First even in my new pirate kit yesterday - and 35 minutes off my middle distance PB. Must have been the outfit!
Great to meet those pirates who were racing - I need to practice my "argggggh"s, and I also need to realise that trying to do one when ripping the top off a gel with your teeth is best left to experienced pirates!
Race went well - got out of swim without drowning, which is the usual measure of success. Hit the bike fairly hard, and survived the two hills in the middle - for all it looked cool to start with, it certainly warmed up, and I needed the extra bottle I grabbed from the feedstation. Run was far better than usual - I was actually able to hit it fairly hard, and got under 2 hours for the run, even with two jaffa cake stops.
OK, next up is the Outlaw. See you all there!
