Back from our excellent vacation in Italy and right into my training plan. The season will be more of a preparation for next season, but will be fun nevertheless. I will be starting the season off with a min-sprint at the Independence Triathlon at Nockamixon on the first weekend. It is pretty short but should be a good indicator of my off-season fitness levels. I used the off-season to build up to typical training times/distances as I would for a half-ironman, with the intention that our week and half vacation would provide adequate rest to start up again when I got back. The only thing I am worried about is that our vacation was pretty active with long days of hiking. Plugging that in to my TRIMP calculations shows it peaking out my fatigue levels a bit.
Each month has tri-related activities going on, the next only two major races this season. In June I will be doing a Tri Camp up in LP with Troy Jacobsen of Spinervals Fame. Should be a good indicator of how IMLP will be although still not doing it all in one day. In July, I will be heading back up to Lake Placid to volunteer for Ironman Lake Placid 2012 and then register for ironman/lake-placid.aspx” class=”kblinker” target=”_blank” title=”More about Ironman Lake Placid »”>Ironman Lake Placid 2013. Should be motivating!
Anyway, here is the plan…
- June 3rd, Independence Sprint Triathlon
- June 21st, Lake Placid Triathlon Camp
- July 23rd, Ironman Lake Placid Volunteering
- July 24th, IMLP 2013 Registration
- August 12th, Steelman Olympic
- September 9th, Ironman Muskoka 70.3
Should be a fun season and will hopefully stay healthy and build for next year.
