Hi, thinking of having a go at a tri and was wondering what speeds were middle of the road for a lady in her mid forties. I've looked at the internet for this answer to this question relating to women but it just seems loads of responses for men boasting how fast they can go. I'm only 5ft and a bit and 7st 7lb so keeping up with big blokes is mission imposs. I am pretty fit from running but feel that when I'm out on my bike men (cos I don't see many women) just go past me like I'm not moving. So I'm just interested what's considered the middle ground so I can gauge whether its because I'm just dead slow ! Thanks for any advice.
