but anyway, here we go
Official target, break down:
Swim 2.6km - 39.00
T1 - 3.00
Bike 120km - 4.20.00
T2 - 3.00
Run 22km - 1.44.30
Based on last year's results, this would place me top 15 though this isn't a heavily attended race with 50 people last year and a huge disparity in times from 5.5hrs to nearly 10hrs.
How I came up with the target:
Swim - break down by 100m, I want to go 1.30's slightly below Ironman target of 1.35's
Bike - break down by km, target 2.10 which is the same as Ironman goal and slightly below the 2.18's I did at Ballbuster duathlon given the amount of training I've done since and the duathlon course was more hilly
Run - 4.45 per km, well within the 5.30 target for IM given this run is half the distance and less hilly and more or less in-line with time run at Ballbuster given similar run distance and factoring training plus the fact that I'll be more tired on this run given the distance beforehand than I was at Ballbuster.
Transitions - wild guess, the results from last year don't show transition times, so who knows
It'll be interesting given the roads won't be closed to cars or the local wild life!
