Reino Run. Good race, kept a pretty even pace throughout. The leaders (Levi, John, Rory) got away on the climb up Stig's. Pretty hard through the single track, a bit flat on Cottonwood, decent pace on Ermine, then a bit flat toward the end. Lacked the "leg speed" to turn up the pace, but overall Ok. A bit slower (45 s) than last year, which was a bit slower (1 min) than the year before, so the trajectory is not looking good. Need to turn things around and Scotland may be the kick in the pants to do something about it. Heart rate right around 165-170 throughout, except toward the end when it drifted down a bit.
