Well, I did what I had to do. Ran from the Elk Ridge resort to Waskesiu Lake on the highway. Took a detour (adding 2k) to pee on a quiet road, but just could not stop, I was swarmed by mosquitoes!

One stop to pee, have a gel and drink indoors at the lake centre...other wise I drank on the fly and didn't stop. I was buzzed by flies the whole way. My quads started to burn after 12k this was all uphill on the way back. But a good burn. Got it done.
Nice LSD.
Followed up with a freezing Ice bath!

OWS continuous at waskesiu lake. Wow. Just gorgeous. Distance is an estimate. Will have to use satellite later to figure it out. Quite fast and I fired the afterburners on the the last loop. I think I saw someone wakeboarding in my wake. Beautiful, cool clear lake. This is the site of a popular SK race this weekend. Too bad I didn't plan a little better, I could have done that! Great swim. Business meetings start tomorrow morning.

Didn't get any training done today...unless you count moving furniture and dusting.
Bought a big ass tv and set that up....I'm exhausted.

 kinda stiff this morning and I have a sore ankle. Hmmm, that figures.

Was supposed to do 100, but some nasty clouds appeared and I was a little gunshy after the sudden storm in Edmonton yesterday. I had some friends at that outdoor concert where one died and many were injured. The Whole stage collapsed from the storm!

Anyway, got to Lumsden and came back.
26k/hr headwinds on way out
Average 25km/hr out there
Average 40 km/hr on way back!

Nutrition. Water, Glycocarb (didn't want to use up my Perpetuum) a granola bar, e-load pills.

Finally got my brick on. Felt good. Legs not too bad. A little crampy near the end in the usual places, but I got through it.

I think I have to go ride again today...Great!

Started in 5 degree weather. 15k headwind. Finished in 24 degree weather 11k headwind...go figure.
had to wear gloves and a hat and jacket.
Took them off at Moose Jaw. Went out about 80k on the TransCanada highway. Came back home. Picked up First wife and we rode out to the weigh station and back together for the last 25k. This is bliss...sweaty and salty and all.

REALLY didn't feel like doing a BRICK!

You know, I don't usually start my whining about the cold until January. But it is 5 degrees C out there. Sheesh. You'd think November would be warmer.
I'm doing a little ride today.
I'm going to have to alter my route that that I can wear my arctic parka for a stretch, then drop it off at home as it warms up.
