I (Aimee) have done the sprint distance at Ragley Hall before, but never the standard distance. Since Julian was doing the longer distance (he did it in 2015 as well), I thought I would give it a go.
The swim is shorter than a normal standard, as it is only 1300m. But the bike is long!!!! I didn’t realise how long until the night before! I was not amused. But it is a surprisingly nice route. I will be doing it again next year.
The run was painful… Julian was a sensible boy and put on socks. God I wish I did! I finished very slowly with no much skin on my heels. Next year think socks!
Julian was 1 minute slower than his time in 2015, but the run route has changed since then. It is now 1k longer! So next year he has no excuses to not beat his time!
Thanks for the Iron Ladies (Alison and Emma) for coming to support us… I could hear them shouting our names as I was swimming and I had ear plugs in!
