Rest day.  Game plan is to give the bike a little TLC and change the tires and tubes then just chill the rest of the day.  A short brick tomorrow morning then it's all over but the nervousness.  The main focus for today and tomorrow is drinking lots of water and sleeping (and eating banana crisps of course).

Sitting here at my desk obsessing about Sunday, I think my nervousness has kind of subsided.  I definitely have some anxiety because I've never completed this distance, but I'm simply interested to see how my body handles racing for 6 hours.  I think at this point, I'm less interested in finishing in a certain amount of time and more interested to see just how far my training has brought me and how I handle it physically and mentally.  I'm most worried that I won't enjoy racing this distance than I am about what my time will be.  Sounds weird, I know.  I've had such a great summer and have really enjoyed the training - I want race day to be just as fullfilling.

Short, but intense swim. Hadn't planned on the negative split, but the first three just happened to each get faster so I figured I'd try for all six.

I'm sensing peer pressure to make my Dman goals public information.
