My biggest goals are Honu Triathlon. I have a few goals for this race, and lots of short term ones leading up to it... The first is to finish in the top 5 Hawaii state finishers. The second is to win my age group. Time Goals are as follows:
Swim: <30:00
BIke   <2:20:00
Run    <1:30:00
Total   <4:20:00
I have essentially met one of these goals twice this year with two sub 2:20 bikes. My closest swim was 36, and my fastest run was 1:43. I will need to improve my swimming, and my nutrition in the heat. I dehydrated on my run and was on pace for a 1:30 untill I started to dehydrate and cramp.
