It was late last night and I started putting together a plan... a long term plan. Now considering I have yet to do a Tri (I might well hate it - bring on Sept 30th, but I kinda wished I had booked an earlier one as I am literally itching to do it!) this may be end up being ambitious/not for me. Caveats aside - here is the outline sketch 2012 May 20th - Bristol 10k - Done Sept 30th - Sprint Tri (Pool) Winter plan - Work on swimming. Get turbo trainer. Probably get involved with BADTri club (esp for the swimming). 2013 Apr/May - Open Water Sprint Maybe do Bris 10k again?July/Aug - Olympic Distance Tri Sept - Bristol Half Marathon? 2014 - really getting blue sky here Maybe 2 x Olympic distance in Apr/May/June July/Aug - Half IM? My kind of (secret-ish - well not now! goal is to do a Full IM distance tri before I hit the big 3-0... got 4.5 years left... Anyone else busy planning their Tri-life years in advance? Or maybe you've been and done the planning and come out the otherside. Do you wish you were more/less ambitious?
