Thanks John, there is a great picture of me as well although I am moving so fast I'm a blur ;). I think that shot is around 6 minutes in, and I am head down and broken :)

The whole event is still a bit of a blur, it's only looking back at it that I realise how much I was affected post race with I my hearing and thought processes being impaired. So sorry to anyone I deafened and confused.

I went back at lunch time to watch the open races, I underestimated the number of people who would be watching so couldn't see Olivier, which was a shame. The racing was very impressive but you are slightly too far away with the track between you and the action.

Since the race I have done three gentle sessions, as I'm still feeling the after effects. I aim to get back into a more formal pattern next week, but Christmas is fast approaching so that may dent those aspirations.

Thanks everyone for the support and the great write ups of your day. I will be back next year where I should finish higher (if only because there were only 8 entries in the 50-54 LWT men this year), but I will need to beat my PB to not come last so that will be a good challenge.

Piers - Hope you stay in touch with the PP thread or the training thread. I'd enjoy cyber training with you since our training times are so similar. I'd be curious what your post PP / BIRC training plans are. Take the necessary time off and let's get to work again after the first!

Cheers for finding those pics, not that flattering but pretty much sums up what the end of a 2k feels like :lol:

Pie man, one of the reason's I write up a 'blog' after a race is that during the writing, things that happen during the race 'pop' into more focus (rather than being a blur). Makes a good reference to refer back to. Feeling a bit drained the week or so after is 'normal' as well (well it is for me). Between the race and New year I generally just tick over so as to try and not lose fitness then start a 'New' programme in the New year. I'm planning that out at the moment.
