Chicago Accenture International Distance Triathlon Bib # 6235 

Recovery day.  And only two more wake up's till the big race.

Nothing fancy to talk about today.  Probably cause I'm in Taper Hell.  Never thought it would happen to me, but this week has been all kinds of funky. 

Reduced volume has made me feel weird.  I've been doing stupid stuff all week (like forgetting my watch both times I went to the pool this week so I had to borrow the wifey's watch).  Just over all stupid stuff like that, and flying off the handle at a stupid post (Sorry Ryan) that was meant to be a joke.  I guess it is a good thing I'm getting it out of the way now, and not on Sunday.

So I'm bumping up to Oly distance.  Two goals are to finish and to do it under 3:00.  I'm really not racing it, like I would a Sprint, because it is my first at this distance and I don't know exactly what to expect.  I know my body can take it.  That's not what I'm worried about.  I've been going over the mental part of it all week.  AND the nutrition part of it.  THAT is new for me.

Nutrition in a race is a new concept.  At least to the level that one has to keep in mind for an Oly race.  Sprint, meh, eat some breakfast, maybe pop a GU before the start, and if you really feel like it, one on the bike.  And just stay hydrated and hold on for dear life.  Oly is different.  Exertion time is double.  So it will be breakfast early, a GU about 10-15 before the start of the swim, a GU early in the bike, and possibly at the end, and then rely on the hydration stations on the run. 

Oh, and this 10k will be a PR cause I've never raced a 10k ever!  Heh.  Yeah.  This is gonna be fun. 

I'm really not that nervous.  I doubt I will do this distance again.  I just like the Sprints.  I love pouring everything into 60-75 minutes of hell.  Red lining the HR.  Pushing my body to the limit over that short time frame.  It fits me.  At lest I think it does.

So, as you can see, even this post is (taper madness) rambling.  Heh.  Well, be thinking of me on Sunday morning as I participate in the Worlds Largest Triathlon, the Chicago Accenture Olympic Distance Triathlon.

Have a great weekend folks.
