    I am not very imaginative so I will want to do events I like with a few others thrown in but definitely (barring clashes):
    Mansfield Sprint
    Woodhall Spa Sprint
    Lincoln Sprint
    Nottingham Sprint
    Norwich OD

    Lincoln 10K
    Woodhall Spa 10K

    And then see what else tickles my fancy but I would like to do more open water rather than pool events
  • that a lot of races and very organized , do you race for a club or train with a club

    Me I am looking to do

    ripon and weatherby and a couple of qualifiers for the worlds in the olympic distance next year
  • Looking to do three sprints, probably at Dorney, Interspersed with Tough Guy in January, Paddock Wood half mara in March(?) and London Brighton Cycle in June. Been to Staples, got the year wall planner and gonna work out training this weekend. Won't stick to it mind, more of a working document.

    Paddock Wood HAlf-I did that last year-and although it's flat and fast it is a pretty dull route. If you're from round that neck of the woods try the Tunbridge Wells Half in Feb-or even the Maidstone Half (much better than it sounds!) a week this Sunday.

    Hey Pacman

    I have supprised mself with my organisation (in fact have finished my goals and training plan and it doesn't even start till Feb!!) I had a really quiet week in a cottage in Skye and put most of it together there.

    I am a member and race for (but don't wear the colors yet) of Wakefield Tri Club - I haven't done much with them this year just used for the OW swimming but will be doing much more with them over the winter and next season.

    I'm looking to step up to half ironman next season, so will taylor my races around that. I know you dont neccessarily need to do lots of shorter races - but they are so much fun i want to anyway. I'll probably stick to local ones though - South Cerney and Cotswold are two I will do again. And then a short pool based one in May. I don't know which 1/2 ironman i will do - but I have to admit to feeling the lure of the big brand...

    Have a 1/2 marathon this weekend, so will see how my long distance running legs are.

    My big problem is a 4 week jaunt to Australia over Christmas that's going to f%$k with my winter base training...

  • Cheers for that han382, chose Paddock Wood cos its flat and it'll be my first half-did the Vigo multi terrain in September so a little off hills at the mo! My father in law tells me Canterbury half is pretty good too...

    Next year will be a bit special, as my sister wanted to do a "womens classic".
    That´s four races in four different categories (Crosscountry-skiing, cycling, swimming and running) spread around the year.
    Will be interesting! I havn´t tried skiing since my early teens - and that´s a long time ago...

    My plan:
    Feb : Vasaloppet W (30km crosscounrty skiing)
    Jun : Vaetternrundan W (100km cycling)
    Jul : Vansbro swim W (1000m swimming - upstreams)
    Kalmar Sprint
    Aug : Stockholm OD
    Karlskrona Sprint (Club event)
    Sep : Lidingö race W (10 km run)

    Some day I hope to do "the real thing", which means 90km skiing, 300km cycling, 3 km swimming and 30km running.

    My season for next year will look like this....

    April - Brighton Marathon
    National Middle Distance Championships
    June - European Long Course Championships
    July - World Long Course Championships
    August - Get Married
    September - Vitruvian

    In between all those races will be carefully planned sprints and standards to help me peak at the above Tri's, Not bothered where and how hard the other races are, they will be just prep work. Also I dont really care where I finish in this 'other' races either.

    Saying that I will be aiming for top 10 in every race with as many age group podiums as possible.

    Ideally the season will come together with a medal at the nationals, Euros or Worlds.

    Then once next season is over it is head down and prepare myself for the step upto IM distance in 2011 with the aim of qualifying for Kona:)
