I've looked over the results from last year but I honestly have no idea how I'll do or what my times will be like.
The swim will likely be my weakest event and is also the biggest variable for me. I fully anticipate crushing the bike leg.
Running a half marathon is never easy, particularly after swimming more than a mile in open water and biking 56 miles in the Adirondack Mountains. Despite these challenges I think I'll be able to muscle/heart out the run.
I'm not following nor have I found a formal training plan as of yet but I am working on all three sports. Any recommendations on training plans is welcome. I am also open to any recommended reading on biking and swimming technique.
