I took a nice steady ride at on the RIT today. I tried to keep it easy, but steady with a HR of 145-155 or so. I'll follow it up with a rest day tomorrow and start getting all my gear washed and packed up. Saturday the plan is to take a nice short ride here in the morning before I leave, then get a short run in after I get to Fairview Heights and check out the course. I'll spend the remainder of Saturday evening just resting and trying to stay off my feet.
The temps are still looking hot so I need to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate in these last few days. My diet has been good all week and I can really feel it energy level wise. My weight is a bit lower than I would have liked, but it's not the worst, 203 lbs. seems a little light for me. Actually, I haven't been that small since high school.
I also appear to have some type of poison ivy thing or something going on that is driving me crazy. It might be drying up a little now and I expect it to not be an issue at all by Sunday. I'll give one more update right before I leave.
