This week was my final week of training. This was also my first official attempt at tapering. I focused on the things I needed to focus on: swimming, riding & running. I skipped Hell Class on both Tuesday & Thursday in an over abundance of caution & rested completely on Friday & Saturday. Here is how my week went.
60 minute short ride, including clipping in/out practice for race day transition
EN run: Rick's Market, 3.86 miles
30 minute lap swim
It feels weird to have worked out so little this week, & oddly, I lost weight. I'm now down 14 pounds. It feels good. And I bet it feels really good on race day. Speaking of race day, my race starts at 7:30am tomorrow. There is no cell service in the park, so don't expect a social media blitz until way after the race. I think I'm ready. I hope. All I have to do now is pack & hope it doesn't rain. It's a 30% chance of rain right now. Come on, weather!
What will I forget to pack?
Will I be able to get coffee in the morning?
What will I eat for breakfast?
How am I going to get my poops out?
OMG, the water is going to be so cold!
Will I get disqualified for forgetting how to clip out at the bike dismount?
Will I wreck trying to clip out & get run over?
Am I going to cramp?
Are these salt pills really going to work? And when do I take them?
OMG, it's going to take me 100 hours to run that 10K.
This race is going to take me so long!
1 day to race day!
