Open for training partners in the DFW area for runs and long rides. 15-20mph bike rides and 9:30 min/mile long runs (10 through 22 miles) and 7:30 tempos. We'll have fun and train our butts off.Laughing

Sounds great Evil.  I'm definitely interested, but am I very far from you if I'm in Apache Junction? I've been sitting here trying to figure out what the DFW area is, and my mind is drawing a blank.

You may also wish to post this in the Texas forum - unless you think you may want only responses from us Arizona types visiting Texas in the summer!

Hello Group

I am scheduled to do IMAZ and already feel the pressure. I stayed at the finish until midnight this year and it was very motivating. I look forward to getting there with each of you. This will be my first Ironman. I have 5 kids and they along with my wife are very supportive but I worry about getting enough training time with everything else, but I'm guessing everyone else has the same concerns. Good Luck

Welcome and congratulations!

I think most of us with families and 9-5 careers will be waking up at 5AM to do most of our training.

Speak for yourself. I can't wake up early to save my life.

Running at midnight...on the other hand...is something I can do.


Is there anyone out there on here in the chicagoland area?? Maybe we need to do some type of introduction in here.

It's kind of funny to see next year's list of IMAZ folks already chatting it up.  You guys are the new IMAZ thread; where I was just recently. :-)  A new crowd, crushing their IMs!  It's going to be awesome.  It's a good race.

I actually work 4-10's Tuesday thru Friday from 10pm to 8am so I have to get pretty creative on my training time, but I think it is actually easier then 9-5ers because I can train when I get off work in the a.m. or go home and go to sleep and then train when I get up around 4pm. I switch back to sleeping at night on my weekends so I lose almost 1 day of sleep each week, so I have to watch when I am getting sick to get plenty of sleep. I already feel the little knot in my stomach when I think too much about IMAZ. I love that feeling it makes me feel alive, it's how I know I'm living...and not just getting by.

I'm having dreams about the race every night since I signed up to it. Also, I was at this year's race as a spectator so I got to envision the whole race in my mind. Every time I think about that cannon starting the swim leg my heart races up.

Good thing that we have a whole year to get ready for it, huh?

Best of lucks to all of you, I hope to see you at the race and shake your hands!!

Oh good gawd.

I had my first Ironman nightmare of things that can go wrong.

I thought this crap didn't start until the month of the race. It's going to be a really long year if this keeps up...

butting my nose in......

if you guys are freaking out now, it's gonna be a loooooong winter/spring/summer for y'all

My advice....  Relax, the next few months should be all about building up a decent base, have some fun, sleep in while you can, go mountain biking, etc.  Be careful of burnout, even a 24 week training plan gets very long after a while

Yup.  My problem is I'm signed up for the Oceanside Half in April.    Then will have to take off two of the nicest training months in Vegas before starting on the IMAZ plan when it really starts getting hot here.

It's snowing here in Oregon so it looks like everything will be indoors for the next week or so. I hate training indoors. Any ideas to beat the boredom. Movies, tv, etc while riding, running.

Ok...thanks to reading this thread I had my first Ironman dream last night.  I in the Ironman race but in a regular wheelchair propelling myself forward with ski polls trying to make a green light.  Nice.  The dreams will only get better from here!
