IOC 2017 - Relays
1st Leg with boyzone out 2nd and Magic on 3rd leg.
Got a bit worried on the way to 1, no one seemed to be climbing with me, but was confident in where I was going! Then on the long leg to 2 it seemed like i'd got the lead, so tried to run hard to extend it. Got 3 and 4 grand but made a balls of 5. Lost my lead here, c.hill arrived just as I hit it and I could see kev coming too.
Fast down the hill to 6 with kev going right. That got him ahead of me but caught him back up at 7 and just went right on by. Wasn't really keeping track of who was going where, was just focused on my own race. Had seen 10 earlier so not an issue. Then fast down the hill again to 11. Knew I was back in front and had a small gap.
Hit the road to 12 and tried to keep the pace up. Left ankle didn't seem to like the road so much. Then out into the open, getting 14 which was easy. Running was tough across to 15 which included the start of the climb to the spectator control. Back down then to the last control and the final push to the changeover.
Pleased enough with my pace but time lost on 5 should have been avoided. Still gave boyzone a gap.
Magic lost some time to Conor on the last leg but CorkO are champions again :-)
Good way to finish off the weekend. IOC 2017 in Galway was great.
