5K TT on the track with Taylor. Temp in the mid 40s, wind on the homestretch.
Nothing good to say about this one other than it's a good kick in the ass. Goal was just under 16, so 5:08, 5:08, and push. Came through in 5:03, so a little quick but not unreasonable. At that point, I tried to get a little more comfortable and Taylor started pulling away. Started breaking down after 6 laps, and went downhill from there. Taylor went 15:38 solo after 2.4K, not too shabby. No excuses, disappointing day and time to kick it into the next gear.
Kind of messed up taking splits but as best as I can tell:
3:08 (3:12s gets 16:00)
Well, now I know where I'm at and it's not where I want to be, so it's time to buckle down. We'll call this a rust buster, it's still plenty early at least.
