Day 1202: Taper

I don't know what an appropriate taper before a Sprint Triathlon consists of.  I'm pretty sure I went a bit too hard early on this week.  So, I decide to compensate by going easy yesterday and today.  Some of my friends are doing this tri with me, so I suggested that we go for a pre-race walk this morning.

It was so much fun.

I used to see my friends at the gym every day, but now Darling A's nap schedule conflicts and I work out early in the morning.  And I really miss seeing my friends!  So, the walk was great and it was a good chance to discuss different race details.

The rest of the day was spent getting ready and then we made the 2 1/2 hour drive to the town where the race is.

I've had butterflies in my stomach for two days now.  I'm excited and nervous and really looking forward to race time in the morning!
