Mountain Biking 1:12:00  16.9 km (14.1 kph)
In a continuing effort to sabotage my tapering for this weekend's 24-hour rogaine, I went out at 8:30 a.m. for some Albion Hills single track with 'Bent and Gazelle. The first half of today's ride was anaerobic as I pushed to keep up with the guys, then I sent them off ahead as planned, and did a gentler forest loop before returning home. I am now officially exhausted. It turns out that a Tim Horton's ice cap at 4 p.m. is a great way to prepare for an evening race, but the combination of caffeine and adrenaline had me awake till 3:30 a.m. That, plus higher intensity effort than usual in recent days, has wiped me out. I'm going to do as little as possible before Saturday. I've got to check flags on a 4 km O course tomorrow, but I'll go as slowly as the bugs will let me.
