2017 Totals - training / racing / stuffing around

Recommended Posts

Swim:  don't know

Bike:  don't know

Run:  Don't know

I did log total time for each in a XLS in the 30wks leading up to IM Wales, all done with an old school IM Timex watch.  Have no idea about distances though.

I’d be keen to see what everyone’s Ironman times are as on the distances you guys are throwing out you should be doing times with a 9:xx in front of them unless your in the older ages groups.

Who has the time to fit it all in.

40-44 Male.

I went 11:47 on debut at IMAus, definitely room for improvement.

I did IMOz in about 13:15 as pacer for a bloke with Cerebral Palsy.

Haha, I'm even 'older school' than that and write my times and distances down hard copy in a journal.  These are also timed on a Timex watch but I have a fair idea of distances after doing years of training with mates who won't go anywhere without their Garmin's 'dinging' at every K.

Distance wise, as I just wrote in the goals thread, my aim was to Swim - 197.6km (done),  Run - 2,195km (done), and Ride - 9,360km (dismal fail as I only achieved a ride of 20km in anger).  I do have all of the distances written down but don't currently have time to add them all up.  Gotta love doing things manually eh!  :thumbsup:.

That's how I know as well but Ive gotten pretty good at estimating distance/pace.

Run and swim is always time based but a few runs are either measured course or done on treadmill, so then I know,

Where you live, you should just ride bobbin head daily and the run down and back to mt colah. I miss doing both of those things. 

Mind you I love getting to work now in 9minutes compared to hour 15 in Sydney. 

Thats how I find the time. Next to no travel for work.

2013 Cairns - 11:05 and 2016 IMOZ - 10:42

Both of these were in 35-39 AG, now i’m in 40-44. I do a lot of riding indoors as its more time efficient, and I utilise mid-week lunch times for swim and/or gym sessions.

But yes, don’t presently have time for full IM’s - half’s and OD only. For my abilities a sub 10 time would take a hell of a lot more training which just isn’t possible with work and young kids.

Pretty slack year (again), but starting to pick it up a bit now. Hopefully I'll keep it up for a few months.

Run - 688km, mainly trail and parkrun

Bike -  1174 :whistling: , mainly MTB

Swim - 169k, about normal for me.

Still happy I'm in fair nick with no injuries.

Am still amazed by some of the stats. Can't believe people are swimming over 100Km per year let alone 200/300 plus.

I'll start recording my stuff this year and see how it all adds up.

I've never kept yearly totals.  Could never think of any reason to.  I do keep weekly totals in my head occasionally  to keep consistency.  No injuries last years and kept ticking things over so at a guess.

Swim - about 250k

Bike - about 9500k

Run - about 1800k

40 to 44AG

Usually fluke sub 10.

I started with Garmin Connect at the end of May. So these nos are for ~7/12, adding a bit over 50% more for the start of the year when I was still 'old-school' with a journal (and doing a bit more). Can't be bothered adding that manually. 

As of today I'm in 50-54....

Swim- 147 km (so ~230 for the year )

Bike- 4700 (~7000)

Run- 1330 (~2000)

 

For reference, some may have seen a few of the pro's put their nos. out

eg. Charlotte McShane

swim=995

bike=9268

run=2751

Or, marathoner Jess Trengove

run~7500km

So swimming 2km per week is a lot?  For people who need to swim similar distances I  their races...? Would think thst the bare minimum...

Exactly, even my 500km is less than 10km per week, it's not a lot. Anyone doing 3 squad sessions per week would be getting close to that.

At the moment im doing around 7k a week. But i couldnt do it week in weeek out. So my average for the year is low. I just find it mind numbing (solo swimmer).

I'm going to have a swim issue this coming year (as if I wasn't slow enough!).  I have time in the evening but my new job/commute means the available time doesn't line up well with pool sessions.  The longest continuous session I can get is 55 mins but most are 45 and kick off either too early for my new routine or way too late.  

Weekends are available sometimes but don't always play nice with other sessions or family.

Gonna be tricky.  On the plus side, I have a great gym at work and can do lunchtime running/ Wattbike and strength stuff. B)

Looking after 30 at school is easier than 2 at home!

* Swim - 108 kms; Bike - 3,560 kms; Run - 570 kms; Gym - 22 hours.

* 3 x long course/HIM races; 1 x Kurnell; 1 x Nepean Tri; 1 x Tour de Cure ride - 330 kms.  

No injuries, only a lot of skin cancers burnt off or cut out. Disappointed I did not pass my swim and gym/core totals from the previous year. I should turn it around in 2018.

Got the year off to a good start:- 1) although I am working, I have left the missus up the coast for a week, so.. 2) I did 2.7 kms swimming yesterday plus organised a few other sessions this week.

2017 was my year off any serious training or racing, as I decided to have a bit of a mental refresher, so numbers are naturally  down.

Swim- 44.2km

Ride-4,355.7km

Run-336.2km

Others-Yoga-2 hrs/week, Indoor Soccer-1 game/week.
