What a day, tough conditions and after 50kms or so my legs started to feel the impacts of having not run for 5 weeks. Achilles held together just fine, but my quads were agony for the last 30kms so I held it together and finished (very) slowly in 10:05. Nearly an hour slower than last year but with the injury issues I was just happy to bag my 7th finish.
Saw Jacky on the route, twice I think and many others at the airport etc. Just back to the UK today, rest this week then the Ironman training starts again!
