Even though I am less than two months into my three month racing season, I am already starting to feel a little burned out. I planned on doing 3 Stroke & Strides and 2 Duathlons. As it sits, I will probably cancel the last duathlon and replace it with a 2.4 mile open water swim.
I am still getting a lot out of my training sessions, but the thought of assembling all the gear and pushing at race pace is not appealing.
Another factor is a hectic family schedule in August and September as my wife will be traveling for work and my parents will be coming to town for a week.
I am hoping that a quiet season wind down will keep me poised to be more disciplined this winter in terms of keeping a solid training base. In addition to the Chilly Cheeks events, Racing Underground is sponsoring a the Ralston Creek Half Marathon February 12.
