  1. Running (by far)
  2. Cycling (not too bad)
  3. Swimming (shit, not built for it)

When I started I would definitely have said Running then Swimming then Biking. My splits at the Outlaw suggest a complete reversal :O

Unfortunately I am probably best at swimming - though even that isn't that quick

I would have said running until last weekend.

Position wise, results suggest bike, then run, then swim. I always use this as a measure of progress

That's interesting because I'm a strong runner, and yes above average on the bike but I thought my running speed would transfer more to the bike than it has.

I'm much better at running than I am at tri, for example I looked at melli's times from the Outlaw and could kill her run, but she's SO much stronger on the swim and bike than me. I'm never going to get close with the swim but I think I could improve loads on the bike, I just don't feel the same competitive need or want in cycling. I guess that might show that subconsciously I just want to run and that's all.

Bike, swim, run.

Used to be Run, Bike, Swim but since I've been workin to improve my biking and also learning to swim freestyle again my running has really dropped off. (I'm about 1 min slower per mile over half marathon which is a massive loss

nutrition...........so many people never reach their potential because they underestimate the nutition side............without you can be the fastest runner in the world and will still get a crap run time.........I love the eating part of the race....

 

KK.interesting that you could kill Melli's run...I thought your single IM pb on the run was 5:17.or did you mean your standalone marathon PB could beat her IM PB

I've done one single IM, I bonked on the bike and had a knee injury. I was a complete rookie. You must be experienced enough to realise the progressions for all of us here?

Oh and I was also pissed in the run up to it and the temp was high in Nice, such is the Pirate way. We drank the bar dry the Wed before the race. Proper Pirating.

Old school.
