Easy ride, at first, then pushed the last loop. Man, Pope Airfield can be tough if you want it to be. That last loop killed the legs.

Swim today was awesome! Did 2x 500m time trials at HIM speed. First 500 (warmup) was 10:03 for 540m, second was 9:44 for same distance. Pool was 27m. Will swim tomorrow and try wetsuit at same distance.

My goal for Augusta: 4:40.

Killer.! I pulled for most of this ride. Felt really strong out there today, even on the way back from the town of Star. Moderate to strong headwind on the way back. The hills on the end of the PIT course were tough after 70+ miles.

We took it easy for the last loop (5 miles, or so) to cool down and just talk about the ride.

Augusta next weekend, then the last week of high volume after that...if you can call 15 hours high volume! ha!

Hard effort on the bike today. Rode with Steve and Mike. Steve took off like a bat out of hell...no warmup, no notice, no nothing. Barely could keep up on the tired, dead legs that had run almost 18 miles the day before. I pulled the second and third laps, but had NO power and no stamina. Legs just felt dead.

Swim was good! Going to take wetsuit tomorrow and give it a go.

Long run this morning. I actually felt great at the finish and picked it up to finish strong. The weather was not bad. A cool 53 at the start.

Because of Augusta next week, I won't be doing a long run, however, do plan to do one more long run the week after of 2:45 - 3:00. That'll be my last long run before taper.
