    For serious?

    I think it's time to focus on my running, I almost need to start again as I run very wonky, my plans for next year are: get faster!

    I agree but in fairness the swim has always been the easiest bit of wales if you look at times...

    Try and fail is ok, don't even try is weak - there are plenty of lifeguards of you need help!

    I know that 52 people were pulled from the swim, but there were a large number who walked away before or didn't make the cut off as well.

    Nearly 25% of the field dnf'd in total...

    It was hard going, but given that I haven't swum in the sea at all during training not impossible if you've done enough training (and get a little lucky not getting kicked to death in the mele)

    4.02 marathon at the end of IM Wales yesterday with lots of walking, changing shoes at 10k, off the back of not running more than 16 miles in one go this year...

    It has led me to wonder two things, one how fast could I go at the moment when fresh and secondly how I ran a 4.45 as my first marathon 3 years ago!

    I have a bit more faith in the marathon plans which don't prescribe 20+ mile runs..

    Yes I think they open later and I'd imagine some of the 500 people may have already signed up at the advanced entry this morning...

    Was 40th ish in my AG, so didn't bother going to the awards as that's a long way for it to roll down! I think an hour is almost undercooking it as the swim was so brutal, 3 of my friends did long course weekend and were all 25 minutes slower yesterday for the swim... At least they didn't half the swim like they did at Weymouth yesterday...

    Yep, that was/is me!

    Tough day, about 90% enjoyable with a few rough moments thrown in, the swim was very hard and I ended up using my legs a lot more than really planned, which resulted in trying to dial it back a bit on the bike but still getting full legs cramps at about mile 70 on the bike - so bad I had to get off and stretch/just wait while the cramp subsided...

    It's a hard course but the people around here are incredible!

    Top 10% of finishers can't be bad right?!
