As I prepare for my first IronMAN Wisconsin, I'm planning the events I will do next year, 2016, that lead up to the BIG one.
Right now, I'm reviewing my past stats for the Half ironMAN I participated in several years back in Lake Geneva.
For the Wisconsin IronMAN there is a Do Not Finish (DNF) cut-off at 17 hours.
If I do the math, I will make the 17 hour cut-off.
Here's my stats for the half-ironman:
- Swim: 48:17
- Bike: 3:58:48
- Run: 2:18:03
- Total time: 7:05:08
Now if all goes well, I train well, and I don't tucker out and I stay on track;
This is what my projected results could be on September 11th, 2016:
- Swim:1:36:34 (cut-off 2 hours)
- Bike: 7:37:36
- Total time: 14:10:16
These are just numbers, and I have to baseline where the numbers fall, by practicing; running a marathon, riding the distance on the bike, and swimming the waters, at different times, adjust the numbers that show that I can make these times.
As we athletes all know, numbers don't tell all. There are a number of environmental, physical and emotional elements that factor into this, and I will write about this along the way, adjusting the numbers in my stats and share them here, once discovered.
