Was too hot today to train up Old La Honda, but that never stops me. I did the first mile in sub 6 minutes which is crazy fast and hit mile 2 near the redwoods in 12:30. I was right on the pace to break 20, but I started upchucking the soup I had for lunch and had to stop as I pushed it so hard I almost was going into convulsions ;) I know I can do 2/3 of the ride in sub 20 pace on a hot day. Now I need to find a cold day post China and break the 20 minute barrier. I would like to do this before Hoodoo as it would be a great to kill this one. I know Jason could easily do this when he is in shape. This reminds me of breaking 40 minutes in the 10k. Its tough to do, but if you really train for it and learn when to accelerate, I think its doable. We shall see.
