I had a horrendous 2013 race season and missed almost all (Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant, Ironman Mont-Tremblant) of my big races, so I’m going to scale things back for 2014 until I know my anemia issues are gone. Instead of going for my first Ironman in 2014, I am going to do something like the following:
- Toronto Midnight New Year’s Run (unless I decide to do the traditional New Year’s thing.)
- Toronto Women’s Half Marathon (or another half marathon during that month)
- Ironman 70.3 Muskoka (if all goes well at Mont-Tremblant and I’m ready for the hills)
This schedule will probably keep me motivated to train throughout the winter, spring and summer. If I manage to get a solid year of training in and I feel good, I’ll probably consider signing up for an Ironman in 2015.
What do you guys think?
