One week to go! And I am ready too! I have really been on an unscheduled two week taper. My plan only called for a 1 week taper, but once again, life dictates racing. I have had a really good mileage month in August. So that has really helped with my confidence. My August totals were:
Swim: 7,987 yards (pool was closed for 2 weeks)
Bike: 262 miles
Run: 65 miles
The reason I decided to go for a two week taper vs a one week taper were pretty simple. I was tired and I wanted to rest up. Plus I was out of town some this week, which meant I got in bed earlier. I have been trying to be in bed before 10PM, and not having to get up at pre 5AM has been nice. Plus, I have been feeling really good. A lot of the little aches and pains that you get when training have slowly disappeared this week.
I am getting ansy and have a feeling it is going to be a long week. I am off Mon due to Labor Day, Tuesday is an all day meeting, Wed is office work, then I am off work Thursday through next Tuesday. (My birthday is Friday). I know my what my workouts will be this week and I have a massage scheduled for next Monday. So all I have to do is swim/bike/run! Can't Wait!
