My Challenges

As I train for multiple endurance events, I will be updating my blog on my progress. It is finally spring in New England. We had been averaging 20 degrees below normal until Thursday this week. Triathlon training started this week with everyone happy for the warmer weather to get out on their bikes.

I am still in Build Training cycle for my first event: Pinelands 25K Trail Race on May 25th. This week I was a little short of training because missing 1 swim but did 8:39 of training. Most of the trainers I work with think I am crazy but for endurance junkies I am very normal.

Today, I was tired for my long run but one of my triathletes and friend help me got through it. At least the trails have no ice and wasn’t muddy. Went from winter gear to warm weather gear. My friend, Sharon told me her races she plans to do this fall: Smuttynose Half Marathon and Ghost Train Trail 15 mile. 2 more races to add to my schedule. My next big race after the 25K is Punkinman Half Ironman in September.

Next weekend, is the GAC Mother Day Run on trails. Great tune up before Pinelands 25K Trail Race and last long run.
