This is the part of the game where I check the weather every day.
And where I resign myself to the fact that no, I probably can’t do any magical workout combination in the next few days that’s going to make a big difference on race day.
Also where I start running through lists of things not to forget (HELMET! CYCLING GLOVES! WETSUIT!)
There’s also the risk of minor injuries that could end up being disastrous. Yesterday a pair of shoes I’ve had forever gave me a blister on my heel for some reason. So now it’s it’s the same flats I’ve been wearing all summer until race day.
And it’s very possible that the day’s going to go great! And it’s possible the day’s not going to go great. But there’s not much I can do at this point except wait for it to happen.
