The start was fast but not crazy and I was feeling pretty good early up near the leaders but by half way a couple of younger guys took off and I started to fall of the back of Tom. Tom went on to narrowly miss 3rd place and finish 4th, Bartlett ran hard early and hung on for 5th, I staggered home in 6th just ahead of Aussie mile record holder Lisa Corrigan and 4th HuRTS man Binfield. My time was 4:43, pretty average but we won the team event and celebrated with too many beers. It's amazing how painful a short event like that is, I even had "lactic forearms" at the end which is weird, not sure what that's about but I guess the pain has to go somewhere.
Saturday saw trip to Melbourne to watch the Aus v Wales rugby match and Meinir sing the Welsh national anthem. Big moment for her, bit of a dream job really so she was a bit nervous. A group of us went down to watch, great singing, great game.
