2 months with no racing activity equals less training and some badminton. With no races in sight I opted to reduce my workouts even though I know I'm going to join White Rock Triathlon on October 27, 2012. To force myself to train again I signed up for some events and here are the lineup so far leading to my first mid distance triathlon.
1. August 19, 2012 - Powerade Duathlon Leg 3 - To test my legs I'll try to race this hard and see if my muscles will hold well during the second run. This will also be the first time I'll use my bike shoes in a race.
2. September 9, 2012 - Unilab SCTEX Duathlon - This is where I will test the nutrition packs I planned to use in WRT and gauge my target time approximation.
3. September 30, 2012 - adidas King of The Road - This is going to be my first fun run that will exceed 12 kilometers. In preparation for the 20K run of WRT I will sign up for the 16.8K run and experiment with my pacing strategy.
4. October 7, 2012 - Rudy Project Triathlon - Just registered to get a free Rudy Project glasses :-)
After these 3 events I will focus my training on swimming and long rides starting on Octber 2, 2012 and hope to be healthy, happy and fit to accomplish my workouts. As always... train easy and race hard :) . Life is good!
