35th is a great placing, and a great way to end your season!


Cheers,
Without knowing how long my swim took, may have cost me a few seconds, if I knew I was slower than previous years, I may have tried to go quicker and blow up too soon, come out faster, and you wonder if the fatigue will hit.
Slightly slower than previous years, not by much, but I haven't trained for speed yet, legs on the run took a while for them to stop being Bambiesque, so went faster on the run, but without chasing the clock, slower, but not much.

AstroTurf is fine, I just used someone's towel to brush the sand off, :lol: :lol: ,no, I couldn't bring myself to even use someone else's towel for that.

Always wave at the man with the camera.

Good effort on the race Jon, sounds like you stormed the bike. I definitely agree with you about flat courses not necessarily being easy; I don't like sticking to one position on the bike. Problably why I haven't attempted any TTs :lol:

Brilliant end to the season :D

So Jon were you adopting a Hindu hand gesture possibly Lord Shiva, the Destroyer? http://www.artoflegendindia.com/images/ ... anesha.jpg
It seemed like a good idea at the time :? .

Good result then. We can become so accustomed to gadgets and pace/timings that it can be very difficult when it doesn't work (in my experience anyway). It is surprising how closely/better we can perform when we have to judge on feel alone. Sounds like you did well if you were only slightly slower than previously, but without speed training.
