Subject: questions about first 70.3
I have been doing triathlons for 4 seasons now. I've done a bunch of sprint races and two Olympic distance races.

I think I would like to step up to a half iron distance race next year. Does anyone have any experience with this course in Maine?

I know it used to be a rev3 race. Now ironman bought it.

I'll be completing my first half marathon in November.

I have so many questions about going up to the half distance Triathlon. Mainly about how to set up my season.

What other races can I do? Where and when should I do them?
I was thinking of stetting up my season like this.

Early May- half marathon
Late May - sprint tri
June - Olympic tri
July- ?
Late August - Maine 70.3

Looks good. July can be another Olympic or just use it as a solid training block for the 70.3.

Thanks for the input. I was thinking of putting in another Olympic. I want to figure out a training plan and then find where it fits best.

I'm seriously considering a coach. Maybe not for weekly coaching but to just go over a general plan and to set up the season.

I'm really not planning to compete in my age group. I just got competitive in the clydesdale division this year. I got a 3rd and a first place as a Clydesdale. My goal for the 70.3 would be finish. 2nd goal would be to finish without walking.

This thread from 3 years ago might be of interest to you.  LOTS of info on racing 70.3 in general.  I can't comment on anything in Maine but I do have a Challenge St. Stephen 70.3 (in New Brunswick) on my bucket list.
