    Recovery Ride. 16.11 km 00:45 13.3mph pace

    Flushing out the legs from yesterday. Feeling pretty good. A bit stiff in the quads still, but I'm sure that'll subside in another day.

      Your perspective and recognition of your own strength are the two best things about this whole post. So much work you put in and you're so far beyond where you were just a couple of years ago, even. Kind of an oppressively hot day but isn't there something satisfying and summery about that? Just hard to move your fastest. Awesome work. And congratulations!!

      Nice job Barb! Hot and humid is very tough and you should be very happy. Find another in October and you will kill it. Hope you got that gin and those cheetos.

      Yes it's freaking hot! I ran a 10 miler in 36C heat a few years back, and I stopped and poured my water (I was carrying water in my hand) over this guy who was having apparent heat stroke... I told the volunteers about him, but it seems my water saved him and he was fine after. They found someone else though, who was having heat stroke and trucked HIM to the ambulance instead. Good luck! You'll be fine but keep the head cool...

      hahaha taper brain much? i vote you hydrate well the couple of days before, including electrolytes, then take water as needed during the race. no weird sports drinks you're not used to. One option :) Bring on the sweats!

      @Mari - no such luck...gonna feel like 32C with the humidity! I think I'm going to be *really* happy to see those sponge stations...and I'm hoping there are some nice folks outside with their hoses. There is usually 1 guy in the last km...but hopefully there will be others out there on the weekend! @Ann- if i could i would send it your way!! and yes, i'm hoping so, 4 days to acclimatize, that's enough right? ;)

    Lovely little trail with about 550 feet of climbing, nothing too crazy, but enough to give you some nice views of the Ottawa Valley.
