I'm planning my race calender for 2012, and so far my main event will be to race the Ironman UK in july. i want to aim for a sub 5:30 bike split, and get of the bike with good legs for the run, possibly a sub 3:30 marathon.
Now, meanwhile the problem is, IMUK has 7300ft climbing on the bike course and 1600ft climbing on the run course.
And i live in Denmark, there is nothing higher than 200ft here!!! the place is flat as a pancake!
Previously i would i've been doing 5:55 bike splits on a flat course and come of the bike feeling too good, and i'm a strong runner, running 3 hour single marathons.
I would very much appreciate any input or advice from you guys.
