I have entered a middle distance tri, taking place in 6 weeks. I am now having second thoughts about whether or not I will finish in time.
2 stone overweight.
Swim will take best part of an hour.
I am a very slow cyclist. (Recent 50 mile sportive (hilly) took 3:50)
Running best discipline. (1:50ish for half mara at the moment, but have been a lot quicker when I was less lardy)
Finished Slateman on Sunday in just over 4 hours, a long way down the field.
Doing the sums, I think I will be sailing close to cut-off times. I have the option of dropping down to Oly distance, but am reluctant to do this - would like to give the Middle a good go if at all possible. However, if the feeling is that I am some way off, I would rather finish the Oly than not finish the Middle (if that makes sense).
