Tapering, Carb-Loading, and Salt-Loading

Posted Oct 01 2008 8:56pm
Tomorrow is my first triathlon since moving to Boston, the Lowell Mill City Triathlon. I feel very ready for it. This week was a "taper" which means that I don't work out nearly as hard as I usually do, in order to get ready for the big event.

Also, it's HOT in New England this weekend!!! Thank goodness I got my workout for the day out of the way at 7 am today, when it was cooler out. In order to prepare for the heat, Mary says to eat lots of salt and drink plenty of water so that you "pee clear". I've done that over the past 2 days.

I'm ready!!!!
