Pontypool Home Run 10k - February
Blaenavon Triathlon (Oly) - May
Grafman (Half IM) - June
Ironman UK - August
Survival of the Fittest (Cardiff) - October
And probably a few more here and there. Depending on how August goes, might do another marathon later in the year.
My intention (although I haven't actually entered yet) is to start the year with the Benfleet 15 in January.
An idea has just popped into my head, maybe do one event a month through the year?
Hmm, not signed up for owt but couple of club sprint tris plus maybe Stratford Sprint in May, Cambridge Oly, Saffers' club tri which was great, Brighton Marina and possibly sumat half distance around July that I can enter at reasonably short notice.
Plus I may try and do the odd sportive if possible, that is the plan anyway
broke.those are soo similar to my plans.are you stalking me
but i'm doing a different June race
Was the Cardiff half better this year? I ran it last year and it was BORING, 5 miles along dual carriageway, so I didn't bother this year.
I'm not doing the cardiff half..........I'm stoping after September
I hated the cardiff half when i did it years ago and i haven't read anything in the years since that have made me want to go back and redo it
So far, I have planned in:
April - Half MarathonMay - 2 x Sprints + Half IMJun - Derry MarathonJuly - IMCHAug - Half IremanSept - Nothing as yet and maybe soley dedicated for training for Dublin MarathonOct - Dublin Marathon
If I manage to stay well and un-injured, my diary will fit in a couple more half marathons plus a standard tri and a few shorter road races.
I have done Cardiff half for the last 4 years, this years course was the best yet IMO, but knowing Cardiff they will change it again for next year. The dual carrige way section has gone and it started at Cardiff castle and finished at City hall. I enjoyed this years course.
Damn Seren your on to me, will have to change my June plan and do Enduroman instead of Bala.
