Well my gym closed down on friday. I went for a 2 hour mountain bike ride in the hills today. Tried yesterday but was turned back by mud, snow and ice. Got on a different trail at a little lower elevation today.
We (Tint Elvis and I) planned on doing our go to hill workout- ~ 4 miles, with 1400' of gain in the first two miles- it's tiptoe steep in stretches! Anyways we take off from the trailhead and 99% of folks take a right up the main gulch, we headed for the steep ridge and was surprised when another guy and his dog followed in behind us. He stated that he didn't think anyone else used this trail (which they don't), I told him like to hit once every couple weeks. We were making conversation which isn't easy as it's steep right off the back. I'm pretty sure he was thinking we'd move over at any moment to let him by I just slowly increased increased the pace and pretty soon there was no more conversation, I kept pushing the pace and eventually I could tell he was falling back. I kept it in high gear and completely lost him, never let off the throttle until the very top. Needless to say I was thoroughly smoked! Funny what motivates a person
I havent been keeping up with posting on here, but still been doing workouts (3-4 miles a day plus the athleanx home workout he posted.)
Today, figured I'd try the 22s again. Last time I dnf @43 mins.
Today was 38:47 and complete.
