I am starting to feel so nervous about this race, but I’ve been doing my best to prepare.
I bought a new wetsuit last week. I chose a Zone3 Aspire as it had good reviews and I was able to try it on locally. According to the size guide, I thought I would be a Medium or possibly a Small Medium, but I ended up buying a Small 😀
I’ve also joined Triathlon England. I need a race licence for Dublin and had the choice of paying about €20 for a one day licence or £40 for an annual licence, so I opted for the latter.
The official athlete guide is now available online: http://m.ironman.com/~/media/27065a1e6a7a4e108ef4099e150e2c5e/imdub%20athlete%20guide%202015%20v2.pdf
We’ll be registering on Friday and will also go to a novice focussed briefing, but I’ll try not to be lured into the expo as I really don’t need to buy lots of merchandise!
On Saturday 8th, we will be going to the official swim practice in the morning. We will also be going to T1 to rack our bikes and T2 to check in our bags.
The big day:
7:40 My wave starts
8:50 swim cut off
10:00 12km bike cut off
11:20 42km bike cut off
13:00 79km bike cut off
16:00 lap 3 run cut off (about 14km)
16:10 run cut off
I’m hoping to be finished before 3pm.
This weekend, I found out my race number:
This means you can follow me on the race tracker!
