My stats for the overall were this:

Swim - 197 / 538
Bike - 220 / 538
Run - 330 / 538
Overall - 208 / 538



You know, these are actually fairly balanced stats for the 3 events. In overall placements, a generally balanced male will tend to place higher in the bike than the run simply because power-to-weight considerations favor the guys on most triathlon bike courses.

If you want unbalanced, here's my corresponding data for my last tri: S; 208/331, B: 140/331, R: 8/331; or the one before that: S: 85th, B: 6th; R: 2nd. Or read a classic Slowtwitch thread on the uber biker/runner Josh Beck (google "Josh Beck can't swim").

For years I ran a 10 min/mile pace but only because it made the math easy. 1 miles every 10 minutes. If I ran 30 minutes you can bet that I ran right at 3 miles.

I'm older and slower now.....gonna have to learn to do math....

The last 2 sprints I ran about just over 7 min per mile. Having said that, I crawl along at about 2 and a half minutes per 100 metres in swimming. I'm 58. Not many pass me running but a lot pass me swimming. So, be the best you can, work on the weak areas, tweek the strong areas. Ignore those around you and run your own race.

I tend to train at 7min/mile running, 20.5 mph on bike and 1:50 /100m on swim.

In all the races I have done this year this has landed me FOP in local events.

It depends on your goals and capabilities

I'm slow in everything so.....LOL!

My best 5K time was 7:23 pace
Best 10K time was 8:35 pace
Best half mary was about a 9:20 pace

Bike best MPH avg is 20.4

Best swim is around a 2 min/100 yards.

Tris my run times come down to about a 8:30 pace.

Uggggg.

Good advice.

Dude, I'd be ecstatic to run a 7:23 pace 5K. Ironically, my tri run times are better. That must be telling me something...

A sub 7 won't do it here to win a sprint....or an oly.  You need 6 or just under for a sprint (unless a certain kid shows up and runs 5:2X's)  and 6:15 for an oly.  The times keep dropping. 

There is a local Oly this weekend....maybe 350 people.  The winner needs a sub 20:00 swim, a bike just over an hour on a  course with ALOT of turns, and a 38:00 10K.

So, for the OP, what was the average run time of the 350 people?

I'll let you know....my guess is a 55 minute 10k gets you in the middle.

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.

I think quite truly for the first time I 'get it'. It's not just about the fitness. It's not just about the great little endorphin rush as you hit 5, 10, 15 miles...its not just the medal at the end.
