…you thought I was nuts with the previous post, that list doesn’t mean I’m going to do ALL of those. Frankly I don’t have the money budgeted to do ALL of them. But those are the events/races I’m considering. The ones noted as ‘A’ races are ones I’m definitely planning on.

I’m still working on my training plan for this winter.

Running-wise I’ll be doing at least 2 runs during the week and a long run on the weekends with the LA Roadrunners (in prep for the marathon).

Cycling….well, I want to focus on endurance and increasing my average speed (to the point I can hang with people doing group rides). I have a Cateye bike computer that does average, max & current speed etc but not cadence. I’m thinking of getting a computer that will tell me cadence as well — anyone have suggestions? It doesn’t need to do a lot of other things like time laps etc.

Swimming — that’s the conundrum.

I’ve signed up for the Total Immersion weekend class the end of this month. I’m hoping that I’ll learn enough to set up a program for myself. Gold’s Gym has a small pool that I can use but I don’t think it’s even 25 yds, so that’s a (free) backup. South Bay Adult School has lap swimming at local high school pools but you end up skipping a few weeks in between sessions. Still investigating the other pools and Master’s groups.
