Then we headed out on the bike loop, you can just see Ali in the background getting on her bike, she came past me as I was trying to get my shoes on as I decided to attach them to the bike, I didn't think running uphill in my road shoes would work very well so I ran in my socks. It took me a while to get past her again but after that I didn't see her on the bike. It was a hard ride with the head wind on certain parts making it really hard. I was pleased to have an average speed of 16.6mph on the bike.
Ali caught me in the last third of the run, neither of us were finding the running easy at that point. We continued to the finish crossing the line together.
I really enjoyed it, so I apologise to Carolyn, thanks for talking me into it. I'll definetly be back next year, but this time I will try and do some more run training.
