Yesterday began my rest week in preparation for the Devil's Challenge Triathlon next Sunday. This is the first race that I'm repeating in, so I'll get to see how far I've come since last year. It's the toughest one of the year, with a very difficult bike leg for the distance. As usual, I'm just going to do some short runs and short bike rides to keep myself loose. Mostly I want to give my body time to rest, and my muscles time to repair those tiny tears that you get when you train hard.
Devil's Lake is about 2 hours away from where I live, and last year I drove up the morning of the race, which meant I was on the road at 4:30 am. I'm actually glad I did that because I was pretty nervous (being my first one), and the drive calmed me down quite a bit. This year I'm a little more experienced, and I want the extra rest. So I'm going to stay with some cousins who live in the Wisconsin Dells area (about 20 minutes away from the race). We'll see how it goes.
