My goals have changed for the camp.
1.) Camp completion. I think I can handle this. I've put in enough time over the past 8-10 weeks to know that my body can at least cover the distance.
2.) Polka dot jersey. The climbers jersey. I'm not an ultra light guy, but I'm lighter than most. I don't want to be a one-trick pony, but the majority of my time training has been spent climbing on the bike. The body has adapted, so I'm curious to see how I stack up. My foot started bothering me a month ago, so today was my first run back after that. The foot felt good, but the severe lack of run training means that I'm unlikely to be a contender for the yellow jersey.
3.) Avoid the deep, dark depression of day 5. I want to wake up every day with a smile on my face ready to tackle the challenges of the day. Whenever I travel, I have a strict no-complaining policy. As lame as it sounds, staying positive is going to make or break this trip.
4.) Blog daily with pictures and video. This is going to be the experience of a lifetime, and I want to remember it as vividly as possible. I've put a lot of time into making sure I can document the journey as best I can: tablet + keyboard, gopro for pictures and video, instagram for strava pictures, bike computer for GPS, etc.
In light of that, I've done some testing with the gopro. Her's a quick video of me swimming over the weekend:
We'll be doing a lot of swimming in lakes, so I still need to buy a few things such as a lanyard to avoid losing it.
