Training wise I am having an easier week than usual as my next training block starts Monday. With my first race approaching fast the following two weeks is high volume before a semi taper week. Can't believe it's only three weeks and then the racing starts, new season new goals!
Talking of races after emailing and discussing it with my coach we've decided on the races I'll do up to the end of the year. I was thinking of doing all the races in the Energade Sprint series but coach feel it will be better to concentrate on training insteadof doing Sprint Tri's.
As my goal is Ironman it will be better putting in high volume over the weekends than doing Sprint distance racing.
The races I'll be doing are:
Afriman Duathlon October 3
Huis Betsie 12 hour bike challenge October 24 ( more of a fund raiser than race but will still be hard)
Sun City Olympic Tri, November 7
Double Century Bike Race November 27
Prestige Half Ironman, December 16
Well that's it, family is waiting for me. DJ has another dance competition tomorrow and we are leaving today and are sleeping over, close to the venue. Luckily I'm packed as I took the day off work and could also fit in my training for the day before we leave.
