IMFL photos

Blogger is acting stupid again today. I wanted to follow Shawn's example and put up a couple old photos from Ironman Florida. It seems like years ago, and it hasn't even been one whole month yet. Here's me, about 3 hours before I was looking much, much worse:

And our whole fabulous crew! Top row L-R Dianne, Kathy, Me, Shawn; couch potatoes (JUST KIDDING!) L-R Linae, Ellie, and Dawn.

In totally unrelated training news, I'm looking over this 3-days-per-week running plan from Runner's World for marathon training. That looks like a manageable plan, even in the midst of triathlon training while I'm trying to do some cycling and swimming too, as long as there's enough daylight to get in two weekday runs! Right now I can't do more than about one hour after school before it gets pitch black, which only gets me about five miles on a good day. Less on a lazy day. But I could do most of the plan up until the 6th week. Hmmmm. 21 days until the winter solstice, then things start turning around again.

I did that plan for my last marathon but I started 1/2 way through. They key to success is upping your pace for every run compared to your normal. No LSD - just fast runs and then faster interval training. Doable but tough. The good news is that if you really do it you will get faster.

You look great Nancy. Seems to me like you should update your other "profile" photo since you look so different now.
I would say ...younger, hipper, and thinner too.

I was coming in to echo triathlonmom. You look great! What a difference from your 2005 bike photo to your 2006.

Great pic!! I've been doing the FIRST plan, where you run 3 days and cross train 2 or 3 days a week, and I love it!
