Great workout Wed and nice to have company (very FIT company at that, and to see us both working hard felt rewarding), mainly solo on Saturday, happy to take in the surroundings and thin mountain air! Slept close to eight hours every night this week (except Sunday night, due to my massively peeling painful sunburn from last Sunday's three hour long), massage, stretch, eat...race prep week for sure. One week to go....
