Well done to Simon Marshall, what a absolute superstar! Simon finished his day after 10hrs 47mins of what seems to be pure hell on the Big Island…. Swim: 1:20:24 || Bike: 5:35:17 || Run: 3:45:16 || Overall: 10:47:56
I had. Swim navigation was hopeless, some suggested course long, but I don’t think they would mess that up, bike was, well I’m laughing to myself, thinking about it, I remember looking down and seeing 13.4 kmh and doing 252 watts on the flat, a tad windy! Rolled the dice on the run and had a stormer until Palani hill, and then had major issues after that. Dehydrated and had a few big “exorcist moments” 6k from home’. I think the dehydration part says a lot considering this is a man who trains in the desert and loves the heat!
