Taper time...

Get some sleep. Don't train too much. Stay focused on race day. Got all your stuff? Where's your checklist? Bike ready? Why am I so jittery? Salt tablets or no? What are my goals? What's the weather going to be like? Last year was a record high. Just relax, and race!

All loaded up..

This is it.. Tomorrow is my pre-race checkup. I've got the car all loaded and I head to Racine to do one final long bike / run. And this time it's on the course. I had planned this much earlier in the year, but life is life. And racin' is racin'. Anywho, I'm hoping this goes off well so I can sit back on race day and soak up the "au jus" that is competition. After tomorrow, it's a few decent swims (hopefully), and slowly backing down to taper.. Last week I managed 11:36 in training time. That is not much for many, but I'm certain it's my all time long week. So, what's written is written and now the waiting begins.

See you in the papers.
