This morning I spent some time looking up lists of what gear I need to pack. I also looked over some tips of how to lay out your transition area. While doing this I started to remember how my first triathlon went by in a flurry. I tried to think of all the things that went well and all of the things that I would have liked to have done differently. Hopefully this exercise of the brain will prove productive. I know for sure this time I will not go for speed over comfort in foregoing socks. BIG MISTAKE.. from the first race. I had horrible blisters afterwards. I was just in such a mad rush the first race trying to get to the next part of the race I think my brain shut down. The only problem with all of this thinking and planning is that I am getting more nervous by the second. Things racing through my brain right now: “When will I find time to put on my new cushy gel seat cover for my bike since I wont see my bike till right before the race?” “Is the time I entered for the swim too slow or too fast?’ “Will I be able to handle jogging/walking outside on the pavement?’ “Will I finish last?” “Did I put in enough hard work and effort into training for this event?”
If you read my blog take a second to post me a comment today! I need it… You know words of encouragement, tips, reasons why I am crazy for doing this, whatever you want. I want to hear from whoever reads this thing.
