|3m run to start|
Unfortunately, despite flat calm seas on the day, due to an accidental sewage spill in the area the day before, the swim was pulled and replaced with a 3 mile run to proceed the bike and proper run. That was a bit of a setback but with such a good atmosphere and organisation, soon sorted!
|One of the climbs|
I paid for this on the start of the bike leg which immediately climbed from the coast into the hills around Betws-y-Coed. For the most part the bike leg was stunning and felt great. Steep ascents and descents, a total of 1,300m climbing.
|A very wet return|
Fortunately the rain blew over and with a complete change of clothes (and socks), the two lap, 13mile run went pretty well!
|Crossing the finish line!|
I felt pretty strong at the finish, with a run time of 2hours 9mins which I was pleased with to give me an overall time of 6 hours 31mins which bode very well for the Ironman cut of times.
All in all, a really good event and great preparation for Ironman Weymouth! :-)
