Quick update

My big goal this year is the Prarieman Half-Iron Man (they call it a "long distance triathlon" so as to not infringe on the M-Dot peeps). I need to formulate a training plan. I've got a book and some ideas, but I'm also exploring some public plans. I'm not sure what will work for me. I suppose I need to first determine what my goal is for the race. Time? Comfort? Just to finish? I think I'll set a 6 or so hour goal time. That may change with some training.

Here's what's on tap for this season so far:
5/2: Run for the Zoo (10K PR goal)
5/9: Jay Benson (PR goal)
6/5: Xterra Four Corners (goal of not making an ass out of myself)
7/4: Grady Williams (goal of avenging last year's dismal showing)
8/1 La Luz Trail Run (depending on the fate of the lottery system)
8/8: Socorro?
8/22: Los Alamos?
9/12: Prarieman. Get some.
9/26: Elephant man. (goal of placing in AG)

As soon as I have a training plan, I'll throw it up on the blog.

One more thing. I had the pleasure of driving 16 hours over the past two days. I filled the monotony with some podcasts from Zen and the Art of Triathlon. Pretty good stuff.

Socorro is a good one, you know it is. Do it, do it, do it! How did the Run for Zoo treat you?

Socorro is great. I always love doing it. I just have to see how the schedule plays out.

Run for the Zoo was ok. Some serious foot pain limited my goal. Still, a new PR.

Glad to see you're working hard for Kona.
