Our daughter Jane died from SUDEP & possibly from ours and her ignorance. Nearly half of all SUDEP deaths are avoidable. Stay Alive - Read On.

18 hours of pumping iron

I am extremely proud to report David completed his Celtman "ironman" triathlon in 18 hours and 36 minutes.  That is a lot of hard work from the 4am start and not sure many of us could stand that pressure.  The swim took just shy of 55 minutes, with the cycle ride 7 hours 47minutes and the run 9 hours 27 minutes.

I still can't get over it - 18 hours of very hard exercise over very touch terrain.

Last night, by comparison I was pleased to spend just 20 minutes on the treadmill!  I rewarded myself by sharing a box of chocolates.

I wonder how many boxes David would have consumed to recompense his calorie use after the event AND how many bowls of pasta consumed in the build up.
