Yearly Goal Update - Motivation Monday

This coming weekend I'm racing the Mountain Man Half-Iron Distance triathlon. I haven't been motivated to keep up with my training plan. It will be interesting to see how I do considering this and the race is in Flagstaff at a much higher elevation. I will write a full racing report when I get back and post pictures of Lake Mary and the Grand Canyon.

As I've been biking and running this weekend I've been thinking about how I will reach my 2015 mileage goals and after building spreadsheets and formulas I discovered a way to stay motivated. Charts, Pivot Tables, and entering miles each day.
This is the mileage I have to complete to reach my goal by month, week, day:

  month week day
Swim 9827 1404 169
Bike 918 131 16
Run 294 42 5

This will happen. 
Spreadsheets and Blog Posts will help me stay motivated and prepared for the rest of this year's racing:

Since it is Monday I thought I'd post this too:

Updated Race Calendar: 
August 16 Mountain Man triathlon
September 20 Tri Tempe Olympic distance triathlon
October 18 Tumacacori Century Ride
December 5 McDowell 50K

I'm still trying to figure out another marathon in a new state but haven't committed. 

Now it's time to run. It's a cloudy, rainy morning here in Tucson. Woo Hoo.
