Darn it!
It was HOT ! VERY HOT today !

I am still perspiring after 5 hours. Burnt red and black and brown.

The swim was through choppy waters. The strongest I have encountered these 2 years. We were like buoys bobbing up and down with the waves. Phew ... survived.
How can it be 33 minutes? Definitely not 1.5 km distance. My aim not to drink sea water was foiled by the sea. Never bet against it. Drank at least 3 mouthful.
Cough Cough...yuck.

Cycling at 12 O'clock is not a good time to do so. Took 1 hr 45 minute to complete my circuit. But it drained the energy from me plus it was past lunch time. No wonder I felt so weak.

Bombed in the run. Cannot, chest strain. Pain.
Surprisingly my ass was ok.
Hmmm.. maybe because I wore padded shorts. But the run was a wash-out. I believe I walked one third of the 10 km run. Cannot make it. VERY HOT!

This event is worse than a Half M.

O My ... I'm glad it's over.
When I recover fully, then maybe I will smile a bit and laugh over it. Yehhh ...

My hat is off to you for doing what most of us could never even dream of doing.
