Juggling Act

I decided a few weeks ago that I would stretch my racing experiences by competing at God’s Country Duathlon. I’ve always done a little running in preparation for cross season, but I’ve never done any real training. Last week, being 8 weeks from the race date, I decided to plan a training schedule. Somehow I have to mix running in with a heavy cycling load. I read a few blogs and Troy Jacobson’s web site, and settled on what seems like a pretty routine mix. I even have bricks on my calendar. woo-woo!

As I planned out the weeks leading up the race day, I noticed something concerning: the Ouachita Challenge, a 60-mile endurance MTB race in the hills of Arkansas, is the weekend before God’s Country. Is it possible to compete in an endurance event and turn around the next weekend for a short run/ride race? March could prove to be an interesting training month!
