Got 2:00 bike in today, although I was hoping for a little longer. The heat was BRUTAL out there and totally tapped my legs. I knew on the first hill going out of town that it was going to suck.

And it did, but in a really excellent way. Each and every hill was like dragging an ape up the side of the road. But for every ride in the rain or humidity or afternoon heat, all I think about is...if this happens on race day, I totally know what to do.
Incidentally, the Swedish fish failed. Too hard to chew and didn't digest all that well. And for 150 calories, I need to jam 25 of those little guys in my mouth. While riding. In aero. Chaaallenging. And between the Gatorade and fish, I was all cotton mouthed with Red Dye #5.
I have to get out to Performance to restock on Cliff Bloks. And start stalking the Acme's for some Accelerade stocks.
Time to shower and head down to the hospital. Thanks for all of your good wishes for Nana -- she's doing well in recovery!
