My packing hasn't progressed since last night (ie it's still in piles on the floor), and I've resorted to making some blackcurrant jam this morning to distract me a bit ;o)
Shall be heading off to London Docklands later today to get into my hotel, bike needs to be racked today too. Would you believe there will be over 12,000 people competing over the weekend (here's the article claiming that)... Super-sprints, sprints and relays today then Olympic races tomorrow. WOW! That's a lot of triathletes - I smell an opportunity for retail therapy at the expo ;o)
Here are my race priorities;
- To finish
- To enjoy it
- Stay injury free
- Survive the swim
- Try and achieve something like this for splits;
- Swim <35mins
- T1 <4mins (long because you need to get out of the wetsuit dockside then go up steps into the mammoth expo centre and find your bike... apparently it's a nightmare!)
- Bike <1hr30mins
- T2 <2min30sec
- Run <1hr>
OK - it's 10:25 and I really had better start getting my kit together :O) Expect to right an "I survived blog" some point Sunday evening/ Monday morning with full race report later.
Happy racing for all that are this weekend, happy training for those who are not... and if you're not doing either then well just have FUN!
