1 Week more to Aviva Half-Ironman

This is the tapering week and I love it... my body can finally rest & recover at last!
Last Week's Training:
Mon: Rest
Tues: 3km Swim (1hr 13min)
Wed: 25km Run (2hr 33min)
Thurs: 1.2hr Cycle & 4km Run
Fri: Rest
Sat: 9km Run (instead of 25km, as body was really tired)
Sun: 90km Cycle & 5km Run (4hr)
I spent 10-11hours exercising last week.
The best thing - No irregular heartbeat detected.
I should be able to complete the race.

Putting it together
you should be expecting
- Swim max 1 hr for the 1.9km? (simply because it's open sea)
- Bike: Tricky...4hrs max should be max
- Run: Tricky...2/1/2 hours max.

If completing is the main goal, I won't worry about time if I were you. But if you'd like a time element the total max should be 7/1/2 hours, which I think is fair (even to the extend of comfy). Given at rest btw meals it's not even this long, I suggest at least 2 gels to go along :)

Cheering for you in Pittsburgh. Aim for completing, and when I'm back we talk about working timing :P fuahahhaha
