I started out about 4 blog post during the past few days. I did not finish them, the tone was not right.
I wanted to say how gimmicky the New Yorker article on running form was.
I wanted to ask you if 5-6 hours bike, 3 mile swim and 50 miles run represent a good enough base training for me.
I wanted to tell you about how frustrating it is to see that there is no agreement on proper swim technique (e.g., hand entry, rotation, etc, etc).
I wanted to tell you how I am becoming addicted to compression tights and have forbidden myself from purchasing any this year (I already own 5 pairs of compression shorts and 2 pairs of compression tights).
But then I realize that I really want to talk about racing. So let me share my tentative, incomplete, and exciting schedule for the remainder of 2010 and most of 2011.
December 4th - Skyline Trail Race (Middlesex Fells), 2 loops, 16 miles - assuming no snow.
January 1st - Lowell New Year 5K - going for sub 20!
January 16th - Derry 16 miler
February 21st - Half at Hamptons Half Marathon - going for sub 1:30!
April 21 - Great Bay Half Marathon - going for sub 1:30 again!
Hopefully a bike race.
June 6th - Mooseman Half Ironman - going for a PR!
One week completely off after Mooseman.
One week easy.
Back in training. Hopefully a bike racing event.
August 20th Vermont Half Ironman - going for as close to 5h as possible!
One week easy
Transition to running
October 16th - Baystate Marathon - going for 3:10 if I manage a sub 1:30 half, or a 3:15 if I don't.
This is A LOT of racing for me. Will see how it will go! I am excited!!!
