Well, with my "A" race completed and mission accomplished in getting to the 70.3m World Championships on November 10, I need to plan the rest of the season and make sure that I am at my best down in Clearwater (the aim for that race is to go under 4hrs 30mins). So over the past week I have been looking at what other races and events I plan to do, here's the initial list;
June 23rd - Church Creek 40km Time Trial
July 8th - Blackwater Traverse Duathlon (World Long Distance Qualifier)
July 22nd - Silver Spring Downtown Criterium
August 4th - Catoctin 50km Trail Run
August 26th - North East Triathlon
September 2nd - Greenbelt 15km
September 9th - Delaware Diamondman Triathlon
September 29th - Great Eastern 50km Trail Run
October 7th - Bassman Triathlon
November 10th - 70.3m World Championships
November 18th - Cold Turkey 10km
You might have noticed that the Blackwater Traverse Duathlon is a qualifier for the Duathlon Long-Distance World Championships which are being held in Richmond, VA in October. Now, having never done a Duathlon (run-bike-run) I have no idea how well I can do, but it would be cool to qualify for the WC.....3 spots per age group are awarded at Blackwater, we shall see on the day! Funnily though I would be representing the USA if I were to qualify.
I also have a couple of Ultra events on the schedule and so have started to hit the trails again. I had planned on doing a 50 miler in November but in qualifying for the 70.3m WC that quashed that idea as the races are only a week apart. I will have to wait until 2008 for my first 50 miler (Bull Run in April?) and then 2009 perhaps for a 100 miler.
- So this Ironman triathlon thing.....
- Already looking forward to the next #gravelstoke adventure on the @van_dessel FTB. While the NCR Trail isn't the most technical or adventurous there is something to be said for just being able to ride for 80 miles and not having to think about where you are going! . . . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #fulltiltboogie #gravelstokedevteam #gravelride #vandessel #cycling #ciclismo #instabike #ridemd
