Just a little something aroudn 5k effort to sharpen up for the half marathon this weekend. Got my hair cut and took a solid nap. Did some minor yard work here and there and fixed a few small things. 

PM: Off. Planned to run, but the time got away from me.

PM: 90' on the trainer. 226W. HR 141.

Decided to do this session rather than a zone 2 ride or one of the shorter sessions I was thinking about. I was hoping for about 310-315, but I didn't quite push that power. Couldn't quite find my cadence. HR was solid. This was a good deal stronger than when I last did it at the end of September.

Saw 5 snapping turtles in under 3 miles in the morning. I guess the rain woke them up from the swamps or something. Legs felt very good in the evening.

PM: 5 hours 46' (101.3 miles). 196W. HR 141. 17.5 MPH.

Planned on a good 4-5 hours, but my pace was really solid through the first half as I was averaging in the upper 18 MPH range, so I figured 100 miles would be aroudn 5:20-5:30 so I  figured why not knock out another hundred this month. On the way back I got some solid winds that made portions unpleasant, but eventually settled into a rhythm. Hit Orion Oaks for a lap around 92 miles and around some of the the neighborhood roads to round it off. Felt a bit sluggish after 60-65 miles, but felt better a bit later in the ride. I don't think I ate or drank enough. I did do a 10' interval at 4 hours 30', That was 278 watts (284 normalized) 20.7 MPH HR 166. 

I think that is three hundreds this month. Last year I did 1 and I had only done 1 one other time in 2020. They are definitely getting easier.
