2009 race schedule just a draft...i am really excited about this year!
my big "training plan" until Honu 70.3 (if i can afford a plane ticket!) is just to stay as consistent as possible while balancing work and school. i will (cross your fingers!) graduate with my Ed.S. (4 years of grad school and only a faux wanna-be PhD!)) on may 24th. so honu will be a good celelbration. so here is the rough idea...
3/1 Gran Fondo Century Ride (not a race, but my first century)
3/29 Super Seal International Triathlon (SD Tri Series)
4/26 La Jolla Half Marathon
5/17 Encinitas Triathlon (maybe)
5/30 Honu 70.3 (A)
6/28 San Diego International Triathlon (SD Tri Series)
7/4 Scripps Ranch Old Pros 10k
7/11 Xterra Sugarbush Xduro 21k
minor possibility of vineman 70.3 on 7/19
7/26 Solana Beach Triathlon (SD Tri Series)
8/15 Pikes Peak Ascent (or Marathon? probably ascent.)
8/23 Imperial Beach Triathlon (SD Tri Series)
9/27 Orange County International Triathlon
10/4 Mission Bay Triathlon (SD Tri Series)
10/11 Chicago Marathon (sub 3 or bust!) or Kona Ironman World Championships (A Race) (go big or go home with the goals, right?)
there will also be some local club races and things thrown in. yes, its a lot of races, but only 2 A races and maybe 3-4 i will do any type of taper for. i just love to race and i'm lucky with my breakway training team to be able to do so.
ooooh. and james posted one of his latest awesome recipes on Vo2Maxxed...blue corn encrusted mahi mahi with healthy yogurt tartar sauce. deeeeeeeeeeeeelish.
let me know if you have any thoughts on these races, training for them, if you'll be there...thoughts...any thoughts are welcome!
