Perhaps not suitable for logging, but I can't recall working this hard on any recent training session. Spent five hours clearing trail on the new 4-hour bike course - which looks great now, but we suffered hard in the heat and the bugs. Finished with a well-deserved swim and some equally well-deserved ice cream.
Opted not to race at Creemore to save the ankle any unnecessary strain before Death Race, and instead did some nearby venue scouting while Heather B tackled the 25k. We then we headed up to Bark Lake for a weekend of final RockstAR course checks. Great ride out and back along the 8-hour Stage 1 bike course, which is in fantastic shape this year!
