First off, thanks to my husband for the words of encouragement. You are the best. What he didn't share is that last night I had a little emotional breakdown about this upcoming race. Which was all started because of my bike seat and the position I was sitting on it. Anyway, thanks honey.
Now to steal his format for this blog post.
Show up. I will do this by talking myself out of talking myself out of doing the race. I have two days to do this. I have no idea what my race pace will be, as I have never done a sprint tri before.
My targets for the race as followed:
Not drown. I am hoping my wetsuit will help in achieving this goal. I can only assume that my time will be twice that of the time it takes me to swim(500m) in the pool, as I will probably be zigzagging all over the place.
Not fall in front of everyone while clipped in.
Go as fast as I can to make up time lost on swim and bike. And rehydrate since I can't drink on the bike.
With transitions I hope to be finished before they close the course.
Thanks for all the well wishes. And an unnecessary good luck to Jeff. I know you will rock this training day!
