TAR - great to hear from you and well done on your "podium" spot - v impressive! A minute quicker than last year too! Impressive form....
Nice reps Leslie and yes, I'd have smashed it! Few weeks of recovery / holiday now before OtillO. Hoping the broken up nature of running and swimming will enable me to cover the 40miles of running without crumbling - tight cut offs and a team partner piles the pressure on a bit!
How is everybody today?
Had a bad time personally and had serious back problems on the run and ended up with a run leg over an hour longer than usual and was mostly shuffling.
11:22 total and probably my last IM race - about time I listened to my body and eased off a bit
Really gutted for you Moof - I was looking out for you all day and wondered why I couldn't see your result
Very mixed day for me
1:07 steady swim
5:16 bike - felt great and came off the bike 4th in age group and in the 20s overall I think
5 miles into the run my hip started playing up and my back seized up - had to jog/walk with lying down to stretch every couple of hundred metres - ended up just walking with my hands on my thighs as though climbing a mountain (it is flat). 4:52 or so for the run giving a total time of 11:22
Not overly happy - enjoyed the bike but I think my running days are nearing an end sooner than I thought
Right - off for some beer!
