2011 Race Schedule **(with asterisks)

Browse By

I’ve been collecting and planning for the last few weeks, looking to solidify my race schedule for 2011. Then I’ve been meaning to post the schedule for the last 2 weeks, but just haven’t been able to get around to it. **

I have set some specific time goals in my mind for this year in all race distances from the Mile to the Marathon. As part of the Fleet Feet Boulder Master’s team I plan on getting out and representing as much as possible. That being said, remaining healthy this year will be the number one goal, improving my fitness and lowering my race goals will be #2.

Yet, I post this schedule with hesitancy, because as I write this I feel a pain in my right 5th metatarsal, something that came about at the end of an easy run yesterday. I felt the pain a few weeks ago, but ran on it the next day in a “normal” running shoe with little instance and have felt nothing since then. I’ve done hard workouts, long runs, runs on trails and in snow.

If it manifests itself, this will be the 3rd fractured metatarsal in as many years (I’ve never broken anything before). I planned on keeping up with some level of cross training throughout the year (Water Running, Cycling, Gym)** but it looks like I need to jump back into it head first over the next few weeks in order to get to my first race of the year: Cross Country Nationals Feb 5, in San Diego, CA #XCNats

** My post on Goals for 2011 will contain my plan of cross training, fitness goals, being social, general well being and procrastination will be posted in the near future.

So with all that, here is my best laid plan for the time being. I will modify as I feel strong and when opportunity presents itself. (Some races don’t have dates yet here, as there is either no info yet, or I just didn’t get it yet.)
