Up bright and early on a Saturday morning, so rather than workout, I'll write about it.
The first month of the year has come and gone and was relatively uneventful. I still haven't got any events firmed up other than running in the Banff / Jasper relay in June. I did this last year with a group from work and it was so much fun. There are some girls in the HR group who have taken to running and their enthusiasm is so refreshing. They organized the team last year and are doing it again this year. The race is not easy to get into and you have register early so they are all over it.
It really is fun to be around them and to see them developing into runners. They have already both run half marathons and are entering races all the time.
As for January I have pretty much stayed in the 8 to 9 hour range as far as the training has gone. A good mix of runs, bikes and swims with the focus just on fitness. February will be more of the same as I try and decide what events to do. I have a weeks holidays in there as well and the break will be nice. Heading off to Mexico with the entire family and looking forward to it.
So after that I will start to kick up the running portion as I will seriously think about a spring marathon. Red Deer and the new one in St. Albert are both possibilities. Then I will have to get some triathlon races sorted out. Today I will put my entry in for the lottery spots at Kona. It is always a long shot, but it is one more possible way of getting into the race.
Enjoy your weekend and happy training.
