<p>Good morning, TEAM LIT!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Busy for me so right to it...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>5 mile run early this morning. Easy, easy. Body still catching up from healing the knee.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great start to the week!</p>

<p>Rest Day...yeah! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Solid weekend of training, 55 mile ride on Saturday FIB 30 min run (3.9 miles - 7:48/mile pace).  Why is it that I run so well after a long ride?  Granted it is only 30 minutes but I feel so good.  Sunday was a 45 minute trainer session (watching Jersey Shore...love that show) followed by 1:30 run, 10.6 miles, slow but solid.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope you all don't have a manic Monday, probably wish it were Sunday.</p>

<p>Back from 2 weeks at the cottage.  Had fun but after that length of time with DH, the kids (and no dishwasher), I'm glad to be home and back to civilization!  Got in a fair bit of OW swimming, some decent rides on country roads, plenty of hilly trail running as well as a race (RR to come).  I'm wondering what the best technique is for running up and down fairly steep grades on dirt packed trails as well as loose gravel.  Any tips?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Masters swim this morning.  Did 3 sets of 4x100 m on 1:50.  Felt a little like a tug boat today...I guess that's what 2 weeks of relaxation does!  Weirdness of the day:  chicken bone on the bottom of the pool.  Nothing else for me except a trip to Costco with the three younger moppets.  Say a prayer for me!</p>

<p>Today is going to be an "easy" rest day.. I'm going to move all the crap out of the way that we had to move out of the way for something else.  Tomorrow I am going to try to get up and go for a a short run, and work back into workouts. </p>

<p>Probably some sort of lunchtime run, maybe an easy spin on the bike later, then some kind of swim this evening.  Motivation has been very, very low the past two or three weeks.  Time to at least get back on the bike if I want to do any more time trials before the season ends next month.</p>

<p>Great views though...</p>

<p>Nice photo, Reg!  Where is Chocoura?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Busy day at work, but no kids at home!  I had so many sore spots (neck, shoulder, hand, hip, etc) this morning thanks to quite a few falls yesterday on the singletrack.  A sort of recovery day with 1.2mile OWS FIB 5mile run.  As fully expected, I felt horrible during the run with full of air/gas and could only shuffle.  All I can say is I am glad run is not the 2nd leg in a standard tri race. </p>

Thanks. Chocorua is in the White Mountains - near Tamworth, New Hampshire (I guess a town called Conway would be the biggest town around). We accessed the trail off the Kankamangus Highway - a 30+ mile stretch of road through national forest, which is considered one of the most scenic drives in the States.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The peak is named after a Native American who apparently flung himself off the peak ... legends at <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Chocorua" target="_blank">Wikipedia</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's not actually that tall (about 3500 feet). Mount Washington I think is covered by clouds to the left of the photo, and that's almost 6300 feet.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It is nice and clear on the top though (thanks to a forest fire in the early 1800s), and does offer a great panoramic view of the surroundings.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here's a picture a friend took of the mountain from Lake Chocorua (where we were staying on Saturday night).</p>

<p>I hiked up Chocorua in early-ish October one year.  There were some snow flurries.  Beautiful photos, Reg!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>72 min easy peasy spin on the trainer, in front of the AC, fan and TV.  Still a bit tight from the sprint on Sunday and the left leg didn't appreciate being in aero much unless I upped the tension in the gearing a bit and lowered my cadence.</p>
