Need some outside opinions on just how hard it is to complete a half ironman?
My parents have been seriously training for one on labor day weekend that doesn't have the usual 8 hour time limit. All I want to do is complete it. I've noticed with other events that I have done such as 10ks, half marathons, sprint tris, and half century rides that being young, now 20, allows me to hardly train and have quite a bit of success. Or I guess I should say, good enough for me. I'm just wondering if my young age can carry me through this event? PR in half marathon: 1:45:08 PR in sprint tri: 400 swim - 10:08 followed by a 12 mile bike averaging 18 mph and 5k at 21:20 As far as training I've just been doing 1000 meter swims in open water and 1 hour bike rides followed by 30 minutes running. With a few 2 hour rides and 1 hour runs sprinkled in for the last two months. I'm starting to get nervous. Should I even attempt this thing
