This week I have been looking at the race schedule for 2009. Most of it is already locked into place as the big triathlons sell-out way in advance and so they were bagged last year!
I have therefore been looking at the early season triathlons and road races on the MABRA schedule to make sure that I am suitably prepped when the big triathlons, the "A" races come around. So far it is looking like the early months will be a busy time before settling down for the summer months of Ironman training. Could really do with some nice sunny, hot weather for training atm....once again it's onto the treadmill tonight. Next week I will post a 2008 season review and the tentative race schedule for 2009.
The road conditions look ok for the weekend rides so the Davidsonville ride can kick my ass again!
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
