Plans for the Year

It’s apparent I need to get busy. 

I have the KC Triathlon in May.

Ironman Louisville in August.

The KC Marathon in October.

I hope to do another race in July but I’m still working on the schedule.

I’m not worried too much about the KC Tri. It’ll be tough, but it’s just an olympic distance race and that seems like a warm up when you have an Iroman race on the schedule. I am concerned about the Ironman race in August. That date is looming larger and larger. The training worries me in that I hope I’m doing the right things at the right time, but there are also a lot of logistics to work out, like hydration and nutrition throughout the race. The KC Marathon, however, seems like a fun way to end the season. Having completed it already this last year there is less anxiety about how I’ll perform. Besides, I figure if I get through Louisville in August the marathon ought to be a cake walk! Right?

To hold me a little more accountable and to challenge me more I plan to post some of my training stats here throughout the year. I don’t know yet what format that will take but perhaps if I put them out here for all the world to see (because up to two or three people may read one of these posts) I’ll strive to post better and more impressive numbers which will do nothing but help me in my races.

So, for the first stats of the year: 42 years old, male, 71.5″, 154.5 lbs.

About The Pretend Triathlete

Just a 46 year old trying to stay in shape. Not pro-athlete in shape, just 46 year old guy with a family and a house and a job in shape. Signing up for races is the best way I've found to do that. I blog about things that happen to me and things I observe while training and racing. Let's do this!
