    Welllllll, not yet.  I'm concentrating on getting ready for a Half Ironman and then later this fall trying to qualify for Boston so I kind of figured I wouldn't actually start training until the 1st of the year.  Now that doesn't mean I'm sitting on the couch eating BonBons, but I think I'm going to need some downtime in the late fall and early winter to prepare for the 6 to 7 months of training.  But as far as a honest to goodness plan, no I don't have one yet.  I have a few books that have plans in them but to be honest sometimes I just don't get them because of all their shortcut terms.  I sometimes don't like to read a book from cover to cover and I just jump to the "good" part, but I guess I'm going to have to spend some quality time reading one or both of them very soon.

    Do you have a plan that you're going to use?

    Cool! My husband finished his 2nd IM there this year. We drove out with the kids, 4,000+miles, and it was awesome.

     

     

    You can read his first segment of his race report here. http://ironmakeover.blogspot.com/2009/06/race-report-ironman-coeur-d-alene-june.html

     

     

    I hope to hear more about your training as the months go by. Best to you!
