My season is normally planned earlier than this, but I’ve finally made my plans for the year. I’ve decided to focus on the Czechman Tour Triathlon Series, the long distance competition here in the Czech Republic. You score points for each race you do and the best three results make your season total. I am also hoping to do a different Ironman race at the end of the season, possibly Challenge Vichy or Elbaman in Italy.
My calendar to date:
|6th April||Prague Half Marathon
My brother is coming over to run with me. This will be the second time I have run there and I am looking forward to taking part in such a large running event again.
|1st May||Duathlon Brehy
A local duathlon (5-20-2.5) to test my fitness before the season starts properly.
|11th May/18th May||Linz Half Ironman/Vienna Half Ironman
I will probably go to Linz with a friend of mine and our families. It’s a beautiful location for a short break and a beautiful race.
|1st June||Czechman (Half Ironman)
The first long distance triathlon on the Czech calendar and the biggest race in the country with over 400 participants. This will be my second time racing at the new venue and I am hoping to improve on my time last season and go under 4h30
|22nd June||Moraviaman (Ironman)
The first Ironman in the Czech triathlon series, and it will also be my second time here. It is very convenient as it is only 1 hour from my home and there is accommodation right at the race start.
|3rd August||Slovakman (Ironman)
This will be my third race in the Czech triathlon series and it will be my third time here. I like this race and the course is flat and fast. I am hoping to ride the bike leg in under 5 hours here this year…..
|1st September||Challenge Vichy/Ironman 70.3 Sell am Zee
The end of the season is still a little unsure for me, there are a number of races I would like to do but this will most likely be my last race weekend of the season.
|October||Hoping to go to England in October to run with my brother|
