Saturday: Swimming first. Lots of technique stuff, which sounds easy enough but is actually hard because there’s a lot of one arm shit and smashing of the core. So wasn’t optimal start before I ran a half marathon. First 15 or so kms was ok as I kept a sensible pace but the last part. That hurt. A lot. But I guess that’s good training for the world of pain I’ll be in when I get into uncharted territory during the big gig. Still, the thought of doing that twice makes me rather ill.
Had some of those gels before and during run. Not bad but lime flavour was pretty disgusting. Will have to test these out a bit more. It certainly will help to have a bit of a power boost at strategic points of the run.
Was actually quite sensible with the eating afterwards. Still ate heaps but spread it out. How good are hash browns!
