Race Report is up! http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=164456&posts=2&start=1 Oh, and I did earn a Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3. Clearwater spot and so did Kilo Dave! Looks like I need to plan this out. I'm very happy about this development as going to Clearwater has given my season a sense of meaning. Without an Ironman scheduled in 09, I wasn't really training with any real purpose. Now it is on!

Looong day of driving. Decided to swim.

Interesting fact from Ironman Kansas 70.3 Run Split Tim Deboom: 1:25:38 Richard Paradis (aka Dick Dime): 1:25:40 I'm sure he had a less than stellar day by his standards, but still... Also, The first place age grouper was 40 years old and ran a 4:04 and actually beat Tim! When You think about it like that, the guy who won my age group should have raced pro which moves me into 3rd place, theoretically. Additionally, I was only 15 seconds behind the guy who beat me and exactly 2 minutes behind the 2nd place finisher! UGH! If only I could swim!!

IM Kansas 70.3
New HIM PR
I burned the skin off my feet... literally! In spite of blisters on all sides of my feet, I rocked this run. I have finally run off the bike like I am capable of doing.

New HIM PR
I know, it's pathetic... but about 3 minutes faster than at the 5430 HIM!

Very happy with this race! 4:32:35 - an 8 minute PR in the half ironman distance!

Some 50s and 100s around 47 and 1:47 for them. 500m straight in less than 10 min. so that is pretty good for me too.

This was a "break out" swim for me. I have been playing with different stroke styles and I found the one that I am going to use!

Today I started out dong 50s (meters):
47, 47, 46, 50, 45
I know these aren't fast compared to everyone else out there, but to me they were all records!

Then I did 5 100s:
1:47, 1:47, 1:46, 1:41, 1:39
I've never done this before!
I'm really stoked.

Something is happening.

OK, here is where I make my bold and perhaps ambitious predictions for IM Kansas 70.3! Swim: <39 Notes: I have looked up my swim times for every triathlon that I have ever swam. My first one was 3:02/100, My fastest two tri's were pool swims with a 1:56/100 at the Mini Ha Ha last year. My fastest open water was 2:02/100 at the Boulder Peak last year. Basically to reach my goal I will need to swim a 1:58/100 which is totally doable. Granted I usually swim about 2:14 in HIM's but I think this time will be different! Bike: <2:25 This may or may not be conservative based on the course profile and race day conditions but, I looked at what other riders have done there and I think I should be able to average 23+ mph. My past two 5430 HIMs were: 2:21:44/23.71 avg. mph last year and 2:21:04/23:81 avg. mph in 2007. So I'm allowing 3 minutes or so and I think this will be realistic. Run: <1:30 I have never run this fast in a HIM but my stand alone half marathon is sub 1:20 so on this flat course I'm thinking sub 1:30 is realistic. Last year 1:33:42 at 5430 which is a hot and difficult run course. Transitions: <3:00 Projected finish: <4:37 I love to dream!
