Oh I thought this was going to be your 2nd LP
Well, if I happen to have registered, then yes, that's correct, it would be my 2nd. I'll answer the questions just for fun.1. Is this your first IM?
Nope! If I race, it will be my 2nd!2. Have you done LP before?
Yep, 2009. And I blew my expectations out of the water. Most fun I have ever had in this sport.3. What are your goals for the 2010 race?
If I were to do LP 2010, my goals would probably be the same. Finish & finish happy! 4. Do you have any specific questions that you wish addressed about LP (the race, training etc)
Nope! But I have advice for the first timers. Get a plan or a coach that is a good match for you and do the work. The small workouts are NOT filler workouts. They matter. Don't cut corners or sell yourself short on your training. IM is the total sum of all your fitness, that means everything counts. Get a solid race plan and then stick to the plan...and you will have the race of your life.
I would love to get up to train once this fall. Then probably twice in the spring. I am planning to go to JorgeM's training camp in LP June 17-20.
But of course, that is just b/c I love training in LP and love training with Jorge...not necessarily b/c I'm racing....
