Sun - 4.5 miles easy (1,000') at Horsetooth. Felt some of that late race fatigue in my legs, but it dissipated as the run went on. Knees a bit sore, but everything else seemed okay.

Total: 110 miles (15,100').

A good week on balance. Came away from the Friuta race a little disappointed that I couldn't hold it together and run a stronger race through the last 10 miles, but as I suggested in my report, it was a good and necessary learning experience. Back on the train this week for continued mileage and hopefully a trip up to slightly higher elevation this weekend. Handicapped Towers time trial on Thursday at 6:00 for those interested.
