info on my fitness etc:

http://forum.slowtwitch.com/...ing=cozumel;#4839335

so update from week 4 onwards.

i finally started swimming. i probably have 6-7 miles in since i made that thread. ran an ultra relay last weekend. over 4k elevation gain in 28 miles. i put out a 9 min pace for the race (the 3am leg of 10ish miles killed my time, i averaged 11 min miles cus i was asleep). was sore for a few days. rested all week, just swam and spun lightly.

hiked this weekend with a 50lb pack. did 16 miles. took a little spill and bruised my SIJ on the right side. hurts to turn in bed but it'll be fine by race. didn't do anything today. not going to do anything tomorrow. at this point. rest is key.

wednesday i'll do a 3 mile run when i get to cozumel.

thursday i'll bike and swim and run

friday i'll do the same

saturday i do nothing but rest, maybe light swim and bike before i drop the bike off. most likely just swim and drop bike off.

i'll have some good prizes. i'm busy packing right now so i'm not listing them. (a2 bottle with integrated garmin mount, swim goggles, pedals, helmets etc)

my number is 262 so you guys can track me and see who came closest the time guessed.

guesses end midnight the night prior to the race.

have fun guessing!

Ok thought about and reread thread.

Here r my final answers:

Swim 1:35 nonwetsuit - youll struggle here. Same as before

bike- 5:39 your strength - itll be hot and windy. You'll strong but maybe get a little ambitious with pacing.

run - 4:20 still wild card - struggle a little during start and then settle in . First half in 1:55. Starts hurtin. 2nd half in 2:25. If you can avoid walking you might go slightly under 4:20.

t1 - 5:00 t2 - 3:00

total time 11:47 total time. Good luck and prove me wrong and bust out a sub 11!

bests,

john

John, I am going to crush you in the swim... and try to best you on the bike. Please be generous with your wave and encouragement ("keep it up big guy") when you pass me on the run.
