Hmmm taper...weeeeelllllllll. Was going to run with the boys tonight in a fun run but decided to jog the 5k instead, got to half way and was in a good position so pushed hard to take 5th lady and 1st V40. Not exactly a relaxing jog!
Hubby and eldest coming for whole weekend, Dad coming for the day to support.
How is your holibob so far BP? The weather is fantastic but hoppefully not too hot for your kids.
Stupidly narrow start at the runs tonight. All kids were trying to sprint off in their race and one poor girl fell and got trampled, then i guess because of the heat there were several spewing after..... Not exactly the best experience.
So looking forward to seeing some of you next weekend! No camping for me as I managed to find a wee log cabin close by - probably a good thing as I would be sorely tempted to join in in festivities and then be wading into the start all bleary eyed.... Hang on... I'll prob be bleary eyed anyway at 5:30!
Fun run with my kids tonight and not even tempted to race the 5k also on offer. I have taperitis.
I will apologise in advance to those marshalling to the end...... I am going to be delighted with anything under 15 hours. Hubby marshalling the start of the bike so please do not share any stories which will either make him want to do an IM himself OR make him feel hard done by having to support.
Did a turbo session in my pirate monaco.... if i smother myself in goose fat to wriggle into it then it is actually ok. Used the session to get down on tri bars, practice drinking from torpedo bottle and then take bottle (off the table next to me) to refill it.
Now i just need to practice (learn) how to do a tyre change and i am READY!!
Do we need number on back for bike and front for run as per usual tri's because i want to carry food in my back pocket and not sure if number belt would obstruct?
