Blake and I headed to Lake Mead near Las Vegas this morning to ride the course where our half ironman is next month. We road the first 49 miles of the course. It is up and down the whole way, not even a small stretch of flat and it gets very steep a lot. I rode a lot in my smallest gear. The bad part is they say those last 7 miles are the hardest part. I think I will be lucky to do the bike course in 3:10 on race day.
After the ride we did an easy 4 mile run which felt good considering we had just ridden so far.
