First off, Merry Christmas to all! I would like to thank all of the Endurance Madness team and friends for a spectacular year in 2017 and congrats once again to everyone who accomplished a personal best. I have a Christmas special good through the end of the year that expires January 1st 2018. So, this is a long post and anyone interested in building a rewarding racing year in 2018 should read to the end. I have taken a lot of time and effort to write an extensive, detailed training program for 2018. I plan on performing my personal best at 5k, 10k, half marathon, Rec Plex Tri, New Town Tri, Olympic Tri, and possibly 70.3 Tri; are you with me? If you are interested in the race schedule for 2018 and have the desire to be better than you were yesterday, then you might want to join the movement to a personal best.

I will post a generic schedule of weekly training as always, but if you want the details of the training it will be a $20 a month charge, regularly $40 a month. Remember, there is training and then there is training with a purpose towards a goal. I will customize it to your race schedule for $40 a month, regularly $80 a month after the 1st. I also offer one on one training for $25 an hour or $15 for a half hour. As always, I will give the details to each work out / training day to anyone who attends at least 50% of TBH classes or once a week. The following are examples of a generic weekly post and a specific weekly post.
