Subject: Clyde Times for HM/M/HIM/IM...

As I was running last night I was wondering what times other Clydes are posting for longer events.  Specifically, Clydes that are not on the small end of the category...Ok, I really just wanted to compare my progress to other people my size since I haven't seen anyone big at the few races I have been to...

I'll start with mine...

Marathon 10/12 (my first) - 300 lbs     5:42:38

Half Marathon 3/13 (not an actual race, but tired to run it like one) - 272 lbs    2:27:24

HIM (haven't done one, signed up for Timberman 70.3 8/13)

IM (haven't done one, IMLP '14 hopefully)

Looks like you and I are at about the same pace.

I ran my first 1/2 marathon at about 275 and finished in 2:26 a couple of weeks later finished another half in 2:24.  I haven't done a HIM yet, but I'm doing the AZ IM this year.

Not as many responses as I expected.  Any of you mid - lower weight Clydes want to chime in?  I'm starting to hope/think I might be at the mid-range by my next marathon and lower end by my first HIM.  Laughing

Doing my first HIM this fall, so I can add my time then.  My first and only HM was 2:10.  Other than that, it's been all sprints and olys for me.

Good Luck!  

My best 5k was 32:37, with normal being more like 36:00ish  prior to my first HM last year.  I finished that one at 02:41:28.

You will be fine! Just take it easy the first 2-3 miles DO NOT start fast everyone does work hard to keep your pace SLOW early.

If at mile 11 (only 2.1 remaining!!!!) you feel good pick up the pace and finish as fast as you can!!!

I pace the 3 Hr half every year for the Cowtown in Fort Worth a 13:30 pace puts you in at 2:58...

Make your self a "pace" bracelet to keep your target pace control...

FYI, Only you give a crap about your time, everyone else will see your Medal and you have proven your Mettle!

I know I have never heard someone after the race say anything like OMG it took you 3 hours to finish...

It's always; good job runner, congrats on your race!

I'm 5'11 and around 225lbs.  My 1/2 Mary time is right in the 2hr mark.  My problem is that I tend to not follow training plans close enough.  I just put on the headphones and pick a route in line with the distance on the plan.  The problem with that is that it may say 3 miles and I go run that 3 miles at the same pace I'll run 6 miles later in the week.  In reality, the short runs should be the tempo or hill stuff that I need.

I heard a ton of that during and after my marathon...No one (well except a few friends that are runners) has ever asked me what my time was.

I also second the being careful not to stay with the pack for the first couple of miles.  It's a real fight for me to stay at my pace (or slightly above) and not try to keep up with others.  Mentally I just don't want to fall back even though I know I need to.

I know first hand even being a pacer and knowing the way the race starts I have in the past ran the first mile 2 minutes faster than planned and I will tell you those 2 min cost me 10 in the end!

Start slow warmup cruise then leave it all out there in the last 2 miles (2.1)

Ok, lower weight clyde by "Old Standards"

In 2007 did HIM in 5:18 and IM in 11:41 (with a 4:18 marathon portion) both were @ about 203

Last year did a HM in 1:52 (at about 217)  about a month ago did 13.1 in 1:49 in training @ about 215 or so.

HIM (haven't done one, signed up for Timberman 70.3 8/13)

IM (haven't done one, IMLP '14 hopefully)

I haven't raced in three years because of work and daughters and then injuries, but my last HIM was on a 100+ degree day with winds and I finished.  The time was over 7 hours, but it was a full on walk on the 13.1.  I tried running twice and it was not to be or I knew I was going to drop on the course.  In the clydes division there were 40 people to start the race and I was last in the division and I was 18th of 40, but also last.

Enjoy the races.  That is what it is about.

Finished in 2:29 as I've ballooned up to 300lbs and have not been training as hard or been as dedicated as in years past. Working on getting back on the horse and focusing on proper nutrition to get the weight down and racing again.

I haven't done a full yet, but shooting for 15:00 in Mont Tremblant this year. I raced Rev3 HIM at Old Orchard Beach last year and finished in 6:54. I'm an ok swimmer, decent cyclist but a horrible runner thanks to old injuries. I could have done my HIM faster, but broke my plan on the run and mentally checked out early. My average 5k is about 32-35 minutes and I weigh 215-220. Shanr

In my experience IM times are so dependant on a number of things it can be tough to predict. Your fitness and training are obviously a huge part of it but there are things that happen on course that can cause you to lose time quickly.

In my first IM I was unsure of what to do and at my weight I was happy with a 15:51. 2 years later on the same course I was 20lbs lighter and 90 mins faster at 14:21.

In IM Los Cabos we had a MUCH tougher course and horrible heat and this put me back to 15:48 for my time. 

Predicting your time at an Ironman is like asking, "how long is a piece of string?"
