..of work, that is.
Tomorrow morning, it's time to head down to Louisville for packet pick-up and a little practice swim in the Ohio. Beautiful!
Now, it's time to make the list. Ya know, the list of all the possible things i need to bring to make this a successful trip. It's insane the stuff I pack. Even in high school, I was the girl who would have *insert some random thing* when it couldn't be found in coach's bag. Included in my packing is always: a sharpie, spare roll of TP, tape, band-aids, camera, advil, extra socks, flip flops, food, gum, extra underwear (because there was this time i peed my pants at a CC race...and it wasn't on purpose), water bottles....you get the picture. I just want to be prepared.
Saturday is bike and gear bag check.
And then, Sunday... (gulp!)
I am feeling ready though. My emotions got all fired up yesterday over some fraudulent charges on a credit card...grrr...but it totally awakened my senses. My massage yesterday loosened my muscled just enough. No soreness and got through my bike feeling uber strong last night. And I'm still sleeping like a rock. For hours on end.
The greatest part of all this prep and taper the last week or so are the words of encouragement from other bloggers and athletes. You guys are amazing!!! Thank you all for your support.
