That sounds brutal .... congratulations on completing an IM.  That is true dedication.  I travel so much with my job I'm not sure I could find enough time to train for one.  I'm building to an OLY later this year and that is hard enough.

You are inspirational for sure.

Figured I'd throw my hat in here- Cozumel four months ago weighing in around 225 at 6'0".  Would have lost weight, but need to stay competitive for my weight class (powerlifting, 220).  Less weight certainly would have helped, but where's the fun in that?

Both my IM's have been under 11hrs and I was 210 and 215 for the races.  During training I was shooting to be close to 200, but both time I just wanted to get it over with because my support at home was shrinking-FAST.  My advice is to make sure you have support, form a plan and be ready to change it up as life dictates.  I tried to do to much at one time so I am now burned out of triathlons.  So now I am trying to qualify for that silly running race in Boston held every year (I can do most of my running when it does not interfer with my support Wink)

 

 

I qualified for that silly race yesterday with a 3:08:xx and i was at 218 pounds before I left for the race. Not trying to brag, but for some reason I remembered this post during the last 10k of my race. I was trying to drum up motivation as I was lapping the half marathoners and it would have been easy to walk as no one would have cared. Now, I concentrate on swimming as I want to kona qualify in the next few years.

Awesome!  congratulations.  I think the only way I will ever qualify for Boston is if I'm still running at 80   (I probably have it in me athletics wise, but don't want to dedicate the time to running that much a week - I like triathlon it suits my ADD).
