When I first set out on this silly goal, it was actually to complete in 2008. I took the averages of Iron Ladies in 2006 to set a gauge of my speeds and am surprised to find that the averages have dropped quite a bit in each category. So, listed below are 2006 Iron Ladies (IL) and 2009 Iron Ladies (IL), plus the Women’s Team category results and the Ladies Veterans (LV) which is team of women over the age of 35. I fit well into that category and am probably working at their speeds more so than the W or IL. However, overall, the women in this competition are doing paces listed in the last column.
|Leg||Dist||2006 IL||2009 IL||2009 W||2009 LV||Average||M||S||PACE (kph)|
I feel like I’m not even close! My overall run average is 9.7kph! My horse is slow as molasses! My cycle is 20kph if all conditions are right!
What am I going to do!?
Oh my God! Have I bitten off more than I can chew!?
