Planning for 2014

Neon stars.

With only 10 weeks left in 2013, I thought I should start planning for next year. My five-year plan included the following for next year:

2014 1600m swim 63-mile sportive (IoW) Marathon Sprint

I haven’t booked a 1600m swim yet, but I may do Bournemouth Pier to Pier swim in July 2014. For cycling, I may do the Wiggle All Wight Sportive. I’ve already booked my place in Brighton Marathon in April 2014. I completed two sprint distance triathlons this year, so maybe I should up the ante.

The events listed below are ones that I’ve entered or am thinking of entering:


  • CC6                                               05/01/14 (cross country race – no entry fee if running for a local club)
  • Stubbington 10k                        19/01/14 entered


  • CC6                                              09/02/14 (cross country race – no entry fee if running for a local club)
  • Charlton Duathlon                    23/02/14 not entered yet


  • CC6                                                02/03/14  (cross country race – no entry fee if running for a local club)

Yes, you read that correctly!!! My lovely other half has entered both of us into the half iron distance Challenge event that will take place in Weymouth in 2014. Only this afternoon, I was explaining my sensible long-term triathlon plan to a colleague at work – oops, I’ve blown that now!

324 days to go!
