My 2015 Endurance Event Plan

I titled this an event plan because it is not necessarily a race plan.  A few of the events I plan to participate in do not like to be called races.  OK, fine, semantics aside it is my plan for 2015.  An international move will also be involved within this plan, and though that is not necessarily a sanctioned endurance event where I might receive a medal, or finishers certificate, doing such requires endurance of a different type.  I also know that an international move shoots a hole in my schedule for consistent training due to packing, travel, time zone fatigue, bike transit time, etc.  The last three or so years I have usually planned an endurance heavy early spring, and then specialized throughout the summer and early fall.  This year is similar.

or

July 31st-August 1st- DOXA Relay Races website

Early September-Alaska Trip

September 25th-26th- Salt to Saint Relay website

In the recent past I have set up my decreased intensity months as February, June, and October, and this year it will be the same out of luck more than anything.  With this schedule my A race is the Half in August, where I will seek redemption from my not so stellar 70.3 performance in September.  I am also a little worried about the Half Marathon in the spring being only a week after the 300KM Brevet, but I can’t allow myself to miss out on my German hometown’s Half Marathon while I still live here.  The last event of the schedule (SalttoSaint) is also tentative as I don’t know how I will be feeling at that point and whether I will want to be away from the family for another weekend in the month of September.  All planned it should be an eventful year.  So as the artist formerly known as Snoop once sang, “come along with me…”
