What is the deal with me being organised? I normally have stuff all over
the place and am always in a hurry hours out from an important race. Maybe
I'm just more efficient these days but if that also means being bored, I
don't want it!
Here I sit, 90 minutes before I have to get on the bus to the race and I
have everything packed, chain lubed, bike ready, bottles and food prepared
etc. So what do I do now? Write a blog post to keep myself busy.
I remember writing something in my last post about not being that nervous
and not having too many expectations. It was what I was thinking at the
time but now I think I was kidding myself. I woke up at 6am and couldn't
get back to sleep. I got up, went for a walk/jog with a couple of sprints,
got my stuff together and then had the haircut that I hadn't got around to.
Too much time, too much thinking.
You'd think that, after all the pressure situations I've been in I would be
much better at it. Perhaps my nerves today are a product of uncertainty.
I've worked hard to find out as much as I can but I don't really know how
this triathlon caper works at this level and there are few people to ask. I
just have to experience it. Today's race will hopefully give me that
experience that will help me build a more complete race at the World Champs
So here I am surfing the internet wasting time and hoping that the
afternoon will go well.
Wish me luck.
