38 Weeks—It’s Like a Baby!

Ok, so it’s going to be another bucket list smashing year! I signed up for Vineman Ironman 70.3 yesterday, yes, that’s a half-Ironman, my first. Registration started at 09:00 PST, sharp, and I was registered by 09:01—good thing I got on as soon as registration opened, as the event sold out in THREE hours! So, July 15, 2012 is circled in big red marker.

38 Weeks and Counting

Vineman in July gives me 38 weeks to prepare—my Half-Ironman Gestation Program!! We won’t have the Portland Triathlon Club training plans for several more weeks and I wanted to start my training now, so am starting with the Half-Ironman plan from Beginnertriathlete.com. This will give me a great start for when the PTC plan comes out. So far it has been a vigorous workout week, and this is just the prep. The first day was a total of 1.6 mile lap swimming. This time last year, I couldn’t even swim a full lap—what an improvement!

2012 Portland Triathlon Club Board

This weekend marks the first of the Saturday PTC coached training swims at Parkrose High School in Portland. It’s a 28 week program, $85 for full program or $5 drop-in for members ($100 for series and $10 drop-in for non-members). I’m really looking forward to this! Check out the website or Facebook page for more information on signing up.

Portland Triathlon Club 2012 Board

I think I forgot to mention that we elected a new board for 2012. I’m very excited to be working on the board as Membership Chair! The Board is full of great people with great energy and we’re looking forward to a fantastic year with lots of great events. We’re working on a new and improved website, more workout and social events, and will have details on the 2012 race team coming out in the next couple of weeks.
That’s it for this week’s installment. I should have another vegan nutrition post soon, been eluding to it all summer and now that things have slowed down race-wise, I have more time to devote to it.

Have a great week!
