So that's pretty much it, I know that I'm going to rip the race of my life if I just stick with what I've been doing over the last few months and just execute come race day. It's going to be a good day and I already have friends apparently betting on my finishing time. (Seriously they have a pool with a $5 buy in set up...ridiculous) I've got some lofty goals, but as my good buddy Tim (who has been incredibly ABSENT from blog comments lately.....ahem.....) replied in an email yesterday, "I think Earley is going to uncork one this year....Solid bike followed by a smokin' fast marathon"
But until then, the name of the game is #1 SLEEP, #2 rest, #3 get everything situated and organized, and #4 EXECUTE on race day. My big nemesis has been sleep lately because of the Tour de France being on later at night, but I'm going to start recording them so I can just watch whenever. So here's the decree and competition; See who can sleep the most from now until race day. Since there's only 9 more wakeups until race day and average people get 8 hours a night, that works out to 72 hours of sleep from now until race day. I'm going to try and make a goal of ~80 hours of sleep over the next 9 nights and I'll check back and see how I do. Until then friends, limit the food intake, wait for taper to take effect, rest and get some good sleep, cheers!
