Ironman Louisville

Postby killie » Sun Dec 12, 2010 7:53 pm

I've signed up for my first IM in Louisville in August of 2011. Is anyone else doing it? I've been training on my own but I'd like to have some company/motivation out there.

Thanks.

I'm planning to go, but as part of the Sports Massage Team.

I'm getting back into tri training this season, but only sprints & Oly's so I probably won't be much help there.

Let me know if you have any questions about IM-L'ville. I've been there the last 4 years, plus several club members have raced there the few years too.

I have raced it twice, shoot me an email if you have any questions. Also, Heather Gollnick has put together a 7 part preview of the race that you can find on you tube.

Glen,
What's the best approach for dealing with the heat? Did you train in the hot Oklahoma summer sun?
thanks.

when I trained for Kona I would wait for the hottest time of the day to train both years
and it must have worked because I never felt really hot tired yes but not overly hot

I did 2 workouts per day and I made sure one was during the hottest part of the day. The temps here were in the 100s during August, so the mid 90s did not seem bad when I got to Louisville. On my long days on the weekends I would do a long brick and not start until noon, that way I would get in about 6 hours during the heat of the day. I also did something that might seem extreme, I quit using my air conditioner in my vehicles and at home. I wanted my body to get accustomed to being hot all the time. I saw a lot of people from northern states dropping like flies from the heat when I was there.
