My first tri of the year is this Sunday. It's the Uvas tri ~ 3/4 mile swim, 16 mile bike, 5 mile run. I think part of the nervousness is because the swim is longer than any tri I've done to date. In fact, I think it's *almost* twice as long as any tri I've done. Great...I've freaked myself out even more.
Also, it's supposed to be quite toasty and while the 'official' start is 7:30, my wave doesn't go off until 8:05 (yeah, I'm in the old lady last group). So there's plenty of time after the swim for the bike and especially the run to be nice and warm. Important point to remember: hydrate!
Well, I guess I gotta start the season somewhere and Uvas is as good a place as any.
Quick summary of recent workouts:
- 70 min run on Saturday, nice easy pace (something new I'm trying out, I'll explain more later)
- 3hr 15min, 43 mile ride on Saturday with some killer hills (for me) including the infamous Uvas "Hill"
- Weights on Monday
- 3000 yd swim on Tuesday and a baby brick (spin 35 min, run 15 min)
