It is Thursday morning, two days before my first olympic triathlon, and i’m PSYCHED.
I have had trouble focusing on anything else but the race this week, and I’ll be busy packing and double and triple checking my bags tonight before heading up north tomorrow morning.
I made rough predictions on my times for each leg, but I’m not going to be too worried if I don’t make ’em. I’m more focused on just finishing and having fun since this is my first Oly and I’m not quite sure what to expect. (times include transition)
.9 mile swim: 32:00
27.25 mile bike: 1:35:00
6.2 mile run: 52:00
So, if I make it across that line in less than three hours, I’ll be REALLY proud of myself, but if not, oh well. I think 3 hours is a pretty big reach given some of the times that I’ve been putting out lately.
See you kids this weekend! Be sure to say hi if you spot me and I’ll be looking out for all 10 of you SBR TV viewers out there to cheer you on!
