Peg’s Posts: Ironman Hawaii
In light of Jake’s recent post about seasonal slumps, thought I’d warm things up with a look back at Ironman Hawaii. MotionBased tester and Forerunner 305 user Anthony Cece competed in this ultimate Ironman race held in Kona, Hawaii, on Oct. 11, 2007. I won’t even begin to try to recap Anthony’s grueling 140.6-mile journey. You’ve got to read his story for yourself on the MB log. You can also view detailed data and map overlays for each stage of his race in MotionBased. After reading Anthony’s account, it made me realize the importance of having multiple goals on race day. Typically, for a race I’ve never competed in, I set three time goals. The first one is my “pie in the sky” goal — one I doubt I can achieve but if conditions are perfect, hey, I might get close. Second is my idealistic goal — this is somewhat better than I’ve achieved in a training session simulating the race. And lastly is my “I can live with this” goal. Here’s where you make a pact with yourself that says if race conditions stink or you start to flounder and the wheels fall off (hopefully not literally), you can live with this time. With Forerunner, Edge and our online community, it’s easy to track your training, set goals for race day and analyze your performance after the event.
