Old 1 out and back.

Drizzly day. I didn't want to take my newly cleaned and tuned tri bike out so I used the road bike today. I also put on my front light in addition to the blinky.

Run through downtown after the bike ride. Due to the shorter/taper bike, I went through town earlier than usual and encountered more traffic that I would have liked.

It was drizzling when I began and the rain held off until the last five minutes or so of the run. After I got inside, it really started to come down. Good timing!

Brick tonight, hopefully outdoors! done!

I had a nice talk with Coach today.  We went over race day plans and she talked about visualizing parts of the race.  I'm getting nervous/excited!

Your smile is your best accessory.

Olive Chapel to Apex BBQ an back.

I was happy with the pace. Felt good. Great weather again today -- 54 when I started, 65 when I finished and a light breeze.

I wore the blue shoes today. Same problem with soreness on the outside of the right foot after about 9-10 miles. Today it was a 8.

The tireds have set in. In many ways it was a good ride. Nice weather, felt good on the bike, heart rate back to normal. Speed, however, was not normal. I told myself, "Trust the plan."

This was on my road bike again. When I made the appointment to have the tri bike tuned up, it was just for that. Afterwards, Kevin crashed ins mountain bike -- probably needs new cables and/or lots of adjustments as shifting was problematic post-crash -- and brought it on at the same time. I blame the mountain bike for the delay. Now that I am reacquainted with my road bike, I am enjoying it!

warm up, 3x800 @ 40 (no cool down today. needed to pee so got out of the water asap!)

21:12, 21:07, 21:36

I looked at my race report for the Gator Half and I averaged about 290 calories per hour on the bike.  6 bars + something in T1 should about do it for B2B.

Hey!  Who put this workout on into my training plan?  I thought Fridays were Rest Days and this was Taper!  Wink

I think that I've settled on my B2B wardrobe

Swim:  Desoto Forza shorts and a sports bra under my sleeveless wetsuit.  The current water temperature at Johnny Mercer Pier near the B2B swim course is 73.6.
swim gear

Bike:  New shorts and a top.  Socks and arm warmers.  Desoto 400 mile shorts with sports bra from swim, CBC short sleeve cycling jersey, arm warmers, fingerless cycling gloves and SmartWool socks.  Possibly toe covers on shoes and zip lock "vest" under the jersey depending on morning temperatures.  Helmet and sunglasses of course.

By going with the cycling jersey with awesome pockets, I can carry all of my nutrition making Special Needs an option rather than a need. 
bike gear

Run:  New top and socks.  Change to CBC tri top, change to Balega socks, running hat and sunglasses for lap 1.  At run Special Needs, add long sleeved performance tee added and remove sunglasses
run gear

I hope that's not too much cloths changing!  I want to keep it simple but I fear that stopping at Bike SN will be a huge time sink and think that I may be better off adding time to the transitions.
