Wind? What wind???

OMG! and WTF!!! I am pretty sure now, that the Spec Savers 70.3 Half Ironman cannot surprise the Embark athletes no matter WHAT weather conditions prevail! Today, on my way to the swim at Clifton 4th beach, i was driving and got over taken by a piece of broken off branch being blown  along the road! Gusts of over 70kms. So go figure, we go swim! To top it off the water temperature is slightly under 10 degrees.

But, put all that aside, we had a great turn out at the swim, and it can only make us mentally stronger to know that we can train and survive in those conditions. Its incredible to the see the athletes just getting on with it, focused on the final goal of completing the race. I am very proud of all of them. Look out for us at the V&A canals tomorrow morning. We are doing our big brick on Sunday, 40kms ride/5kms run/40kms ride/5kms run! Yip its a big week!
