Woah! Just woke up from a 3 hour nana nap ! Maybe that classifies as a great grandma nap..
. that speed suit ruling was correct. Swim skins, if worn, may only be removed after the swim if it's a long course event. Sprint and Olympic must keep it on. The new ruling was effective December 2017. (Just read the rules 🤓)
well I managed to collect a few points. Just. not one of my favorite races and I was just going through the paces. Couldn't engage my mojo at all, even when a fellow AG competitor ran past me on the last lap it was - whatever.
in short - the swim The water temperature was 29 degrees - yuck. I did manage a 3 minute improvement on the swim - yes! ! But think it was more swimming straight than faster...
the bike - ran out of puff and water on the last lap of the bike.
The run - At the first water station saw an ambo working on a young guy writhing on the ground packing him with ice. That was it for me. Shuffled the rest of the way. Stopping at each water station - I was in heaven - icy cold water over the head- bliss.
back to sprint training 👏💪
