I have picked Monday February 28th as my official training start date.
The days are getting longer and occassionally a little warmer.
Besides I have spring fever so bad.
Who is up for the training?
that gives us 7 weeks to train for the 25 mile Salt Lake Marathon Bike Tour
which is on Saturday April 16th.
This is a bike tour and is not a timed race, but is still great fun and we are accepted and respected by most bikers.
This training start date will then give us 15 weeks to get ready for the Utah Valley Marathon
which is on Saturday June 11th.
The Utah Valley Marathon has an official Footbike division. This race is so fun and gives us the opportunity to join up with other kickers. This is also a timed event for those who want to get their names in the books for U.S. Footbiking records.
If anyone is interested in seeing the training schedules I have set up. I would be happy to send them to you if you email me. These worked really well for me when I was training for my first Marathon.
