when to schedule a half for next year
So, Here I am 3 days before my first tri in a long time. 2 weeks after that I have another one. Both sprint distances here in Oregon. I've mainly been cycling this year and the last month has been focused on running, being a clydesdale this is the hardest part for me. However I wanted to start planning for next year, if I don't get it scheduled I just don't do anything (Newton's first law kinda thing). So I was going to have a goal of a Half Ironman, some Olympic distances and then of course some sprints thrown in. Training time is not an issue for me.
I was just wondering when I should try to schedule the BIG event. Towards the beginning of the race season so that I'm not too beat up to do it, or towards the end of the season when I have even more training done? Any suggestions.
