Thanks for the goal help! It's hard to decide what to do after a race. I need to keep setting goals to get to where I really want to be.

I'm still trying to figure out which will be my A race. San Fran or Long Beach?

This is a great way to train. I never really thought about it, I usually just do 5 and 10K's that sound fun knowing I am eventually going to do the LA Triathlon. If I were to plan what races I intend to do as part of my training and prioritize them, I would probably see better results!

Janey and I went to a great lecture on Training for an Endurance Event and I wanted to share some of the information we got!!! I’ll start with goal setting!!!

1. Determine season goals…how many and what races will you be running???
2. If it is reasonably achievable, no matter how big, then it is no longer a dream…it is a GOAL
3. Goals must be measurable
4. Goals should be challenging but realistic and attainable
5. Goals need to be under your control
6. Always think of goals in the positive
7. Pick a focus race or races
8. Plan training according to these races:

*Prioritize races A, B or C

*A races are highest priority and ALL training will be built around these races

*B races are important but you will train through them without peaking

*C races are merely hard workouts to test progress

*Determine how much time you can spend on each training phase

*Decide if and when you want to do a smaller, warm-up race

*Include 3 days-2 weeks of rest in your training plan before your focus race


I met with my running coach last week and we devised a training plan for my current racing season!!!

My A race is the Long Beach Marathon on Oct 11th

My B race is the San Francisco 1/2 Marathon on July 26th

My C race is the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon on September 6th

I also have a possible 8k river race on April 19th but if I run it, it will be for fun and training more than for time!!!

What does you race season look like...do you have a PLAN to reach your GOALS???

Jackie!!!
