So I had a huge birthday back in September and (don’t tell anyone) She Who Must Be Obeyed also has a big birthday coming up. To celebrate we’ve decided to head out for a romantic getaway to London and Paris (well, as romantic as you can get with 9 and 7 year olds in tow!). What does this have to do with triathlon? Well, not a huge amount other than the fact that the trip will fall right when peak training should be taking place for my previously scheduled “A” Olympic distance race – Over The Mountain at the end of May.
Changes are already afoot for my 2011 race calendar! Here goes:
April 9th I have added the Cary Short Course Dualthlon (C) (run, bike, run for the uninitiated). Cary, NC
May 15th I have added the White Lake II Sprint Distance Triathlon (B). White Lake, NC.
I have scrapped the Over The Mountain Olympic Distance Race in late May and replaced it with:
June 18th Bandits Challenge Olympic Distance Triathlon (A) Wilkesboro, NC.
I think that I actually like this schedule better! Updated web links in the right hand column.
In other news, the Puppeteer managed to sneak some yoga in to the end of a recent strength workout. This is new territory for me, so I had to look up “the pigeon”; “the lizard” and "the downward dog". I doubt that I looked very serene or “zen like”, but I gave them my best shot. Hommmmmmmm!
Which does have its risks.......
