Putting Together a Schedule

Friday, May 06, 2011

With my daughter away at a birthday party & my husband at work, I've had time on my hand this afternoon. That's RARE, and I'm enjoying it! So, on the eve of my sprint triathlon, I am busy planning & dreaming of races to come! Here's a basic outline of my thoughts at this point.

now - Aug - triathlon season
Sep - Dec - running season
Jan - Apr - biking season

I probably won't make all of these events, and I'll probably add some others. But, here is what I have worked out for now.

May - sprint triathlon (tomorrow!)

June - half marathon (San Diego RnR)

July - sprint triathlon (2 choices)

August - sprint triathlon (2 choices)

September - 5K (repeat of my 1st 5K last Sept!)
September - sprint triathlon (kind of looking at Olympic distance, but it is 3x the swim!)

October - two 5Ks (repeats from last year)

November - half marathon (several possibilities) & 5K

December - half marathon (2 possibilities - but would love to do the Vegas RnR!)

January - start training for MS150!!! Also, possible half marathon (Houston - lotto system)

February - MS150 training

March - MS150 training & possible half marathon

April - MS150!!!

That's my schedule at this point, and I'm really excited about it!!! I hope to add some 5Ks, 10Ks, and possibly even muddy events or "Climbs" (where you race up stairs in a building). And, who knows what my sister-in-law will come up with! (She's who I'm racing both HMs with - Tulsa in Nov & San Diego next month.)

    Woo so excited for your big plans. I think it looks great so far.

    (I've thought about going beyond the sprint distance too, but it is that darn swim that gets me - I just don't think I can put in the many hours that would be required to make me a decent swimmer.)
