Victoria Half Iron

My goal today was to beat 5hrs in the Victoria Half Iron. I haven't been able to train much since my last race so I wasn't really expecting to be able to hit the target but I hung on to finish today in 4:59:24. Yep I had a whole 35 seconds to spare. Not bad! I even kept my pace up until the 12km mark of the run, then things went sideways for the next 8kms. It was a struggle to stay under the 5 hour mark but I'm happy that I did it.

Tammy raced today as well in the Sprint category and was 5th female overall (3rd in her age-group). She was done her awards ceremony before I was 1/2 way through my run.

More details to come later. Right now I need some recovery, sleep and I want bacon.
