There is so much to think about:
- What to pack for the weekend?
- What will the weather be like on race day?
- How will I keep my gatorade cold?
- Where do I have to be? and at what time?
- Where am I going to eat my pre-race dinner? **That's a BIG question!**
- Am going to be able to sleep the night before the race?
- How long is it going to take me to finish?
- Am I going to be able to walk when I'm done?
- Am I going to be able to walk the next day?
One question was answered today. When will I start? 8:40 am!!!
I like my start time and the way the waves were set up for the half iron.
8:30 - the 30 - 39 yr old men start
8:35 - the young guys and older guys start
8:40 - 18 to 44 yr old women start **That's me!**
8:45 - the oldest men and Clydesdale men
8:50 - 45 and up women, Athena women, and all relays (men and women)
I'm so happy that none of the men start with us. :) At the GCT I was so worried about the guys, that I swam out of my way to avoid everyone.
I can now plan my finish time. I'd like to be done by 3:39 pm. :-)
So, two weeks to race day.
Last Weeks Workouts Aug 21 - 27
Sat - Bike 60.3 miles in 3:26:30
Sun - off (I was too tired to run!)
Mon - Run 4 miles
Tue - Swim 11 min. (I was alone at Headlands and it was wavy, so I cut it short!)
Wed - Run 4 miles
Thur - off (missed my brick because Dylan's bus was over an hour late!) Although I did walk at the ZOO with Tyler for a few hours!
Fri - Swim 2000 yds at the pool and Bike 16.35 miles while BOTH boys were at school
Oh, I bought some new running shoes this week. Walked in them at the zoo on Thurs and did my first run in them today. They are the SAME ones I already had, just the lastest model. They should be just right for race day after a few more runs. :)
