Thursday Night was the first chance to try out the new wetsuit Orca 3.8. Fritton Lake was the location 400m lake swim ans 2.5km run. Very cold water 12 deg C, was 3rd out of the water and 2nd onto the run, finished 2nd overall. Not really up for the sprint stuff these days, hence Ironman training is a lot longer.
750m Swim / 20km Bike / 6km Run (should have been 5km)
Wow never seen so much rain before, it stopped rainy by the start thankfully, even colder water today, well it felt colder. A field of about 140 athletes all from different Emergency Services (Police, Fire, Ambulance, LifeGuards/Boat, Coastguard)
Awaiting final results online and splits hopefully

The Fire Service pulled off the Top spot winning overall and the top 5 fire service athletes won the team event. I finished top 10, I think I was about 6/7th waiting for overall results.
Travelling to Kent tomorrow for my 1/2 Ironman event on Sunday
1900 meter Swim / 56mile Bike / 13.2 mile run...................................
