This was indeed an interesting week. I still have no real training schedule. I'm basically going day to day with my focus being on improving my biking and swimming. I'm fortunate enough to be seeing these improvements! I'm starting to enjoy the bike as I get more comfortable. I put in a good 37 mile ride on Wednesday in about 2:20.
So what's this post about? Very good question. I'm going to take this next week to settle into some sort of training program. I'm careful to make time for some long runs (I put in 12 at 9:15 pace today...which is, btw ahead of my half marathon PR!) I want to make sure I'm ready for Big Sur in April. So for now...here are my updated goals for the year:
3/29 - First Olympic Distance Tri - I hope to finish in about 3 hours, maybe a 3:10
4/26 - Big Sur Int'l Marathon - I have no goal other than to enjoy the course
5/9 - SB Wine Country Half - We'll be showing the film at the event! Julia will also be running. Julia's hoping to break 2:30 and I'm hoping to break 2:00
5/x - LA or SD Marathon....hmmmmm......
6/x - Another Tri...somewhere
7/x - Another Tri - somewhere
8/22 - SB Triathlon, Long Course - goal TBD
10/x - LA Tri
12/7 - SB Int'l Marathon
OK....great, right? I'm also thinking about a 70.3 in September if I can find one...how cool would that be?
