How is everybody's training going? So far things have been moving along with my training. I'm doing the Fink competitive plan but I have had to modify it to work around the kids after school activities. So I have been training 7 days a week. It seems to be ok now but I'm not sure how long I'll be able to continue with it. I'll just have to take it week by week. Here's to a good February, keep on keeping on

My 26 week plan had a weird start. I was in Haiti working at a hospital the week before. I wasn't able to do anything, so on day 1 I was a bit rusty. The swimming last week was a bit rough, and I started weights and was way to sore to run 2 days later, so I delayed my 3rd run of the week. This week I was on a mini vaca with my family, so I missed out Monday and Tuesday. I have a lot of time the next 5 days, so I'm planning on getting in 3 good runs, 3 swims and a couple of decent rides on the trainer.

Hope all is well for everyone else.

Just thought I'd give this thread a bump and see how everyone was doing.

I've been working hard on the bike and run over the last 7 weeks and getting ready for the official start of my plan in about 2 weeks. I'm on a light week at the moment, retesting on the bike and preparing for a HM this weekend.

I'm still trucking along with the Fink plan. Though I hit an inconvenience in that my treadmill at home broke so now I'm getting myself out to the Y to get my runs in. Other then that I think the only thing I'm not liking is that my weight is still too much. So I just need to control that a little better so I'm lugging around so many extra lbs.

Yeah its tough time of year. Weather/darkness makes it hard to get outside not to mention the time it takes to do the driveway, shovel the roof etc...sucky time of year in the north east for sure. Fear will kick in soon and you'll all be going at it double time lol.

On a side note I just signed up to volunteer...I got 1 of the speedpass slots so i dont have to sleep in line to register for 2015.

I used the speed pass to get into 2014 and I have to say it was nice to get through the line so quickly. I got there early but it didn't really matter the line just moved through with no problems. I think it was well worth it. You will have to let us know where you are going to be so we can look out for you.

My 20 week plan starts next Monday. I'm very excited to get under way. My running is already ahead of where it needs to be (nailed a 2 hour run this past weekend). I have a little bit of a unique situation with my training and my wife works every weekend and I work every other weekend. Going to be doing some long stuff during the week when I dont have to be into work until 12pm. Also, my entire month of May is shot for anything that is long in duration as I work every single day for the entire month, often 10+ hours per day. I can still get at least an hour of training in every day. Its just going to have to be what it will be. After May I plan to hit my training as hard as I can until IM Syracuse, which will be my dress rehearsal for LP. I plan to use that as a long training day and not really "race" that race. I cant believe we are almost 20 weeks away already!!!

Last time I did IMLP I went up with a group of BTers to do an impersonal camp and course recon- Anyone interested in trying to go this year. I'm leaning towards June 12 or 13- June 15, it's the same weekend that EN has their camp.

Hotels go pretty quick but if we can get a group we can prob reserve a block of rooms in one of the hotels.

I'll be up there that weekend with the EN group. Decided since this is my first I could use all the help and input available.

If there is a BT group up there at the same time it would be great to meet up with all of you.

I also am doing the 20 week plan. Like you I have a weird work schedule (12 hour shifts that leave me exhausted, plus some weekends). Had a conference in Boston this week for work that kind of threw my training schedule off but nothing too serious was lost. I'm also attending a tri training camp with Team Red White and Blue down in Austin in 2 weeks...the workouts will be lighter than what I have planned for training but I think what I'll learn in general will pay huge dividends.

Now, if the weather would just cooperate so I can get some outdoor riding...supposed to snow tomorrow. March is out like a lion, it seems.
