    great Sufferfest - Elements of Style 8.72 mi 00:38 04:20 pace

    Light spin to shake out the legs. Focuses on pedaling drills and body position. Good video!

      So, I realized during my miserable ride home last night that I should be spinning once per week even as the weather gets warmer... So much to learn. Is Sufferfest online DVD?

      They are downloaded videos from thesufferfest.com. No DVDs. They are sick, twisted, brutal, and fun! They all have awesome race footage from a variety of grand tours, spring classics, world championships, and various other races. I have them all.

    Garmin said 7.1 miles, TM said 7.61. I am going with the mill on this one. :) Nice interval workout today. Backed off the intervals to 7:08 today.

    Here it was:

    great Cross-town Trail, Part 5 2.4 mi 00:45 18:45 pace

    Great day for a hike with the Scouts. Saw deer scat, owl pellets, found a 6-point buck skull and some leg bones. Finished up with some coffee and hot cocoa in the woods. All-in-all, a successful hike!

    good Steady State Intervals 24.52 mi 01:15 19.6mph pace

    Same workout as the other day. The 4 x 10 min SS intervals were a bit harder today as the legs were a little worn from yesterday's race.

    good Shakeout Run 4.08 mi 00:36 08:45 pace

    Just another balmy 21 degree morning for a run. Kept it easy just to loosen up the legs before tomorrow's 5K. Hopefully the snow coming today/tonight won't mess things up for the race.
