PM- 75º and warm. 6 Mile WU then 6xhill chargers (uphill) & 6xhill sprints (downhill). I used the bike bath and the built in Dam Hill to do the chargers. Roughly 300meters up and thus down the other side. You get the idea. My legs will probably hate me, but good effort today and I am happy with the results.

AM -71º warm. While I am not logging any fast miles these were very challenging trail miles. Fishburg lot to Rip Rap to Taylorsville lot/dam wall - over the dam to the connector (x2), Yellow loop (x2), Orange loop (x2) -lots of hills. Ended up with 17 miles and felt good after. Legs are fatigued now, but I'm good with that. Yard work time.
