Run - 2.7 miles 21:50
*same distances as my first sprint triathlon
I will also be competing in several events along the way to help get a clear picture of how everything works around the start/finish and transition areas. Here is a current list of my competition events.
Sept 6 - Wurst Tri Ever - New Braunfels, TX (400m/14m/2.7)
Sept 27 - Kerrville Triathlon (Olympic Distance 1000m/29m/6.4m)
Nov 8 - Tour de Gruene - 65m bike
Dec 7 - Rock and Roll Marathon San Antonio (26.2m)
Mar 30 - Tall Texan Half Ironman (1.2m/56m/13.1m)
May 16 - Ironman Texas (2.4m/112/26.2)
As of today there is 270 days until May 16 to train and prepare for this challenge. I am looking into coaches at this time as well as nutrition options. I have learned that nutrition is very important so that as I lose calories I am able to replenish my body and maintain enough energy to finish. It is going to be a learning experience both mentally and physically and I am excited to get on a formal training schedule.
