The training summary updates have gone missing the past two months so here is a recap of August and September 2008. August was obviously in the midst of ChesapeakeMan training and also included a 10-day trip back to Europe. September was split into the end of Ironman training and a taper for the actual race.

All in all the training worked out well and enabled me to place 2nd at ChesapeakeMan in just over 10hours. It was a shame that the puncture probably kept me away from the sub-10 time but that for next year!
