I start to lay the cork flooring tomorrow and then I'll be done with the remodel. Bob came up and we ran 8 miles easy and chatting with 1500ft of climbing. Tomorrow I'm debating between running up and over Rollins Pass on the Continental Divide or doing a ~8k climb day on the bike. With Leadman so far out I think biking is best right now. Bob called me a hybrid athlete today... I like it. Not sure I have been this fit in October in a couple years. My strength is there, my run is solid and my biking is bad ass.
And Leadman entry opens in 13 days. I had originally planned on waiting until January to enter but there's little doubt where I want to place my energy next year, it's all I can think about. And with that I have become extremely motivated to give everything to the 100 run, sandbagging the 100 bike and going super easy and just dipping under 9:00. An 18:00 at the 100 run will put the Leadman record WAY out there, so that will be the goal. I'm super motivated right now which is dangerous... I need snow to distract me with back country skiing for a while.
And while waiting at Starbucks for an athlete of mine, I doodled this. It's a rough draft of how I'll approach Leadman.
