Cardiac Arrest and Suicidal Squirrels

Instead of the called for intervals today I opted for a TT of Clarks. I hate that climb. I have to say, there is no way I could have gone any faster. By the time I reached the little sign towards the top I thought I was going to kill over. I felt fast, well fast for me.  My gps battery was dead so I had to rely on my strava app. I have tested it out and it seems to be pretty accurate. All in all, I was extremely happy with the results. I am also happy to report that I didn't go into Cardiac Arrest. I did however taste blood. I think a TT of Clarks is a good replacement for 5x3 minute intervals. Right? I was pleased with my result. I guess intervals do help.

Once I regained consciousness I rolled down Brocks to Canyon Hollow. Only saw a handful of riders out in the trail. I cruised up Ghost then came back down. On my way back to the EQ Center a squirrel darted out from the bushes and well, didn't quite make it across the trail before I rolled him or her. Heard a Squeek or a grunt. Oops, sorry bout that. Usually its a snake or a lizard that can't escape. First for me.

Im tryin to get a hall pass from Lindy as well as work to do the PC50 on July 9. Not sure if I can work that out or not. Im hopeful.

Our little addition is settling in nicely. She is an eater though! I guess thats good. She has been doing pretty well at night. She sleeps in pretty good chunks, only problem is when those chunks are is still unpredictable. I'll take it though. Hannah was up every few hours like clockwork.

Just a moving tip

Just a tip for the  next time you move. If you move to an area that is still stuck in the 80's aka still has a dude hangin on the back of the garbage truck that stops and actually dumps your garbage this would be ok.

But, since we don't have that here anymore, these people are in for a surprise when they come home to find out that they still have to break down 50 more boxes. Glad its not windy today, those boxes would just be in a neighbors yard.

The new Rim Trail

Made it over to the Draper Rim Trail this morning. This is going to be a great addition to the trail system if Corner Canyon. I rode it  up from Potato Hill to the DH intersection. Must of had some kind of work release goin on today. Saw about 8 kids all with bright orange hats on clearin roots from the trail. Thanks! 
I added some intensity rides this week since imi short on time to ride since we just had another baby a week ago. I must say, my legs feel it. It will be interesting to see if I have any different/better results over the next while. Time will tell. I hope I get somethin out of it.
