Damn, it’s been a long time since I last posted. Life is busy: tried to sell the condo – failed; studying for the CPA exam – better NOT fail; enjoying watching Bobbi work toward her goal of running a half marathon.
I think I’m going to take a different approach to racing in 2011. Since I won’t be able to “train” hard until after 5/26/11 due to the CPA exam, there’s no way I’ll be able to be competitive in crits. While I’m hoping I’ll be good to go for CX, I think I’ll incorporate a Olympic Distance Triathlon into my training regimine.
Currently looking at the Chicago Triathlon at the end of August (even though the thought of swimming in Lake Michigan gives me the creeps….blech) or the Lake Geneva Triathlon in September. I’m 100% confident I can complete the run and the bike legs, but the swimming leg will be nerve racking in open water with everyone else. Swimming has never been my strong suit (as Bobbi can attest), but with a little training, I’m sure I can avoid drowning. What would make this experience even better would be for Bobbi to compete in it with me. Guess we’ll see
In other news, CX is right around the corner. With the CPA exam in full swing, you’ll probably see me laboring in the back due to lack of adequate training. If that’s the case, please give me a beer. See you at the races.
