I'm not used to these rest days as part of my taper, I don't know what to do with myself. I find myself watching TV, napping and snacking all night. I guess the snacking isn't too bad as a part of my carb loading, but I should have drawn the line at the ice cream.
At least I had a healthy dinner. I barbecued up some chicken breast, corn on the cob and potatoes. I included a picture of the $35 Weber barbecue I bought. I cleaned it and Reid painted it and now it looks near new.
Not much to report, other than the foot seems to be getting better and I'm mentally looking forward to Sunday's race. Reid doesn't want to come to the race, he finds them boring, but Alice is forcing him to come in order to keep her company.
Our plan is to head up to Muskoka around noon on Saturday, I'll get my race kit and I've booked a local hotel near the race site. I'm really hoping we have some good weather. They are predicting 22 C, but who knows, we have been having below average cool temperatures all Spring. The one thing I do know for sure is that the water is going to be COLD.
I was texting Davis Sohor the other day and he did a race in Manitoba last weekend and the water was 13 C. He said his feet were frozen.
