It all begins on Tuesday, February 21st. I am going to utilize a 16-week training plan to get ready for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon on June 11th. Two weeks before the race, on Memorial Day, I’ll participate (again) in the Bolder Boulder 10K. It’s one of the nation’s largest 10k races, and I love running in it! It should also be a good barometer of my running form.
My triathlon training plan comes from Hypercat Racing, and coach Rachel Sears Casanta (http://www.hypercat.com/rachelsearscasanta.html). I have been doing strength training, and some swimming, since December, and I have three more weeks before the formal plan kicks in. Unfortunately, the starting week of my plan is the same week I’m traveling in Europe, so finding a pool might be tough, and my schedule will definitely be off.
As I get closer to the start of the plan, I’ll start posting more about the 16-week plan details. If I am able to stay mostly compliant with the plan, it’s possible that I’ll have my best race ever!
With that, I’ll say goodbye for now, and until the next post…
