The following equipment is nearing replacement:
Rest day today. I'm gonna make myself a pasta dish tonight and maybe have half a glass of vino to unwind. Otherwise, I'm just trying to focus on getting enough sleep and trying not to be too nervous for tomorrow. It's weird, no one I know will be with me at the start. It's kind of crummy, but I guess that's what I get for choosing a race that's sort of "out of the way" for everyone...
  • 14m 47s
  • 750.00 yards
  • 01m 58s /100 yards
  • 20m
  • 5.10 miles
  • 15.30 Mi/hr
  • Aqua Jogging
  • 15m

Decided to do an aqua jog after the swim instead of a run on dry legs aren't feeling too hot right now, so I want to take it easy and preserve them for the race.

  • 29m 47s
  • 8.10 miles
  • 16.32 Mi/hr

Solid effort on the bike, hills included. It actually felt really good, mostly I think because of the weather. The other part is it's a taper week and I'm feeling strong.

  • 30m
  • 3.10 miles
  • 09m 41s /Mi

Bike/run brick today.

  • 18m 24s
  • 1000.00 yards
  • 01m 50s /100 yards

2 x 500 swim, plus another 200 yards afterwards just kicking, to loosen up the legs...

  • 14m 39s
  • 750.00 yards
  • 01m 57s /100 yards

Slow continuous swim, nice 'n' easy this morning.

  • 20m

Also some upper body, also pretty light, some stretching, la-di-da.

Rest day today. May have overdone it on the run yesterday again, this time, the right leg (left arch is doing fine for once). Argh, I can't win. I've never gotten injuries from running before, I have no idea why I'm starting now. Anyway, my right calf, along the right side midway up, is really feeling uncomfortable. In fact, it hurts. I've been icing and taking ibuprophen, but I have very little patience for this kind of thing 6 days (!!) before my race. Tomorrow I swim 15 minutes. I'll continue icing today and maybe throw in an aqua jog to loosen up a little. This sucks.
