Hmm. Food for thought. I need to see how a sprint fits into my training around that time. I think it may be in one of my build cycles so a lot of quality workouts. If it is, then I'll have to pass in favor of some quality long work but I'll keep you posted. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Hey Econo - I looked at my training plan and am 90% sure I'm in for this race though I plan to train straight through it. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

OK, now I have a dilemma.<br>
I'd like to do one tune up sprint tri prior to Alcatraz.<br><br>
I can do Beaver Freezer in early April and meet Econo. It's in the middle of a build cycle so I'll be doing bike cruise intervals the day before, skipping a 7 mile Z2 run and ~3000 m Z2 swim to do the race and then biking 40-50 miles the day after. April is also a challenging month since we're traveling 2/4 weekends and I'm already shifting quality workouts around to compensate.<br><br>
Or I can hold off the tune up race to May (Hawthorne Farms Sprint in Hillsboro) and do one that takes place at the end of a rest week and will only be skipping a TT on the bike which I can replace with the race.<br><br>
I'm thinking that holding off the race until May is the smart thing to do (sorry Econo <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">). Any other thoughts?

Maybe Econo would be interested in a May sprint tri...<br><br>
That would make a pretty good tune-up race for me, too. First A-race is early June.

Well, hobey. I'm a competitive meet-up-er, and have met some 57 CR folks. I will do the same with KR...I will dominate the meet-ups! So your training (and mbannon's stupid JOB) is messing up my tally, GRRRR!<br><br>
Seriously, if you make a last minute decision to just hop into the sprint, say hi. <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_salut.gif">

Nope. Moses Lake. It's in Bum-Fuc$-Eastern Washington, but it's also the USAT Regional championship race. I figure that should be a good indicator of how I stack up against the fast-holes this year.

So.....come on up to Hillsboro on May 3rd. We'll race then have brunch back at the house afterwards. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><a href="http://www.hfac.com/HFACTri/Index.htm" target="_blank">http://www.hfac.com/HFACTri/Index.htm</a>

Hey hobey, I've got a marathon the next day in Bleugene, so Hillsboro's out. Moses lake is a possibility, though.<br><br>
I'm going to do Heart of the Valley on May 26.

Heart of the Valley is too close to Alcatraz. I'm sure we'll meet up sometime this summer anyway. We're likely in for Pacific Crest weekend.
