Question about scheduling

I'm having a training program made up by trainingbible.com to compare to what I am using right now, and toposibbly use when my current 10 week session is finished. However, the program requires that I know what races I am going to do.

Do races usually occur on the same date year to year? I haven't been able to find a 2003 schedule, so I'm trying to piece something together based on the 2002 schedule.

I assume this would be your first season racing? I'm doing basically the same thing right now, and to tell you the truth, I'm going to play it by ear and not worry about peaking because it will be my first season. until I really know what to expect I don't think there is a really good way to pre plan it all, without having 'some' experience.

some events tend to occur around the same time as the previous year however the days might be adjusted to fall on a weekend.

You should be able to ask the question at TrainingBible (or any coaching web-site) and get some suggestions... I doubt it's an unusual problem.

You should join a race team/club.

They will better inform you of the latest events and such.

I'm in SC. I went to Racelistings.com and I can get in touch with race contacts and websites(some have 2003 dates) so I'm good to go right now.
