Ironman Wisconsin: Goals

 

Honestly, I went back and forth whether or not I should share my goals for Ironman Wisconsin because I didn’t want to share them and fail to meet them. But the fact of the matter is, I am doing an Ironman, and finishing the damn race is an achievement, regardless. Plus, now I know you all know my deepest darkest secrets and that will be in the back of my mind when the going gets tough.

The Swim: 4224 Yards

2016 Time: 1:16:03 — 1:56/100 yards

2017 Projected Time: 1:13:00– 1:44/100 yards

Transition 1:

2016 Time: 9:33

2017 Projected Time: 8:00

The Bike: 112 Miles

2016 Time: 6:50:36 — 16.37 mph

2017 Projected Time: 6:07:13 — 18.3 mph

Transition 2: 

2016 Time: 5:45

2017 Projected Time: 4:30

The Run: 26.2 miles

2016 Time: 4:10 — 9:32/mile

2017 Projected Time: 3:40 — 8:25/mile

Total Time: 

2016 Time: 12:31:58

2017 Projected Time: 11:12:30

My goal isn’t to chase time by any means, and I don’t want to get upset if things aren’t going as planned. In the end, I want to have fun, smile and high-five the fans (especially all of my friends and family coming out!) and feel good when I finish. Here goes nothing!

Ironman Wisconsin Training: Week 32

 

It’s hard to believe Ironman Wisconsin is less than two weeks away! I am trying to keep myself from wandering to weather.com or any Ironman Wisconsin Facebook groups to keep my mind at ease, which is way easier said than done. The weather has been very fall-like lately, which makes me bummed that summer is nearly over, but I’ll take the cooler temps come race day for sure!

Last week we started our taper, which honestly didn’t feel like too much of a taper at all.
