But, I guess I can't do them ALL. So, following Lisa's trend, on a positive note ... I will be hopefully participating in the following ... and look forward to it all.
YMCA Chase Race, 10K: (Fargo, June 12) This should be a fun race. It's a thursday evening. I am choosing to do the 10K because I have never done one ... and I think it would be a great way to keep up with my longer runs!
LifeNets Sprint Triathlon: (Mandan, ND; September 7) This will be probably my last (only 2nd) triathlon before 2008 is over. And then it will be back to indoor triathlons and maybe a Danskin in Chicagoland next summer. (Danskin doesn't work with my schedule of teaching summer school this year.)
FM Bridge to Bridge Bash: (Fargo, September 20) I haven't decided if I am going to do the 5 or 10 miler. Maybe I will shoot for the 10 miler. Could be loads of fun. I gotta do this one. It's right here in town.
UND Homecoming 5K/10K: (Grand Forks, October 18) I have done this one the past 2 years, last year breaking my 5K PR. I might just plan to do the 5K unless I get a wild hair up my butt this fall! September/October is the most perfect time of year to race in ND ... along with the months of May/June.
5K Turkey Trot: (Bismarck, November 27) This will be a 5K ... to Shave some of my Stubble... fo sho! This will be the fourth year I have done this race! It keeps growing every year and the cause is wonderful. I am hoping for chips this year. I was contemplating the 10K ... but running that distance in the possibility of cold weather/snow/sleet/rain/etc .. . is not my style. Plus, I got to hurry home and help mom get the turkey dinner on the table for the big fam!
Now that I have it all down .... I am noticing that the remaining 6 months of 2008 are going to be super fun! A few different distances and races I have never done will be awesome! I will just go with this plan and if something else comes a long the way that I can squeeze in ... will do. Otherwise I am going to just focus on getting down a good base and being consistent ... in the pool, on the bike, and hitting the pavement! That and building my tollerance for adult beverages... because according to Jess ... that is what the summer is for!
Anyone know of any good traithlon training schedules? I have a couple I have looked at, but it seems like the distance/duration of all the workouts seem so minimal... less than what I have been doing prior to the half marathon. Any suggestions or ideas would be great. I know some of you make up your own and I would love to hear more about those as well!
