Isle of Man - half Iron man ( first in 3 years) done. Had several goals - smash the swim / beat god daughter Lucy’s time from last year ( 6hr 49) / get a 3 hr 30 bike & a sub 2 hr 30 run.
Swim 🏊♂️ 30 min 15 / T1 3min 10 / Bike 🚴♀️ 3hr 33 / T2 2 min 21 /
Run 🏃♂️ 2hr 20
Total 6hr 28 😎
God daughter Lucy was kept at bay for swim & bike but took me 2 miles into the run & didn’t look back. Smashed her own pb & got 6 hr 15 min.
Other things to say about the event
- incredibly well organised, good info sent out, cheap - think I paid around £60, beautiful island.
- event staged in the north (Ramsey). Swim superb for those worried as you can actually stand up in the sea water lake ( 2.5 laps ) Bike course amazing ( 2 loops) 2 significant climbs but very manageable on a TT bike, Run around Ramsey along the promenade, so very scenic by the sea. Good food stations, very lovely Marshall’s. Nice medal & excellent t shirt. Relatively small field, only 60 competitors & only 2 from mainland - hope that helps your report. Headline
