First saddle time in a while

I'm trying to stay focussed on the Half Marathon, but I've been sneaking in some cross-training.  Today I had a nice 15 mile ride.  Took some time to practice transition T1 and T2 work--need more practice there.

Speaking of the Half, I did my last speed work yesterday, 10.5 miles at race pace.  With that pace I should come in around 1:40, which is 5 minutes faster than my goal, and 20 faster than my last Half Marathon in October.  And, it puts me on pace for a 3:20 Marathon...which would be an entire hour faster than my Big Sur Marathon 10 years ago.  There must be something to that adage about getting better at endurance the older you get.
