Relay! Considering my level of fitness at the time of the race I'm amazed I did so well. It helped that it was only 10 miles.
What would you do differently?:

Train more? This was a fun race so no complaints from me.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Absolutely tanked coming into T2. I was sprinting through transition and hit a hole or something, front wheel spun sideways and I went over the bike like an idiot.

Event comments:

Great local race for first timers or relay participants. Folks at the host YMCA are super friendly despite the onslaught of hundreds of athletes on their tiny facility.

At mile ten I heard a noise like I had gotten paper in my spokes or something. I looked but saw nothing but a few seconds later my rear tire blows out.

Are these races too close together to give me any sort of recovery? Will I be spent and unhappy racing back to back weekends and then again two weeks after that?

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

The challenge? The accomplishment? I want to do this because it is an opportunity to live life. The event is an indoor sprint triathlon. I get to experience the challenge on a safer scale.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

Since your “A” race is your marathon, which you stated in your question, this should be your main focus. I encourage you to taper a bit for the sprint distance triathlon.
