    Are you giving it everything plus extra on race day - crawling out of the pool, almost dying at the end of the bike ride and oxygen mask/ambulance at the end of the run. How serious are you etc?

    I reckon I am putting around 134-142% effort into every Tri I enter. Nobody has ever passed me...….. :whistle:

    If you’re spent after the swim you’re not gonna make it to the run, i push the pace that i feel i can sustain for the whole duration, so if i’m a 25min 1500m swimmer i’m not going to be able to last if i try to do a 21min swim. Comfortably uncomfortable.
    Definitely spent by the end of the run though.
    Aim for a PB but realistic based on training times and how you’re feeling on the day/what the course profile is.
