      I actually prefer the 0600 (or 0500) runs to mid-day runs. Far less cars to watch out for. :)

      Tad, the leg is OK as long as I keep the runs short and not too frequent. Slowly working on building that up...

    good Recovery spin/cadence drills 7.25 mi 00:30 14.4mph pace

    High cadence drills today. Decided to break out the TT bike for this one since it still had the trainer tire on it from last year. Really easy spin to keep the legs going while they rest.
