All the way down, and ALL the way back up

June 16, 2012

This morning we drove to Waterville Valley, NH.  This is the location of our first Tri in THREE WEEKS!!  It was an absolutely gorgeous day, partly cloudy and only around 70 degrees.

My husband, hydrating for the ride.

 

Smiling BEFORE the ride!

First up was the swim, in the COLD pond.  Thankful for the wetsuit, but,  at the same time I am finding it hard to swim in, neck is tight, and it makes me so bouyant that I am really not able to do the breast stroke, which I use to site and rest… Need more open water swims!!!

Then came the bike.  the access road to the village itself.  Down and then UP.  All 862 feet of elevation change!!  I have tried to highlight and copy just the elevation map from my Garmin Connect sight…not able to do that…so click here and you can see all the stats, if you care to.

Downhill for the first 8 miles and did that in just over 24 min…moving…on the way back up…not moving so fast…

All in all a great day…bit stiff after the 2 hour ride home…off to the shower and dinner out!!!  Yeah!!

    Congrats on a tough day! Your slowest was 9.9 uphill, with a whopping 35.6 too? I’d be proud of that!
