2012-05-280:08:130:00:260:26:090:00:330:16:500:52:14Amazing night. 2nd run was unbelievable. 2nd fastest Du to date. (Didn't run much last week - maybe that's the key!) - oh, but I did raise my seat 2cm.
2012-05-210:08:430:00:270:27:080:00:340:10:400:47:34Only did 2-15-2. DEAD TIRED after Victoria Day Chase. Had Tri-bike with new Vittoria Corsa EVO CX Tires. I think they made a big difference.
2012-05-140:08:190:00:290:26:180:00:250:17:160:52:50R3 with clip-ons. Fast wind on the way back from bike. Nearly PB - best in the past 3 years. Solid 2nd run (CupaJoe was pacing me).
2012-05-070:05:500:00:250:26:570:00:380:12:130:46:061-10-2 with Laura. She totally rocked the bike. Awesome effort.
2012-05-050:07:550:00:360:28:300:00:150:17:000:54:18CMC Du in Long Sault. Felt good. Bike seemed faster, but perhaps I still haven't found my legs (also low tire pressure). Nice 2nd run.
2012-04-120:08:320:00:370:28:380:00:340:17:380:56:00Cool night. Windy on the way back from the bike. Biked with jacket on (aka parachute). Felt great on 2nd run.

24-Sep-110:07:460:00:270:26:370:00:250:18:370:53:54CMC Du in Long Sault. Blistering 1st run. 1K @ 3:46. Hammered on the bike. Ideal pavement / weather. Ran out of gas on the 2nd run. But awesome time (Considering lack of physical activity in the preceding 12 days!)
12-Sep-110:08:070:00:300:27:000:00:320:18:270:54:38Bike conditions seemed tough, but felt like I was giving it 100% the whole time. Cool and overcast. First run was fast but seemed easy.
29-Aug-110:08:170:00:260:27:200:00:340:18:010:54:40Raised bike seat again! Felt fine. A bit of wind on the way out on the bike. First run didn't feel as fast as it way. 2nd run felt okay. Not bad considering bummed heel.
01-Aug-110:09:070:00:340:27:090:00:280:19:390:57:00Tried to take it slow on first run intentionally. But still didn't feel energized on the bike or second run. Pretty tired.
25-Jul-110:08:330:00:240:26:300:00:300:17:590:53:59Cool weather. Good bike (Adjusted position, plus 70k+ biking earlier in the day); held back a little on Run 1. Felt pretty good. SB!
18-Jul-110:08:290:00:290:27:430:00:240:20:530:57:59Hot and muggy. Honestly felt good on second run, but apparently was running very slow!

0:44:291-10-2 with Andrew. Pretty hot, but not unbearable. 4 min PB for Andrew.

0:56:19Warm. Sucked on the bike, felt like I had no power. 2nd run was tough. Slowed down big time after the turnaround; surged on last k, but felt terrible.

0:54:38Cool and overcast. Better bike. Raised seat a bit. But, perhaps a fast night for biking anyways? Not bad considering terrible state of fitness.

0:55:35Hot! First warm night of the year.Bike felt tough, but looks like it was an SB -- still early. Need to get faster on bike!!!
0:54:10Tired after Victoria Day Chase. Ran 1st K on 2nd run, and then circled back with ChantalMP. Probably ran 2.75k for 2nd run. (Guessing on Run1 and T1, I forgot to Split my watch)
09-May-110:08:170:00:340:28:390:00:250:17:220:55:19Died on the bike. Good 2nd Run.

16-Aug-100:08:180:00:270:26:460:00:300:18:250:54:28Good effort, took 1st K slowly. Strong wind in face on the bike-out. Felt good on run 2.
09-Aug-100:08:040:00:310:26:290:00:270:22:500:58:24Brutal humidity. Burnt all of my matches on the bike; wicked calf cramps on run2 - gave up, and walked most of the last 1.5K.
02-Aug-100:08:380:00:300:27:550:00:250:19:160:56:50Stopped to help someone on bike (again), lost time. Died on Run 2 trying to out sprint Steph; walked last 100m.
