I went as hard as I could on the Chatfield loop and came up with a good time. I needed that after I had an off week. This gives me a little more confidence going into WTC in two weeks. I think it resembles the WTC course with mostly loose dirt trail/roads with a few risers, although the elevation gain only shows about 200ft (I think it's more). Needless to say it was nice to get in a rhythm for a good hour and 1/2. After the Chatfield loop I just cruised for the final 7 myles feeling pret-ty good! No chain today my friends!
I end the month of February with 264 myles, which turns out to be the most myles I've done in Feb. for the past 5 years.
