Where did the time go!?! Just yesterday I felt like I had plenty of time left before the race and now I’m starting to think about tapering and final race prep!
October’s focus switched from base-building to more concerted efforts around cycling and brick work (bike into runs). By the final week I finally brought myself to install the aero bars and start to put my head down on dedicated trainer time in TT position.
Here’s how it looked by the numbers:
|18,100 yards (+2,050 yards MoM)||225.4 miles (+18.4 miles MoM)||82 miles (-8.7 miles MoM)(||140 minutes (-25 minutes MoM)||31 hours 48 minutes (-1 hour MoM)|
As I head into this final stretch of training, I’m trying to fine-tune the small stuff:
- Nutrition (see current plan)
- Transition (Practicing mount and dismount this weekend!)
- Wetsuit (I’m sad to admit, I’ve actually not worn it yet, so there’s a bit to be done here)
- Course familiarization
Anything else I should be thinking about?
