It’s getting real now! Count down in hours, no more days.

I spent the bulk of taper week doing little more than rest, stretching, massages, and recovery. I finally got out today for an easy pace work out. Right calf feels normal now. It was a hot midday work out. 87 at high noon. Today was short and sweet. I set up a reverse brick workout. Easy 2 mile @ long run pace with 6 sets of strides (30 steps each.) Jump on the bike, covering 5 miles on a flat loop, keeping cadence above 92.

Done, no pains, no twinges, all parts working as they should. Green light for Sunday. Better news is that I was just itching to do a work out, and very tempted to go longer and faster. Wise enough to leave that to Sunday’s business. Tomorrow, I’ll head up to the expo, take care of admin stuff. Easy swim with new wet suit in the morning. Go through all the equipment, checklist, nutrition supplies,and plan out the meals leading to race morning.
