Out early for the fake birkie before workie. It was unnecessarily cold at the start, 10 at the car and presumably colder down in the valley. Snow was good though, not afternoon glazed fast, but still plenty slidey. Had a gu and drank my whole water bottle at an hour, before it had time to get cold. Did a few bonus climbs early on to make heat, and phased those out as it warmed up and I got more tired. Felt ok all the way through, despite my extensive tapering, and hit that nice autopilot mode for the third hour that I don't have time to get to anymore.
