I haven't been training for so long-where do I begin? I believe my season is over after my half marathon in 2 weeks. I started training early because of my May marathon so I am ready to go into a build base mode.

My first project is to see if I can learn to swim to a point that I can do a Tri. I signed up for classes with a Master's group every Tuesday. There are 3 phases to it. By January 1 , I will have a good idea what the game plan is for next year.

I do have a few things pencilled in already. The first is the Indy 500 half marathon in May. I did it 2 years ago and had a great time. It definitely is not a course to set a PR on but the experince of all the people is great. The other is Galena Tri/Du also in May.

I got out and ran an easy 2 miles tonigh just to see how everything is. I felt ok and hope to run a 10 miler on Saturday.

Waddling and planning ahead............

I think you'll get the swimming down before you know it!

Good luck on your 10 miler on Saturday!

Have you thought about the du in Kalamazoo (it rhymes!) in October?

If you put your mind to it, you can swim well enough to do a tri. Dream it, then do it.

When I started, I could not swim across the pool. It took me a month to get to that point.

Just don't give up and you can do it.

I've been wondering for several months when you would announce you were going to attempt a tri. Congratulations :)

Good will all gel for you.

Do get your registrtion in for the Indy Mini, if you want to run it...they'll fill up by early December, perhaps earlier.

Looking forward to hearing about swimming lessons!!!
