So, my half marathon is done. I did my 5K goal for the year. What's next?
There's a local race at the end of June/early July.. I was looking to go for it 3 years ago, but Mrs. Raul was put on bed rest before mini-Raul's arrival. (Who knew, that would be the last rest she'd get?) I wasn't in tip-top shape, but it would have been fun.
When I was up at Fleet Feet, I bought one more thing:
Tri shorts, baby!
Yes, the local race is a sprint tri. I'm going to dip my toe into the water and see how it is. I've started biking a couple of times a week. At the very least, it's some nice cross training. I'm waiting for the parks and pools to open up this weekend, so that I can get a wee bit of swimming in.
And, as a special bonus, I found out there's a first ever "micro" tri a few weeks before the sprint tri. I got my application in there, and I made the cut (only 100 racers allowed). I'm waiting for my check to get cashed for the sprint, and I should be set.
I have no goals for these races, I'm just looking to have a little fun and give the sport a shot. I figure that I will have minimal swim time before these races, and only moderate bike time. At my level of fitness, I also figure that I can muddle through the race and survive.
Depending on how these go, I hopefully will get a clue on what race(s) I want to go with for the fall. My race plan runs out at the end of June.. I seriously am lost where to go next. lol
Keep on rockin!
