Good day out for the race - had a lot of fun - Took 30 minutes of planning (probably too long!) - botched the first point by not reading the opening time but that s okay it was still on route so pushed on.
Emma smashed out the SUP but admitted she wished I had done it when she got back as she was terrified of falling in and her leg had the shakes the whole way on the SUP after running down mounts bay road.
after that it was pretty smooth until the bull riding - which just before getting on I did something to my ankle/Achilles (nothing like ShaneL but was a massive issue for me for the rest of the day and still in a fair bit of pain now)
After that was fairly straight forward up until we had to find the roaming point - the person was a tool and a pain but we got the day eventually and moved on.
Interesting we beat the 2nd all male racing team in but we didn't make the mixed top places (that didn't surprise me beating #2 all male did!) So interested in seeing the results whenever they get published.
As always toe nails at giving me grief (yes i know tash rip it off) BUT NO BLISTER PAIN WOO. even with me compensating massively with my right ankle issue.
Emma was knackered by the end but definitely put up a good fight she went harder than I thought she would!
Not much more to say - stupid training program starts next week - time to start getting my head in the game!
