This is week #1 of training for the 2010 season. I have 48 weeks left until my last race, 16 until the first World Cup of the season, 16 until I race my first World Championship Series triathlon in Sydneyâ€¦ I look at these numbers and start to wonder why Iâ€™m sitting on my trainer in Seattle, where itâ€™s 30 degrees outside. Am I crazy? This season I plan to run around 3000 miles, ride my bike for nearly 15,000 miles, and swim a cool thousand miles. Suddenly 48 weeks doesnâ€™t seem like nearly enough time! Can I put in extra now and earn vacation time this summer? (Ironically, yes, but the â€œvacationâ€ will come in the form of rehab.)
Iâ€™m excited for what lies ahead, and feel privileged to even have the opportunity to attempt the summit.
