My 2013 Races, etc.

2012 brought with it fewer foot races than in previous years and more century rides.  It was a none Ironman 140.6 year.  The same is not true for 2013.  I'm already registered for the 2013 Ironman Florida triathlon on November 2nd.  In addition to that race I plan to do the TryCharleston 70.3 triathlon on April 20th.  To allow for 20 weeks of training for each race I have a December 2nd, 2012 start date for the 70.3 and a June 16th start date for the 140.6.  See my 70.3 plan here and my 140.6 plan here.  The fewer foot races seems to have reduced my effectiveness in triathlons.  That said, I enjoy the centuries more so that part of my schedule will likely continue through 2013.  I'll just have to pay more attention to my run training to compensate.

So without any further ado; here's my tentative race/ride schedule for 2013.
