Nice half marathon

Legs felt heavy from the start due to all the recent Ironman training. I managed to quickly get into my target pace but I knew within the first 2km that it would be tough to maintain. At 10km I was just on pace for a sub 1:20 finish.

Between 10km and 15km it started to get very hot with no shade along the Promenade des Anglais. At 15km the stomach cramps hit and I was instantly reduced to a walk. For the next 3 km I was walking and then for the final 3 km I managed to pick up the pace running bent over to relieve the cramps. I finished 155th out of 2940 with a time of 01:25:56 (88th out of 946 senior males).

A new Challenge race in the UK mid September next year! Would it be too much to do this and IMUK next year? http://www.challengehenley.com/

Thinking about main race targets for next year. How does this sound?... London marathon, Ironman UK and South Downs Way 100 mile (run).
