Less than a week until the tri!
And there are now 170 people registered. (I found out that they are spacing swimmers at 30 second intervals, so that is a pretty big head start those fast people get!)
And the weather forecast is 55/70, so I think I won't have to worry about it being too cold to bike/run while wet.
So this totally changes the dress code.
Last weekend, Kori and I did another run through - I changed out of my bathing suit and into my bike shorts (there is locker room access at the tri).
The good part was that I was nice and comfy and dry for the bike.
The bad part was that T1 took me just as long as the swim portion did - almost 8 minutes! Gees, putting on bike shorts on while wet is not easy.
So being able to skip all that and just go with the tri shorts will be good.
Soooo, I should probably swim in my tri shorts once to make sure it works out okay.
And maybe I should do something during the taper, right? I haven't done anything resembling exercise since Monday! I blame that on having a friend in town. Who accidentally brought two left sneakers. And who has now heard my inner dialogue about tri shorts vs. a bathing suit for this race about ten kajillion times. I think he might possibly be ready to kill me.
