5th at Busso

In a "quick" trip over to WA for the weekend I finished 5th at the Busselton Half Ironman. The race was always going to be challenging, having finished 3rd at the Australian Ironman only 5 weeks prior.

I had a slow start in the swim but rode well to come off the bike in equal second place. The run was then one of mixed emotions, starting well but fading in the second half, to be overtaken by some girls who were running strongly. I came across the line in 4 hours 32 minutes in fifth place.

I'm not sure if I was fighting something off at the time but I now have an awful cold so I'm going to have a bit of a break and then plan some more events!
