Here's an interesting site I heard about on IM Talk:
It says I'm an over-glider. Reading the description, it could be correct. Interesting site.
Still working on the spectator guide. I finally found the website for the Q-sheet I use so I can create my guide. It's pretty cool. It's a spreadsheet someone created where you punch in your predicted time and it puts the time you should be in certain places on a map. I ordered it last night and I'm still waiting for them to e-mail it to me. It should show up today. They're pretty quick about that.
I did my last real workout last night. My legs have been very sore and sluggish all week. I've been getting worried. No more. They're coming around quickly. They're not 100% yet, but I kept putting out too much power on the bike and having to hold back which is a really good sign.
The weather is looking pretty good, except it looks like it might be windy. One site had wind gusts of up to 34 mph. Wind could actually work to my advantage because I put a lot of time into aerodynamics, but I'd rather not deal with it.
I picked up my packet yesterday so I'm all set to go. It's all about race day now.
As is typical of me I'm already looking past the race and planning next season. After the race, I'm going to do two things I've never done - a run focus, and cross country races. I discovered that college cross country races have an open class so I'm putting together a short cross country season. I never ran cross country and it sounds like a lot of fun so I'm really looking forward to that. Plus, I've never focused on running. Since getting into triathlon I've always focused on improving my bike or swim and running has always been on the back burner so I really want to work on that and see if I can improve my running. It will be a fun change of pace if nothing else.
And, I just discovered a race in Indiana in December I'm tempted to do. The Huff 50K, a 33 mile trail run. Could be interesting. Last year they ran in a few inches of snow.
