List of Tentative Races for 2006

Yesterday afternoon I went to the smaller swimming pool (25 meters long) in the neighboring town of Stutensee-Blankenloch and swam for 45 minutes (1000+ meters). The pool was busy, the kids have school vacation this week, so I was playing dodge the swimmer/kid/parent. I guess I am super relaxed from being on vacation as this didn’t seem to bother me, I just thought of it as good training for triathlon swimming :-)

Today I want to go on a 14K/8.7M run, easy pace. Friday is a holiday in Germany so I want to move my 30K/19M long run from Saturday to Friday morning. My wife wants to visit her friend in the Rhineland-Pfalz on Sunday so I conveniently found a 15K race in a nearby town where they can meet and gab while I run.

I spent some time identifying some races that I would like to do in 2006. I will probably need to adjust this from time to time depending on outside influences.

Looks like you will be busy, Jack. Not sure about running a 10k less than 2 weeks after a marathon, but it depends on how fast you want to run it, of course.
That's a lotta races.
So ambitious! Looks like a snap for you. One little area looks particularly interesting; the half in April just a few weeks after the marathon in March? I'll be interested to hear if you were up to that one after all! Lots of 10ks, which I think is a lovely distance, too. Two marathons. *shakes head* You nut!
