• 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1
• 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)
Hey, and my time yesterday would have netted me 4th place!
52° 21' North, 4° 52' East
Actually, I'm sorta wondering if I want to do 2, now. Not that that race wouldn't be really fun, but that 10 miler I did so miserably on 6 weeks ago would be only a week before that first HM and I really don't know if I could do 2 major races like that so close together. And I REALLY want to replace my PR on that crappy 10 miler...so we'll see.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
Kristen, by then you'll have so much running under your belt that you could probably use the 10 miler ( the one a week before the race) as a training run and still get a PR on it while doing 2 HM.
