15 mins faster swim.  Although i am an appalling swimmer so that must mean my running is even more atrocious!

1.19 swim time at IM Reg, 1.58 best half, back in 09, but I'd like to think I could beat that nowadays. Should do another really... (half mara, obviously. Not swim!)

1:22 swim at Outlaw. 98 min at Wokingham HM.

16 minute difference. Hoping to reduce this at Cardiff HM in a few weeks. Depends on ankle.

I also wondered the same about 5km and 10mi TT times. I think a 5mi run instead of 5km. would be closer to parity.

 I doubt I'll ever be able to swim 3,800m in 1:20.

OMG if the swim in my Iroman takes as long as my half PB I may as well give up now.

IM swim pb 1:25ish
HM pb 1:58

I reckon with some dedicated training I could get my swim time down by 5-10mins.  The HM pb was set a few years ago (before I got into tri) when I was running marathons and training regularly.  I very much doubt that I could better it now however hard I trained.

Edit note:
Nest should read best.

Although I was good at nesting, decorated a whole house at 39 weeks.

We have the same HM PB Trogs :0)

Alas my swim is fundamentally shite. Ranging between 2 hrs to a 1.48 PB

I haven't done an IM yet but my oh swims around 50-55mins and best HM is 1:26 so a fair difference, then again he's like a fish!

From what I see on FaceSpace your running is really coming on. I feel a run-off coming on for the HM distance! Do you have a HM lined up?
