Barrier broken

I was able to get back under the 27 minute mark for my 1.5 mile tire towing distance. 3 miles per hour is where I got to last year, prior to leaving for Yellowstone. This is a huge benchmark for me to hit.

Consider that a few weeks ago, I was pushing nearly 40 minutes for the exact same distance. Shaving off 25% of the workout time is a huge improvement.

The death hike up San Jacinto paid off in spades. Every time I do a big, tough trip up some mountain, my training times improve. Just like last year, when I started riding my bike up the steep hills of Carlsbad, California, pushing the limits made training much easier. Or, at least, I’m able to move faster. Towing a tire in the street never seems to get easier.
