As for the race itself... From our short swim in the river both kerry and I have agreed that it is fast water. The sort of fast water found in Kelowna. It just feels like you can grab a lot of water and glide. Great feeling, it my be mental but hey I will take it. I am ranked 19th so I should be able to get a good start position. I believe I will choose far Left and hopfully stay out of trouble.
The Ride is completely flat so It will be a fast ride. only technical part will be an interesting lollypop at the end and the 180* near transition.
The run I shall focus on maintaining a strong pace the whole way. As coach says dig in and enjoy the pain. That comment just brings a smile to my face.
Well I know what to do...give'r.
