I feel a little like the poor guy who always used to bad mouth the rich. Then one day I got to live the life of a rich man and loved it. Then I was banished back to being a poor guy again...and now I wish I could go back....
So it is with Kona!
The reality is I probably won't be able to and if that is so, what should my triathlon focus/objcectives be?
I'm working on 2011 and will get a plan together soon...
Elements will include:
Oceanside--but no Kona slot this year with the XC changes
IMAZ--my next real attempt at Kona--but for Kona 2012.
4-6 Olympic distance races--the first time I've gone after that distance (I've only done 7 so far)
Maybe another 70.3 and maybe take a shot at the 70.3 World Chapionship in Las Vegas
Lots of fun sprints
for sure--early season focus on speed/turn to IM training as late as August...
I wish I could go back--I'm happy I got to go!
