Good luck to those doing the Houston marathon this weekend!

I'm doing Cozumel: half Aramco Houston marathon on Sunday, then full speed ahead training for Texas 70.3.

@Catherine, I am not doing the race, but now is a great time to swim or work on your weakest sport , P90X and weight training. Coz is a long way out. You could also do a June or 26 week out HIM. Then come back down to start your IM training. This far out I would recommend having a plan for each week to help keep you motivated!

Anybody doing Cozumel November 2012?? What are you doing for a training right now?

@ Brent: thanks for that recap!  Congratulations on a great race, and thanks for including the details on what went right and wrong, and how you got through it!

Hey everyone, I thought I would post my race report from my first IM back in 2010. I hope it gives you some motivation heading into 2012.


Also if you have any interest in coaching check out my site.

@jesse- doing it again this year. Last year water was 72. Swim was cancelled due to 30 mph winds though. I swam the course the day before and the water was perfect rough as hell, but temp was great

Happy new year to you all!  I posted a while ago asking for opinions/experiences with Vineman Full.  Your comments were helpful -- and I registered!  My husband and I will both be racing in it this year -- the first 140.6 for both of us. 

I'm wondering if anyone out there can recommend a good full distance training plan.  I've looked at a few but would love thoughts form this group.
