Definitely feel like I need to get fitter, this was tough.
Started ok and ended up in 3rd place after the start. Got a gap to the next group soon enough. 1st pulled away but 2nd I was behind until the start of the 2nd lap. At this stage I was feeling the pace and was checking over my shoulder often.
There was a touch headwind from the start up to Killarney House which I really didn’t like. 2nd time up was tough as was the 3rd, that was worse. Last time was ok as had a bit of people dodging to distract me.
Did scare 2 people on the 2nd lap as I went through the large gap between them. A couple of volunteers smiled at it, I smiled, but not sure the chap being passed did.
Got to the finish eventually and made the podium. Will need work to get higher as need to find at least a minute. A few weeks of uninterrupted training would help. Arms also felt tired pushing the buggy, I suppose Erik gets heavier every week. A few people again asked if they could get a push.
Despite the pain it was a PB with the buggy. Set virtual partner to 4 min/km.
