Well the drama should be at a low till just before spring break. And maybe that will be the end of all the drama.
I got my new USAT magazine and I found out what the qualifying time is for the Half Ironman. For my age group it is 5:45. This is not a typo. 5 hours and 45 minutes. I used an app the USAT recommended for figuring out my time and splits.
It says that my finishing time will be around 6:13.
That's using all my now times. The swim distance in meters is 1931 M. I have to get my swim time to 45 minutes which will make my pace at 2:19/100M. Now for biking 56 miles, I need to get faster. I have to get my speed up to 22.39 mph,which I can maintain 21 mph now,I have to work on my run. I need to get faster. I have to concentrate on distance and speed. I have to get my run to a 11:12 minute mile to come close to my goal time. I would have to get my half marathon time down to 2:26. Holy Cats!!! I do not see that happening. I have to drop the weight. Lighter equals faster on everything. I will have to shave 32 minutes off of my half marathon time.
Do I want to try to make it to Clearwater, FL. ?? Yes I do. My legs are ready. I have to be ready. So I have to get back out there and do my daily 6 milers. No walking aloud. Got to get in the pool.
E will have to ride his bike so I can run, he can set the pace on the bike and I can work on keeping up.
Tonight I did an easy spin on the trainer, watching wrestling. 30 minutes 10.5. I was doing 12 miles in 30 minutes. Got to get back up there. The ING marathon weekend is coming up. I can't wait going to go watch and ring my cowbell. We have a Team Voicer going to be out there. Mike R.
Have a great week. :)
