Had a good warm-up and then hit the throttle. Made it through the turnaround at 20K in 29:10 (the 180 was already completed and back up to speed, hate those) and was gonna hit 22-23 mph on the way back BUT I flatted by one of the rock slides that always has a lot of rocks and I just couldn't miss them all today and hit a small but sharp one. I cooled way down and only had a 28-32 tube so I took my time trying to get it in perfect so I couldn't get back up and running fast. I pretty much 56x12ed it home and took a break. I am 99.999% sure I would have hit home between 1:01 and 1:03 and I was aiming for a 1:04:59/39:59 split. Gonna try that one again next Sat hopefully.
After a week like this I was toast mentally and took an hour break before heading out in the Vibrams to push the stroller. Did 9.1 miles in 1:11 and the middle 7 were about a 7:35 pace so pretty happy there. I had blood squishing out the vibrams bc I have some hot spots and started too fast in them inside on a high friction track and just have not let them heal so I had to throw them in the wash tonight.
Gonna be getting some good numbers for March and gonna stick with it.
