OK, Who is in for 2016??? I decided to pull the trigger on this one. I have completed one Ironman in Florida back in 2013. This will be my first time in Mont Tremblant. I have heard great things about this race.

Great choice for your 2nd IM!!

I did it last year and loved every minute of the week. IMMT puts on a race like no other. Enjoy your time up there. Have you booked lodging yet?

Yes I booked lodging, It was getting scarce in the village. Luckily Les tour de voyageurs had a couple or rooms/suites left.
Really looking forward to it.

I am in, too!  This will be IM #4 for me, the first post child #2.  This will be my first time in Tremblant, but this one has been on my list for a few years, so I am very excited.  We are booked at Lodge de la Montagne.

I'm in too. It'll be my 2nd IMMT and third IM overall.

IMMT is a great venue and super location for a race. I'm booked in the Le Somet de Niege (spelling?).

Off season training just began...there's a long way to go for me to get back into IM shape, but the journey has started. One foot in front of the other, then repeat...

Look forward to seeing you there....

This will be my first IM (have done two 70.3)

Rather nervous about this one, have started to ease into training but going to follow a BT program.


Haven't booked hotels yet any suggestions?

thanks,

Its my first time racing in IMMT, from what I hear is that you should try to book something in the Village.

So close to pushing the register button....but so afraid of the hills!

I live in South Florida so training for hills would be going to Clermont for hill training and doing trainer drills specific for hills....agh....

Thoughts? I did Louisville IM before and did k.....I do train in strong winds! Lol

Hmmmmmm

C'mon, you know you want to! IMMT is such a fantastic venue for a race. The swim is great, fresh water lake - can't beat that. Bike, ok it has some hills, especially at the end of the loop on the Chemin Duplessis section, but for the most part, the hills are rollers. and the run is pretty flat - a large portion is on a old rail line that has been paved.

So, long story short, register, you won't regret it!!

We are staying at ERM - Hotel Ermitage du Lac. Hopefully, this is convenient and there will not be any changes like in Louisville this year. Looking forward to meeting everyone during race weekend.

i stayed at the Ermitage du Lac in 2014, very close to transition. Basically any place within the pedestrian village will work, great for anyone travelling with you, very easy for them to take a break back at the hotel during the day. Plus about 2 minutes walk back after the race!

The 2015 Spectator Guide has the best maps that show the hotels + transition, further away is uphill a bit, not sure if this link will work, if not check the IMMT site:

How is everyone's training coming? Have you started focused training yet?

I am in the second week working with my coach.  Still working out a few kinks, but I'm off to a good start.

I chose to start training a bit early, as I am coming from quite a deficit.  This is my first triathlon season since 2013, and I had a baby in the spring of 2014.  Although I ran a marathon in early December, I only did a very few rides, and had not been in the pool since Vineman in 2013. I am really enjoying getting back to both with consistency!

Iron distance racing depends on the three pillars of pacing, nutrition and mental outlook. Training these three areas can significantly improve your race.
