Beach where the Vancouver Tri starts
After a few e-mail with my coach yesterday, I will now be adding a second 1/2 IM to my race list for 2009. In addition to the Victoria 1/2 IM on June 21, I will also be doing the Vancouver 1/2 IM on July 12. Two 1/2 IMs in three weeks...maybe the best way to train is to race.
I had also planned a training trip to Penticton on the August 1st long weekend to ride the Ironman Canada course. My coach suggested coming up two weeks before IMC instead to ride the course. Riding the full course two weeks before the race seems a little unorthodox but what do I know?
