5x Blue Hill Observatory Rd.
Lots of preschoolers on the road.
At the bottom of the 4th interval I came upon a guy in biking spandex, sweeping the road (the road is in bad repair in places, the top layer has peeled off and lots of gravel is about).
He was sweeping it clear so he would not flat, or fall, as he started up, which he told me he did in about 6:15. Whoa! Apparently he was training to defend his win at Mt Washington this weekend, in the 60-64 category.
He showed me his bike and wheels, all carbon fiber stuff, the wheels were 900 grams, for both of them, and the racing weight of the bike, 10.8 pounds! Apparently the wheels are so fragile they are not recommended for speeds over 20mph.

The usual route with Judy , then on my own for longest run in 3 months, 6 miles! Felt a very little bit of of the left tendon around mile 5, but went away when I slowed to pick up trash along Highland Ave.
