Since I was recovering from a cold last week and spending time with my littlest angel Annaliese there were no posts last week. This time was not wasted and I evaluated my race calendar and training schedule. My main events for this year include a marathon in March, half marathon in May, Half Ironman in June, International distance triathlon in September, and a century ride in October. Along with these events I will be running several smaller events to keep my competitive edge. This year I will again be raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and you can make a secured donation by clicking here.
So today I ran 3 miles on the treadmill at the Y followed by some strength training. My training is logged using Ontri.com where training calendar is also maintained. Like last year I am still looking for some help with nutrition and creating a diet that will help me maintain the lean competitive body that I desire. Unlike last year I have someone that is going to coach me in the swim and help me become a better swimmer thus making me more competitive. Are you all seeing the theme here? This year I want to be competitive and set some new personal records.
My motto this year is the lesson that Yoda taught Skywalker Do or Do not. There is no try." Yoda teaches Luke Skywalker the force.
