I've been posting some on Facebook and Twitter. I'm liking both as the time it takes to post crap about ME (it's all about me) is nothing.
Yesterday I rode Columbine Mine, the ~8 mile/ 3000ft climb that comes at mile ~44 at Leadville. Then I drove to Powerline and rode it also. It's very apparent that at Leadville I have to bank on my climbing fitness and just cruise the descents super chill (which was my goal at Silver Rush too. Ha!) But I do have to say that every mile I descended yesterday my confidence only became more strong. I have pictures from Leadville on my Facebook page...
Today was tempo hill intervals... 4 X 1000ft (2.5 mile) climbs at HR 155-170 which is bustin moves for me now. The climbing legs felt spectacular.
And my ribs are getting better every day (that I don't crash). Only a very faint twang when I breath deep and I even sneezed this morning with out much pain.
