Road up to Big Mountain. Stretched out the return trip to get to 50 miles and 3,800 ft. of elevation gain.  I wore my HR monitor just for fun and it average 135 for the ride (155 for the climbing section)

For the route "Emigration (Little and Big Mountain Summits)" on Strava I posted the 57th best time (1:05) out of 1,850 rides by 711 people.  On a really good day without any headwind I think I could do it under an hour which would put me in the top 15 I think.  This Strava thing is kind of cool.

cross training again.  Hamstring should be able to handle 10 miles of running by now.

Interesting results from the Pikes Peak Marathon yesterday.  Kilian finished first with a 3:40 and Max King was 3rd with a 3:50.  Just more proof that Carpenter's CR of 3:16 is untouchable and apparently King is beatable by an ultra guy.

I ventured out on the road today and it turned out to be a big mistake. After spending the last few days on the bike and cross training I thought the hamstring had improved but that wasn't the case.  Started out really stiff, by mile 6 it started to loosen up but by mile 8 I almost had to resort to walking, which NEVER happens.

Crosstraining again,

 Surprise, Lance was stripped of his Tour de France titles. As as result there has been a surge of donations to LIVESTRONG.  Fantastic!

Met a friend at Sunnyside Park and road up Little Cottonwood.  My time for the LC Full Canyon Ride on Strava was much more competitive than last week's ride up Big Mountain.  4 mins to KOM which I think is doable.  61 miles in 3:47 with 5,900 ft. of climbing.
