Road Bike 1:38:25  16.51 mi (5:58 / mi)
Threshold effort test ride up Left Hand Canyon to route 72. It went well, was about 2.5 minutes faster than last year. Passed by one guy, but I caught him crawling through Ward.
Road Bike 39:21  16.97 mi (2:19 / mi)
The decent back to the car. I was much more comfortable on the decent than last year and went faster for sure. There are a lot of unreal decenters out there, doing easily 50mph. I averaged almost 26 mph, with a max of close to 33 mph. I'd say this is respectable, at least for my abilities. Yes, the decent effort officially shouldn't be logged given how untaxing it is, but its part of the ride.
Trail Run 1:19:00  8.37 mi (9:26 / mi)
As I was stuck in the hive for a few more hours because of VdM, I figured I'd really tax myself and go for a run. Rock Island 1, where I typically like to park, is the start of a long section of where they are blasting out the canyon, so no parking. Luckily I managed to find a parking spot at the canyon mouth at Settler's Park. Ran up the canyon trail and then up Fourmile Canyon. That road is not good for running, there's no shoulder so I had to hop into the tall grass/ditch a few times when a car came the other way. But I did manage to find a replacement outcrop for the Boulder Canyon outcrop I can't use now. Lots of road on this run, but I wore my trail runners. Felt quite good given the effort I gave just a few hours before. I think my fitness is good, but can I maintain it as it all goes to heck starting Monday?
