As a back of a packer this is a massive goal for me, and I know it is a bit of a how long is a piece of string question, but here goes. If an athlete wanted to go sub 10 @ Ironman Melbourne what sort of targets should you be aiming for in training. Looking at results from 2012 most people around that time swam around 55-60 min, rode between 5:00 and 5:15and ran 3:30 to 4:00. So in training what sort of metrics would one be aiming for. More so where should you be at the start of a 16 week build. Generally get weight down to 'racing weight' whatever that may be. Swimming : Is it as simple as being able to swim 4km in the pool in 55 mins, I have heard people talk of 100 repeats on 1:30 or similar before. Riding : Get an FTP or 3.5 w/kg or something like that, then work on being able to hold IM pace? Running : No idea how to measure this one. 20 x 1km repeats @ 4:15 or something maybe? I am looking at racing it in 2015 so it is 18 odd months away, so looking at the long term plan and ideas. Any input more than welcome.
