So This Is Off Season

My Century Ride is 6 months from now.  Vineman Triathlon 8 is months from now.  The ultramarathon is 12 months away. I have a half marathon in a few weeks, but that's at my current training level.  This is the first time in three years I haven't had a big event looming in my immediate future. To my great shock, I'm having an off-season.  I've never had an off-season.  I'm sort of at a loss.

I'm trying to figure out a training schedule.  Oh, and I changed jobs so my entire life schedule has changed too.  I'm just trying to figure it out.  Right now, here's the plan.

Monday: Double Spin Class
Tuesday: Swim
Wednesday: Track run
Thursday: Conditioning
Saturday: Long run

It's lots of new stuff. I've never done track training, but everyone tells me it'll make me much faster. My adventures in spin class have been few and far between, but two hours of high calorie burn can't hurt me.

Off season.  It's harder than I expected.


  1. Changed jobs? I hope the new assignment brings you many wonderful things.

    Doesn't sound like much of an off season to me.

  2. I'm with Roxie - new job? Can't wait to hear about it. I'm thinking it's time I schedule a weekend to visit you during your off season.
