Will I finish a triathlon
May 17
M$450 bet
750m swimming, 5K running, 20K on a bike. I'm in pretty bad shape, but I intend to go slowly. At a slow pace, 750m swimming = half an hour, 5k running = an hour, 20km bike = an hour. This site: https://www.triathlete.com/training/dear-coach-what-is-a-good-triathlon-time-for-a-beginner/ claims that a good triathlon time is 1.5 hours, that would be an hour more. Then the question is whether I can do 2.5h of excercise, which I think I can. To clarify, the triathlon in happening near the middle of May

Skeptical. I think you're looking at more like 4 hours untrained. If you're willing to slog it out, you and your backers deserve it.

Normally I would be skeptical, but since you have created a market for it, I think you are motivated :-)
