Christ, that river was cold! They claimed it was 17 degrees, but Alison (who was officiating) took a reading at the edge of the water and it was only 14 degrees! So it was sooooo much colder in the middle.
They give you 5 minutes to get in the water and get acclimatised… I didn’t acclimatise… I couldn’t feel my hands, feet or face! But we all survived.
I learnt never to let Alison do up my wetsuit. It didn’t rub, but I couldn’t undo the sodding thing! I entered T1 still fully done up!
It was a bit windy on the bike, but perfect cool conditions for the run.
Well done everyone, especially Kath who has a bad knee but still managed run slowly and complete it. Hopefully next year her knee will be fine and she can smash this years time.
