I’m getting ready for my triathlon tomorrow and I’m realizing that although I have a lot of stuff and quite a few ideas I don’t really have a plan.
I decided to try putting my Forerunning in a plastic bag and wearing it under my cap for the swim and I just practiced this tonight. One ripped silicone cap later I think I’ve got it – ‘think’ being the operative word. I hope I don’t destroy the thing.
I’ve got food – a PowerBar cut up into pieces, a bag of Clif Bloks and 2 packs of Accel Gel. I have water and Gatorade and a bottle of Accelerade for after (never tried it before and don’t want to try it on the course.
I’ve got my clothes and fortunately I checked weather.com and it looks like this year will be quite a bit cooler than last year. I’m taking my windbreaker but I hope that all works out – ‘hope’ being the operative word. I don’t own arm warmers although I think they would be a better choice. I just hope I don’t burn up in the jacket because it is too short a ride to stop and take it off. Also, I have to figure out if I can load up the jacket pockets or if I load up the riding shirt.
See? I wish I had a plan… but I don’t.
If you are on the East coast and reading this in the AM be thinking good thoughts for me.
