Post race
Warm down:

full sugar coke and coffee in Costa...post race recovery run the next day with Gillian (week 4 couch to 5k) - perfect

What limited your ability to perform faster:

still not recovered sufficiently from COVID to train effectively. Lack of bike and swim training.

Event comments:

As always, London a huge event. Well organised and lovely to have family support
