the race after discussion with my Wife to head to Wales and use Nirvana to secure a entry using the cheapest possible accommodation. This was based on the fact I needed a year off IM and drop down to half distance for a year and spend some time with the family.
My fitness levels had improved since UK Ironman in 2014 and after my swim and Bike in Frankfurt my thought is too go quicker that 11hrs in Wales. My training has simply to top up on what had previously been done and with the summer holidays in North Wales I can get some hill training around family time.
