the obsessive weather.com and accuweather.com checking has begun. i don't like what weather.com is saying so i may stick with accuweather for a little while. regardless, looks like i should mentally prepare for rain, just in case. hopefully if there is rain it will come on the run. i also realize i need to bring some warm clothes, gonna be in the 50's when i arrive at transition at 5...
questions have started brewing in my mind.
CO2 or manual pump on the bike with me. my frame pump kind of gets in the way of my water bottles and i do not want to have a water bottle mishap. on the other hand i haven't ever used a CO2 cartridge so what if I get a flat and don't know what to do with it?
hat or no hat? i got overheated at my last (first) tri with my hat on and pouring water over my head was less effective with a hat on (not so easy to take on and off with a ponytail). then again it covers a mess of post swim/bike hair. also its going to be 20-30degrees cooler.
drink heed on the run? i don't train with heed but i have a few times without a problem, just don't like it as much as carbopro. if i use what they have at stations i wouldn't have to carry my handheld though and that would be nice.
ok. last day of work. i took friday (and monday/tuesday) off. gotta get this race plan nailed down. any thoughts - related to my questions or general 70.3 advice for a newbie much appreciated!!!
