would be nice year round, keeps the clothing easy and provides reasonable excuse for a shirtless Hansel to wander into the splash pad post-run.

I might take Friday off if you're up for another round. This easier run sounds very desirable for the off-season.

How messy is RBG? That is usually a nightmare in spring. I've been avoiding a loop for that reason, especially given how slow and slick Grindstone bruce trail is.

Rbg by the creek after the boardwalks near the end was by far the muddiest bit but not quite springlike conditions. But it is only a short span and the rest of the route is manageable. A few really greasy climbs and descents but the shirts are all where they should be. (On the concrete at the splash pad, of course).

Let me know re Friday. Weekend is more likely but I was thinking of doing the fast loop midweekish for fun and to see if I'd improved at all recently.

Planned an early spin class with jenn Wednesday in part by of rain predicted for today, or tonight. Could make gtt into Grindstone mud test.

I'm assuming the two-a-days aren't in your vocab either?

Not for that. I have been planning monthly GTT's to give me a benchmark and a reason to keep going. So I dont really want to do one after setting new wattage records on the Y spin bikes. I need to give it my all in order to squeak out a few more seconds or I'll probably just beach myself until spring.
