This is always the question after the completion of a big event. I will save you the head drama and list a few ideas below:
1. Ironman – no budget for this but still a wish and goal I have
2. Challenge to Conquer Cancer Cycle Relay – October 2010 - no way I will miss being a part of this next year
3. Rockmont Challenge – 12/24 hr Trail Run – May 2010 - With a $30 registration fee how could I pass up being on the trails again
4. Cycle Events – Several local events that I will be a part of during the winter and will continue through next year
So really the Ironman will be the only “wish list” event that I do not see happening in 2010. I am tossing around a Half Ironman here in SC next October so I have plenty of time to figure that out.
For now I have decided to switch over to Winter conditioning. Meaning I will continue to cycle but will also toss in some crossing training runs with some yoga and strength training. I am not going to overly stress if I miss working out one day here and there. Mentally this time of year you just need to let go and relax. I want to go into next year refreshed and ready to enjoy another great year.
Thank you all for the amazing comments on my last post and providing me such encouraging support leading up to the trip to Austin. Tomorrow night I will rejoin a lot of my team for a night ride from a local bike shop. Love that I am going to put my bike light to use!
