Rather than waste your time and send an email, as I am pretty sure I probably lack the speed needed in the Olympic distance, can you give a idea of what the run test would be or times for an Olympic tri? Times/Distances?


We have a few "proof of run" sets for runners who have met the historical (14') time, as a non-intrusive way to predict current run ability. The times below are based on 14:45 5k fitness and would give you an idea of where your run is now.
-- 1500m Kosmin Assessment (look this up on line for details) = 4x1min effort with 3/2/1min recovery between each. Cover a distance of 1605m for the 4x1' of running.
-- 3000m 1200m/2x1000m/800m with 75/60/60s recovery between each. 400/1km pace of 67.2/2:48.
-- 5000m 4x1600m with 90s recovery between each. 400/1km pace of 70.8/2:57.
