One suitcase, one large Nike sports bag, one backpack, a cooler bag, wet suit bag and one bike…….I think I’ve packed everything. Well the bike isn’t packed – it’s still sitting on the wind trainer. Note to self – don’t forget bike tomorrow!
A batch of banana muffins made, tomorrow’s lunch prepared, snacks for the trip – all ready to be packed.
The car GPS (Garmin Nuvi) maps updated and charged. I have finally figured out where I was going wrong when trying to update (previously unsuccessfully) the maps. Tonight I figured it out! Yay for me!
Chargers for the iPod, iPhone, iPad and Garmin watch – packed.
Checklist for son #2 who is staying at our house while we are away to babysit the cat – done. Food to feed him for 12 days – bought.
Have I forgotten anything? I have been through my checklist several times. As long as I don’t forget one of my bags I’m right!
I’ve rung and double checked our accommodation booking – I’m not taking any chances!
All of this busyness actually serves another purpose – keeps my mind off the upcoming event!
I very nearly slept in this morning. Mr N has already started his holidays but I had another day of work to get through, plus one last training session. When the alarm went off this morning I had forgotten that Mr N did not have to get up for work. Twenty minutes later I realised that no, there was no coffee on my bedside table, in fact no-one else was up, except the cat who was becoming increasingly irate that no-one was up feeding her, given the alarm had gone off earlier.
I had a good session in the pool this morning. Amazing how focused you get in your training, the closer the event gets! Knowing this was my last swim session here before we leave tomorrow definitely ensured that I put all my effort into the ‘hard’ sections of the session.
Tomorrow we leave on our road trip and big adventure!.
