It is almost time to race. We are heading out of here tomorrow around noon. We have to drop the dogs off at the vet around 11AM and then we can come home and pack the car.
I was back and forth about using the wetsuit. I decided to walk over to the neighborhood pool and test it out. I had bought it at the beginning of this season, but only swam in it for the first ows of the seasob. I tried it out and it fit will. I practiced getting in and out of it.My only slight concern is that the zipper might unzip slightly.
I practiced flying mounts and dismounts. I have decided I will put my cycling shoes on in T1, but will take my feet out of my shoes in T2. No flying mounting of the bike. When trying to run and mount it, i didnt get on fast enough and stubbed my toe. I will probably still fly off the bike as I have done that previously with shoes on.
While at work today, I wrote out my specific nutrition plan based on training. I am feeling pretty good about it. I just hope I can get more down during the run.
I am really looking forward to the race. I will be wearing a couple of "lucky" items on the run. I am going to wear my new socks I won through the Endurance Sports Bar and my new headsweat visor I just got in the mail today from the Quadrathlon weight loss challenge. I am hoping the luck I had in winning both those items will rub off on my run.
I cant wait to see all my fellow blogger peeps out there racing hard.
As Java Mom says " IT'S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG!!" SO BRING IT ON
