I'm up at Lake Placid

Got here yesterday (Wed). Village was still quiet when we got here, but you could sense the storm coming in. As the day progressed today (Thursday) the cars with bike on roofs and trunk racks kept streaming into town. The sidewalks became busier as the day progressed.

Ran an easy couple of miles today - wanted to check out the hill coming into town- it's pretty steep. It was not hard today, but that is me fully rested about at the end of my taper - I'm sure it is going to be a significant task after riding 112 miles and being about 9 to 10 miles into the run. I managed to keep my HR down around 75% though it was not an easy task as I was running the hill. Did Helen yesterday - ran easy, light weight on the swings and broke the pullups into sets of four so as to not overdo it.

The weather looks good for Sunday - temp around 75 and chance of showers. I'm praying for rain during the run.

I checked in around 10:30 this morning. I'm official - chip has been turned on.

Just plan to relax tomorrow - probably take a day trip, just don't know to where.


  1. I'll be thinkin' about you Martin! Good luck! Enjoy the day! Rain on the run would be perfect :)

  2. Martin, we will be rooting so hard for you to have the race you want!
