I know, I know. I haven't blogged in forever. I was pretty sick this past week so I didn't really get any training in. I have been spending some time trying to figure out which races I want to do this year and which of those I want to be my A races. I was supposed to do my first sprint triathlon next Sunday but I have been having issues with my knees when I bike and since the course is super hilly I decided to skip the race. I hadn't registered yet so it isn't that big of a deal, although I am pretty bummed about not doing it. I thought signing up for another race that weekend instead would take my mind off of the triathlon, so I signed up for the New Balance Women's 5K in Baltimore. I haven't really been training for a 5K but I am super excited to do another one and hopefully PR!
As for the rest of the year, I am planning on doing a flat sprint triathlon in August and the Baltimore Half Marathon in October. These two will be my A races and the two that I will train for. I am planning on doing some 5Ks throughout the year to keep racing and monitoring progress but nothing more than that. I am thinking about also signing up for a 30 mile bike ride in July to practice biking with lots of other people. It isn't a race, which is awesome.
I am also thinking about races for next year, which might include the Musselman 70.3 Half Ironman and the Philadelphia Marathon!
