Yeah, I have no advice on preparing for a Triathlon. Today is Friday and I am writing this as I sit here in my PJ’s, with a two year old, still in his Pj’s next to me; a one year old sleeping; a four year old (in his PJ’s) watching TV and a sick five year old on the couch. Not really where I wanted to be two days before my first Sprint Triathlon! But I’m here, hoping and praying I don’t get the terrible “ick” she has. And of course it’s one of those days when I ran out of CLorox Wipes, Bleach and hand sanitizer! We will have to survive!
I thought that since I can’t get in much of a workout, I’d practice my Transition set up! The Super Sprint I did in May I fumbled a bit in Transition. The biggest three problems were; 1) The damn wetsuit!! I should have started taking it down when I got out of the water!! 2) My cycling gloves! I fought to get them off instead of running and taking them off as I ran! 3) My sneakers! They were super hard to get into! This time around I’ve decided to go with Yankz ties! I am hoping these three things will help take my Transition time from 5 minutes to at least 3! LOL I’m more concerned with finishing, obviously…I figure I will learn along the way!
So be sure to check out facebook Sunday for where I am! My times will be posted! Hopefully my entire cheering squad will be there as well! 🙂
