Green Mountain

5.5 miles
2,400 vertical
41:57up/30 down

Felt like absolute crap today, like I had cinder blocks attached to my feet. Even though I immediately knew it was not my day and I resolved to go slow, it still seemed like a disproportionate amount of effort just to make it to the summit, never mind the time.

Excuses excuses for today:

A 17 hour straight moving/unpacking Ultramarathon on Monday
Crappy sleep all week
Crappy eating all week
Biking hard yesterday (not having been biking at all for a long time)
Skipping breakfast (I bonked hard near the top to add insult to injury)
