wesome live feed on here
Swim: set off last in my wave and I was petrified....had a "moment" then I had a brainwave and decided to swim with my eyes closed and I was off! Mentally I was in the pool so no fear at all and I just opened my eyes occasionally to sight. Ended up enjoying it.
Bike: I had my trainers and my cleats in my T1 bag so I made a split second decision to go in my trainers.....by golly it was hard work. Serves me right. It was a very lonely 2nd lap and I ended up walking up the big hills. I spent 13 mins of the 8hrs 10 at food stations/toilets etc ..should have tried harder really.
Run: started trotting but very tired. At the half way stage I found a new pal and so we walked and talked and staggered a bit. Thoroughly enjoyed the run, great support. Was a bit miffed that I couldn't reach the bell in the town.
After I said "never again" but I'm already thinking about next year
