The first thing I thought when I got out of bed this morning is, â€œI need a new goal.â€ :) I am too goal-oriented and internally competitive for my own good! I am still very happy with my marathon, but I need something NEW! I just love to challenge myself physically and accomplish new things.
Whatâ€™s on the menu for the upcoming months? Here are the races that Iâ€™ve set in stone:
The Wildman Triathlon â€“ March 14, 2010
I will be completing the Olympic Triathlon, a 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, and 5.6 mile run. This will be my second triathlon â€“ I was disqualified from the first because I had a panic attack during the swim and quit! :( I canâ€™t wait to â€œcompleteâ€ a triathlon.
Ride to Remember â€“ May 15, 2010
Coming off my triathlon, I hope to extend my bicycling and complete a century bike ride, which is 100 miles. I have done a metric century (60 miles) before, but I want to do the BIG one!
A Weight Lifting Challenge â€“ Ongoing
One aspect of my fitness that I would really like to work on is my strength. So, once I settle down from the marathon, I will be creating a Weight Lifting Challenge for the blog (that you can participate in, too!). Iâ€™m going to be enlisting the help of some personal trainers who really know their strength-training stuff. Stay tuned!
I MIGHT have some other race tricks up my sleeve. 🙂
What are your goals right now?
