So I went and had a play. 5 weeks between IM races (last one was Outlaw) maybe too short a gap - but that was always a possibility and Vichy fitted in well. Swim being non wetsuit was fine, bike was good and the run was run / walk from the start as, to put it politely, my guts didn't want me to go running. 11 hrs 32 overall, which - taking all the circumstances into account, I'm pretty happy with.
Both the bike (109 miles on my Garmin) and the run (25 miles) were short. I wasn't sad at the time but with hindsight it's a bit disappointing.
I was the only person running in yellow and black. The support was immense. To anyone who shouted anything at me - thank you.
