I muggy, misty morning with heavy fog. Enjoyed running alone up and down the mtn. I was trying to run under 50 min 10kms but it was 51 minutes for each 10km. I enjoyed the run and felt strong. I'm so happy to be training for the 1/2.
bike hills (mountain on road) 1:05:28  26.95 km (2:26 / km)
Biking on road with JAG, Cricket, Newbie and Valley Girl. They were all on their racing bikes. Felt strong and really enjoyed it. Lead the pace since JAG was just coasting. Sprinted at end. Averaged 24.7 kms/hr and max was 44.6 kms/hr. It was a real blast.
It's cold and looked like rain so I was trying to cram in this bike as fast as possible to beat the deluge. Yesterday we had 4 power outages with lightning striking clotheslines etc...I considered building an ark but my engineer was at work.
I am tired since I've had to take Gravol 2 nights in a row to sleep. It's amazing how meds stay in my system and make me dopey. Anyhoo, the first 10kms of mtn climb was a killer. I wore my yellow sleeveless top and realized 1/2 was up the mtn I was freezing. Decided that the cold and wind and raindrops were all telling me to only do the 42+ route and not the 46+. I really pushed up the cadence and the pace so am surprised I'm only averaging 23.4 It was a FUN ride.
