When I set my race schedule for 2015, I remember thinking “Oh, I have so much time to train for all of these races. And yet the races are coming faster than I thought.
Cherry Blossom is in under 3 weeks. Two more weeks of training and a nice taper to get me ready. I’m excited about this race. I don’t have a PR in me (my 10 mile PR is from before my heartrate issues were diagnosed and I don’t know that I’ll ever get back to it), but I’m hoping for a really strong race.
My first triathlon of the season is in 7 weeks. This kind of terrifies me more than it should. It’s “only” a sprint, but it’s going to be my first open water swim of the season, and that never goes well for me. I’m hoping to get a chance to get into the water at a practice somewhere in the weeks before. But when you’re looking at early may, open water swimming is a bit limited.
And then it’s 12 weeks until my big race of the season, Challenge Williamsburg. I’m doing the olympic distance, and I’m confident I can be ready for that one. 12 weeks is a long time, right?
Oh wait, I was just talking about how time flies. Fingers crossed, I guess.
