<p>So as you all probably know, my plans for IMLP 2010 didn't exactly go wonderfully.   My hips and legs are recovering slowly but surely thanks to cortisone injections, PT, and me showing some self-control for a change.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Since by the time I am hopefully allowed to bike and run again ("early fall, IF you are good and things go as I expect") I will have gone pretty much an entire year without any sort of regular training, I'm not going to even attempt to throw myself back into the fray too quickly.  I'd like to invite all of you to join in for some or all of my 3 year plan, which hopefully will finish with IM CdA in 2013.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Assuming I can have a 2011 season, I plan on filling it with base building, sprints, and an oly or two.  Then I plan on working pretty darn hard over the winter for an early (June?) season HIM...  and provided that training goes well, IM CdA 2013.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So why am I going on about this?  It occured to me that there might be some number of others out there who may be planning on an IM in a couple years, either their first or their 30th or somewhere in between, and that this might be a very good chance for a major Team LIT meetup (whether racing or not).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Who's in?  Who's considering, but will not formally commit?  Who has no intention of ever doing that crazy ironman thing, but thinks that a vacation to lovely Couer d'Alene, Idaho might be just the thing in June 2013?</p>

<p>I have much less than that to get off my lazy ass and full out train for something.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I *did* start a CdA savings account.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" style="width:33px;height:35px;" title=""></p>

<p>If I can get healthy myself and pull off a HIM next year I would love to.  Ssshhhh, just don't tell my husband yet.  Shit, in 2013 I'll be turning 50! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title="">  OK, I'm in if I'm not dead!</p>

<p>Wow!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Talk about planning ahead.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'd like to do it, I think...maybe....I don't know...yeah, I'd like to consider it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm "askeered" of the hills, though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But, between now and then, you'd think I'd have time to find some mtns to train on, right?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've got a major Canada vacay to plan and execute with my mom during the summer of 2012, so that will be my big thing for that summer. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>2011 Summer:  don't know yet.</p>
<p>2012 Summer: CAN Vacay</p>
<p>2013 Summer:  IMCdA.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sounds like a great tentative plan.</p>

You're as old as you act!  In my case that ranges from 2-85.<br>

Well....let's just say that convincing my family to do another one is likely NOT going to happen.</p>
<p>So, having a LIT team being represented sounds like a GREAT idea.</p>
<p>But, it's still so far away, I can't be sure that I'll have the $$ or the training.</p>
<p>But, for now.....yeah, let's plan on it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Although, I sorta thought IMAZ would be my 2nd (I have a different side of the family that lives there).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Put me in the "considering but tentative" column.<img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>

I actually wanted to do CdA as my first, but that got changed to LP since it is relatively local.   We've taken a few trips to Lake Placid, and while I love it there, I want to go somewhere different (especially as it's reasonably likely that I'll continue to go to IMLP to volunteer sometimes.)<br>

<p>I'm still looking towards Arizona or Canada somewhere after 2012.  CdA is too early in the season and I'd be spending much of my training time indoors.  Not something I'd be highly motivated to do- at least not right now.   </p>

Yeah, the local factor is HUGE for me.  I really think I need to stick to an IM I can drive to...makes it easier on the family.  I suppose Wisconsin is always a possibility as well but I really love the LP area too.<br>

The fact that it's early in the season does kinda make me nervous but I was there in 2008 for DH's ironman and it is a great area and venue.  It would be awesome to be able to experience the whole course.  Think of it this way the whole summer would be IM training free! </p>
