This time next week I will be finishing my last supper, cramming carbs, quaffing liquid to top up hydration and looking for my bed for a good nights sleep.
My bike & bags will be racked – hopefully on my own peg 562 unlike Lakesman where I placed them carefully on a random peg !
My race day kit will be laid out, Garmin charged, street clothes, goggles, swim hat, wetsuit ready.
In the final count down I can’t gain fitness, I won’t lose fitness, simply need to get some quality sleep & good food.
Work trips in London and finalising a tender will keep me focused on other matters than ironman.
Holiday booked – out of office will be on from Thursday then I will be in Tenby Friday for registration, briefing, explore expo and meet up with fellow athletes.
2018 ironman Wales is a sellout ! Plenty of like minded nutters who like a challenge- taking on the dragon 🐉 The roughest & toughest European race.
So racer 562 is really for action. Need to keep taper madness at bay, like moving seats on the train to work three times as someone next to or behind me coughs, sneezes or sniffs !
Next blog post will hopefully include some red carpet, hero hour action shots and race review for 140.6 miles.
Wish me mechanical luck as I’ll be flirting with the cut offs on the bike.
See you on the other side of ironman Wales 🏴
