HIM T-2: in Yeppoon

13 August 2010 2,046 views One Comment

okee dokee… so, here I am in Queensland… It’s pretty late and I need to go to bed so some quick notes / thoughts on today:

  • There were lots of scarily fit and intense looking people at the airport, this was not ideal.
  • The hire car and apartment are tip top; in fact better than the car and apartment I have in real life!
  • Main thing on the agenda today was to check out the beach at Capricorn Resort and see what conditions I’ll be facing for the ocean swim. I was audible in my relief when I saw how sheltered and flat the beach is here – no surf AT all. I chucked myslef in for a swim but actually the water is choppier than you first think it might be. So, no surf but with a bit of wind it’s still unpredictable. I’m glad I went in.
  • I have eaten what feels like sooo much today. The last time I felt like this was definitely just before the marathon and I remember thinking then, ‘this better be worth it’!!

Tomorrow, registration, bike collection (please be in one piece) and event exhibition – merch me up baby.
