We were up at 04:15 for a quick porridge in the tent, ablutions and then bike racking at 05:00 and down to the lake ready for a 06:00 start of the double ironman. Weather is being kind to us this year and we have calm and mild conditions. The water is not too cold – well for British people anyway, there was one poor guy from India who is used to swimming in water at 25oC.
They .set off and apart from confusion regarding the counting procedure and all was well. Swimming laps under way..
