    OMG, one more week! In terms of race week advice, I’d say keep visualising the race, start to finish (go through transitions and nutrition in your head, imagine your effort scale and when you’re going to go up or down.) It’ll help on race day when you’re too zonked to think straight. Also, stay busy at work and with loved ones! Taper brain is crazy business. Also, think positive–you rocked your training, and you’re going to do great! 🙂

    Enjoy the day. I finished my ironman two years ago and I have forgotten so much about the experience. Really just take it all in! Good luck!

    Sounds like you’re ready! I agree with the mental prep Ali mentioned. And work on building your confidence so you can go in feeling strong and capable… read your workout log, remind yourself of all you did to get here. You’ve got it!!

    Trust your training plan! Leave all your doubts aside (as hard as that is!) and focus on how much work you’ve put in and how READY and PREPARED you are – you’re going to do great!! Now just enjoy it all 🙂

    SO very excited for you! It has been fun reading your journey along the way. I’m no triathlete, but I am running my 2nd marathon Saturday. My only advice is to rest up and eat good this week!! Try to stay calm, you got this!!

    I’ve been following along your training posts, I can’t believe it’s been 23 weeks! You have trained hard and it will all pay off. Can’t wait to read your recap of the event. Almost time!

    EEEK!!! You already know all the tricks, I’m confident! Rest is more important than an extra workout at this point, be sure to start hydrating and stick with familiar foods only the 3-4 days before, pack your bags early and go over and over what you need to bring, and stay focused on how AMAZING you are – self-confidence going into it is a huge part of your success! I can’t wait to read the recap!

    Definitely make sure you’re getting enough sleep and not eating foods ‘new’ to you. Other than that, an easy workout or two and you’re ready to go! From personal experience, race day is THE most amazing thing. Soak in every minute – it’s truly a reward for all of your training! Smile often, thank the volunteers, and break the race down as much as you can. You have worked hard and you will have an amazing day because of that!
