Getting my stuff together for tomorrow’s race and I nearly forgot about the ol’ blog. Yeah, that’s right, tomorrow is race day. Not, you know, the race. And that’s what I keep telling myself: that this is just a little tuneup, a workout, a chance to practice transitions, blah, blah. This is not about blowing it out. Actually, it’s just the run where I have to be careful. Swimming hard for 1500 meters won’t hurt me. Putting maximum effort into a flat 40K on the bike? That won’t damage me for CDA. It’s really just on the run where I have to avoid being stupid. You know what I think I’ll do? Wear my heart-rate monitor for the bike and run and on the run, I won't go over 85 percent max HR. There's a thought.
