It's been a full year since my last episode of Tri Chat. While it wasn't my intention, my overly ambitious schedule last year has left me a little burnt out.
I had lost that loving feeling for training and triathlon in general. I didn't want to feel that way. I want to be able to enjoy the sport for many years to come. You can check out my blog post about being ready to train again.
I still plan to qualify for Boston in my 70's (or sooner)
My 2018 Race schedule:
I changed my strategy this year and only I'm only racing short races for fun.
My 2019 Race schedule:
Monday night speed/hill work is all about the following:
While I am feeling better and getting some more runs in, I'm still not ready to race this year. But, thankfully, I have friends who are just crushing it this triathlon season.
We will be hearing from them in the coming weeks. We will follow their journey. They will share their training, struggles, successes with us.
At the time that I am recording this, the Muskoka 70.3 is tomorrow. A special shout out to 2 of my Baydogs Dany and Danielle who are both racing their first 70.3 in the morning. I can't wait to hear all about it.
We would love to hear from you. Please send us your race reports and you can be featured on one of our upcoming podcasts.
You can send a written report, with photos, similar to what you post on facebook, or you can also send an audio file that we can play on the podcast. This really is the preferred method for sharing your race report. I love to hear your voice.
I've registered and NOT registered for races based on other peoples race reports.
Creating and sending an audio file is easier than you think. Most smart phones come equipped with a voice recording app. On the iPhone, it's called voice memos.
Open the app, follow the steps and when you are happy with the recording, share via email to firstname.lastname@example.org Voila.
If you like our show, please help spread the word and tell 3 friends. Subscribe to Tri-Chat podcast so you always know when the new episodes come out.
Until Next time, have a great active week.
