thought i should be brave and talk about my race targets for this one.
i decided to enter this race shortly after Kona 2007, which coincided with the end of season review and goal setting period. here is what i wrote in my diary at that time as targets for WI:
this was based on analysis of qualifying times for the fastest age group women, over the last 3 or 4 years and what i thought i could do in relation to these performances.
a 10:18-ish would typically win my age group (because of the proportionally smaller field and fewer slots for women, the stats don't work brilliantly for us)
at the same time i set my targets for IM Germany as :
actual results were
swim 60 ( short course for sure)
so better than i'd hoped for at the start of the season.
Dare I adjust the Wisco targets?
well, unfortunatley i don't think i'm there with the swim, in fact i'm slower these days - current state of affairs would see me very happy with:
swim- 65 min
it's difficult to say not having seen the bike course, but i'm certainly riding stronger than at DE and its more my sort of terrain, as long as i don't over cook it, so let's say
bike - 5:35
having run 3:20 at Germany, i'm pretty confident about having one of the fastest run splits here - the past results dont indicate a fast run course though, so
run - 3:25 would be a good one.
with 6 min for transition that'd be
total 10:12 - so 10:15 looks like an attainable target.
