The question is: will this make me faster?

I shaved a full 5 minutes off last week's 12 mile run, not because I ran harder (I actually had a significantly lower HR today), but because it was 10-15 degrees cooler.

Getting up at 5 AM to go for a 12 mile run is a moment of truth, I tell you. I will also tell you this - the first tenth of a mile, I knew, out running a 12 mile run at 5 AM, that I was definitely going to be able to get this HIM done in 2 weeks.

Sunday - August 7

Bike
  • 40m
  • 12.88 miles
  • 19.32 Mi/hr

Easy spin recovery session. I also took the opportunity to clean my chain, inspect the tires, adjust my seat bag, change the cleats on my shoes, and study up on race nutrition.
