Absolutely shattered! Never walked before during a run but had no choice today, twice I had to stop!
This challenge is draining me, I'm running on empty.
Hit the wall at 6.5 mile, shed 15,000 calories in 3 days and haven't ate enough!
I have failed in the nutrition part!

The same mistake a certain Lance Armstrong made during the Texas IM. Feed up, Lee!

I needed to break the back of the cycling to concentrate on my worst discipline, swimming! However, I think this ride broke my back instead :/
Anyway that 2850 calories I have to eat so far today :P

Jed D Ironman triathlon in 5 days Challenge

Contributorsilver Jed D Day 3 and I have been very unorganised leading me to not eat the right stuff, ended up eating lots of sugary stuff when feeling sluggish or hungry. This was detrimental to both my training and my concentration at work. So lesson learnt and going to sort my meals the evening before
