Westport St. Patrick's Day Run - 4 Mile

This pretty much sums it up.  I should be working on some web site projects but I'm comfortable on my couch looking for fellow triathletes on twitter and thinking about my upcoming race.

This is my anniversary race.  Last year this was my first organized race (chasing after the dog down the street doesn't count, I guess).  I was planning for this race to be a big PR jump.  I did the race in just over 30 minutes last year and I was hoping for a 28 minute (7:00 minute pace, for those calculator challenged) this year.  Due to lack of training (no excuses),  I'm just hoping for another 4 mile PR.

As you can see to the right of the page, I have a lot of races scheduled for this year.  The first four solo races are shorter 4 - 6 mile types and then I hit Hospital Hill in June.  I will definitely work towards a specific training plan for that race.  My hopes are to blow away my PR of 1:54.  The only thing that might throw a hitch in that is I've penciled in the KC Tri in May.  I'm probably doing too much too fast but I'm really falling in love with doing these events.  We'll see if that translates to triathlons... possibly in May.
