I slept great in my tent last night here at Rendezvous Beach on the south end of Bear Lake. I woke up to 33 degrees at 5:00 am, warmer than 29 in Pocatello.
This is going to be cold today, biking in 35-40 degrees. I have said repeatedly that I am a fair-weather cyclist, rarely riding in less than 60 degrees. I plan to wear a smartwool base layer and wind jacket over my wet tri-kit top…we will see how that works. Add some gloves and socks. I dont have pants, so my legs will have to stay warm from the burn of the turn.
I totally forgot my gel flasks at home! And upon arrival here, I can’t find the new batteries I bought for my cadence sensor, so no cadence today….not all bad because I want to concentrate on heart rate on the bike.
Here are my goals for today. I think they are doable if I don’t freeze up on the bike.
Should be a really nice day. The wind died down over night and aren’t expected to return more than 6mph. Going to be sunny once the sun breaks over the mountains.
My overall strategy is to have a nice warmup swim, a moderate effort bike ride to enjoy the scenery and end of season, and a nice moderate run that builds to a big and strong finish to this season.
