2011-the year of the run. I hope to average 7:30/mile over the course of my 3 duathlons and finish the year at Bronda's with an average run pace of 7:00 across all 4 miles. In August of last year I started adding on the miles pretty quickly and was running 7-9 on a regular basis. This year I will be increasing that so that by August, the Hottest Half Marathon, I will have built up to 20 miles. My goal for the Hottest Half is to complete the 13.1 mile course within 2 hours. That's only a 9:09 pace. Seems doable.
One week after the Hottest Half will be my first triathlon. It is a 350m pool swim, 13 mile bike ride, followed by a 5k run. Our apartment has a pretty decent pool for laps and I'm not too far away from the Frisco Aquatic Center. I plan on going up there on my off days and getting in a good pool workout.
I'm pretty excited about this season. So far I have the 6 USAT events planned plus the race in June with Holly. I'm going to keep my eyes open for a race in May and maybe September or October.
