“The secret to success is in the planning, not the plan.”

As logistics planning continues, use of the optimal credit card, airline and travel options continue to be considered. Hotel was booked months ago Focus will shift to getting the equipment planning done and with some luck getting my race wheels ZIPP 808 and my tri bike back from the USA where they have languished for 2 years since the epidemic started in March 2020. If that isn’t possible then will have to modify Cuz’s Litespeed for triathlon use, after all it was a tri bike before I changed it to road use. I think that a new set of Hunt race wheels plus some clip on aerobars and a hydration system is all that is needed, oh maybe a new set of Continental GP 5000. Already have a new chain, anyway more of that in early March, stick to the swim planning for now, so that means strength, shoulder mobility after bike crash (June 2021) kick skills improvements plus fixing all the other swim issues that I have 🙂 and all that in the next four weeks, then it is time to start training.

So for the IMF2022 course I am focused on discovering all about the swim this week on the Langener Waldsee, a beautiful relaxation spot in the center of Frankfurt am Main. Water temp is currently illusive, but I will find it and the there are lots of weather apps relating to water sports on the Langener Waldsee with wind, rain, air temp and more easily available.

The swim course is an interesting wander around the lake starting with an out and back and two left turns and then a short get out after 1.5km followed by a triangle loop around the lake all left turns, so should be a left breather course. Will have to practice that then 🙂
