The Waiting Game

It's all done! My fate is sealed. Now I just wait, and wait, and wait.
Last week was not quite as much of a taper as probably I should have as I finished the week with just over 10 hours and 30 minutes. However, with the travel next week I will get lots of rest for the legs.
Generally, I feel really good right now. No aches or pains and my workouts are just a matter of holding back the horses as I still want to go. Overall I am satisfied with the training as I look back on it. I sacrificed some runs in the interest of more cycling and I don't think that will hurt me but next Sunday will tell. Since November I have ran just under 1,000 miles, cycled 1,500 and swam about 60 miles. Before that I was in training mode as I had ran the Victoria Marathon in October so I have been at this for awhile.
Now I wait........
