With the Princess Half over I’m on to the next challenge! The biggest challenge being…..DECIDING. I’m not quite sure what my summer will look like, but I’ve got a few options…
My biggest decision lies in Grandma’s Marathon. I completed it in 2013, and while my pace was slow and I was injured I think I could train smarter this time around. Less running, more biking and swimming.
Triathlon: I don’t want to lose my momentum from last year’s triathlon success. I volunteered at the Zorbaz Gull Lake Swim, and would love to do it this year, but I can’t decide on a distance. If I was doing Grandma’s Marathon, I would probably do the 1.2 mile just to save my endurance. However for $20 more dollars to do double the distance sounds good!
Woman Lake: The bike or run around Woman Lake requires some discussion with Emily. I would love to be able to stay at her parent’s cabin on Friday night before the race, but seeing as my birthday is April 30th, I would want to shower and go home after the race so I can celebrate the Kentucky Derby at Lonesome Pine.
AUGUST: I’ve had my eye on SuperiorMan for a long time. I’ve got quite a few friends in the Lakes Area Multisport team participating in Ironman Madison, so there should be plenty of opportunities for long swims/bikes/runs this summer, but again I can’t decide what distance to do. The prices I posted include the VIP package which allows you to switch course or defer, which is the way to go when you don’t completely know what your body is capable of and how training will go.
What races would you do? Is there a great race that I should be considering that I’m not already?
