My cooldown involved waiting out the worst of the storm under a bridge with a homeless guy. Not ideal, but it worked.

I think the storm was the best part of the weather this morning. Great cool down.

I'm glad I had a car this morning. Next time I'll wrap it up before the sky turns black. Sounds like it could have been much worse if the storm had tracked a few miles further south.

Yeah, Julia I saw you pass me by on one lap, then after I was finishing one lap I could just sense the storm coming in Good thing that I am still in my off season so any training is bonus for me.

I am! I might be doing laps by myself though, since those fellas are too fast for me. Email me if you want to meet up. I'm trying to get 42 miles in tomorrow, so I will try to be there around 6 am.

Meh. Internet hasn't been working at home since Wednesday. For the a group I'm planning on 3 x 9 mins. That should equate to a short loop plus the stretch north to the Lincoln. After a warm up lap we'll do that 3 times using the rest of the long loop to recover/ regroup.

It's great to see other groups coordinating as well. Looking forward to seeing lots of dc tri gear out there in the am!

Anyone planning on going tomorrow morning for the ride? I have a white Cannondale with red bar tape and plan on leaving the corner of Ohio and Buckeye at 6:15.

If it is not raining and HP is not flooded out, I will be meeting up with a group of people around 6:30 at the pool parking lot, you are more than welcome to join.

Disclosure - We don't keep the 20+ pace.

Tania.

Is there any possible way to find out if Hains Point is flooded without having to go down and see for yourself?

Thanks,

Tania.

Anyone know if HP is flooded out? How would one find this out besides going there and being sad?

I was down there this morning around 6:30 and the roads were wet but clear. I'm going to give it a go tomorrow morning.

I hope your bike is adorned with that lovely bouquet you battled for.

Hey everyone, looks like it should be pretty dry by morning.

Here's a plan:
30 mins zone 1-2 then
2 x 4 mins zone 5 with 2 minutes rest in-between
The rest of the time zone 2

I'll be running afterwards too if anyone wants to get in on that. One short lap slow with 3 x 2 mins zone 5 built in.

Bring your shoes!

Man Patrick you were really pulling hard on those 4min intervals...IN YOUR SLEEP!

It was a venerable ghost town out there this morning...

Hey Smacktalkah,

Yeah, we were pulling pretty hard. I was keeping track of time so didn't see speed, but I'm pretty sure it got up in the low 30s--definitely a leg buster with these shorter intervals. I think we ended up doing about 7 short laps with about 8-10 guys. Then during the run afterwards, Brady and I met up with Phil on his 1:45 run as we put in 4 miles with 3x2mins worked in. Tough!

Where were you again?

Hmmmm, got down there are 6:34 and didn't see a single person, rode the usual way and didn't see you all on the turnaround stretch one bit. Finally met up with Bobby and he hadn't seen anyone either...

Were you guys doing short laps...because that would explain you not catching Bobby or I and not seeing you on the turnaround stretch.

Just got my new TT bike, so I was out there riding solo again to get used to the position. Short loops make sense. I saw the group once and thought I had gone fast enough to catch up to them, but then they pulled away.

Yeah, we rolled out at 6:32 on my watch and did short loops. (Chad, I know you know this, but for others) if you arrive after the group takes off (me included sometimes) to find the group, ride backwards on the short loop. You'll find the group faster and you'll be sure not to miss us.

Looking ahead to next week, I won't be down in the mornings, but will post some workouts to use.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!
