Well, only four days to go before the 70.3M World Championships and the taper has begun in earnest....in terms of exercising anyway! (Work wise it is a different story). Yesterday was an inadvertent day off due to working late into the evening and having to run some urgent errants relating to our never-ending immigration process.
On todays schedule is a nice gentle swim with a few intense lengths to get the body ready for race day. The bike box is packed and ready to go and then tomorrow at 8pm we fly down to Tampa.
We are staying in nearby North Redington Beach and will move into Clearwater Beach, the race site, on Friday night before heading back to North Redington Beach after the race for a week of sun and relaxation. Should be a good time and hopefully a great race to end the triathlon season.
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
