Ah well. NACC Duathlon comes around and the juniors for their wee course are set off with the elites. How at 52 I end with the elite class is a mystery but I came 6th which is pretty good considering the class of the elite field which even though few in number were top athletes. The rest of the folk in the event were all pretty well broken by the course which was a 4 mile XC run then 10 mile very hilly mountain bike followed by a further 3 mile run. The final run was painful but after only 60 minutes at pulse averaging 163bpm with a max of 180 it was over.
