I've been working on my goals and training plan for 2011. They aren't quite done. The short version is that I have 2 70.3's on deck (June and September), a spring half marathon with my husband (his first), and hopefully a few more shorter races (either to race or to volunteer). I want to PR in my September 70.3. I want to go sub 3:00 on a bike split of one of my HIMs and not blow up on the run. I want to improve my run (endurance, speed, hills...all of it) by leaps and bounds. I want to find a way to keep up with strength training and core work throughout the year.

In the midst of that I will graduate (finally!) from my PhD program and I'm in the process of finding a job for this first post-doc year. James took a job in Boston so, it looks like there will NOT be a move this summer. Hopefully my landlady agrees!


  1. Happy New year! Great goals! What HIMs are you doing?

  2. Happy New Year! Love your goals, and what and awesome 2010! AND congrats on the PHd graduation!!

  3. Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog. If you do a pseudo half-IM, schedule the first about 10 weeks and the second 4 weeks before your race (doing two is fine).

    Btw, saw your Twitter that you swam over 4k! Go girl, it's been ages since I've done that lol.
