I found it really hard. The wind was terrible. My time was similar to last years which was annoying. I struggled with hammy cramps through the run. My category's (90kg fat boys) averegae times were 5 minutes quicker than last year's.
How did anybody else go?

I was expecting around 2:33 to 2:37, so happy with that result. It's the second time I've ever swum 1500 metres and only my fourth open water swim (other thant the Bribie series), so the whole goal of the swim was just to get to transition still in good nick for the bike, which I was. I think it was 1:13 or so for the bike, and mid 41s for the run.
Haven't done anything at all over 2 hours since the floods in Jan, so the wheels came off a bit in the last couple of km, but a good honest effort just off base load rather than specific program.

Pretty happy with how we went as a first attempt, lots of fun, great atmosphere and keen to try again next year - maybe the whole thing myself?
