Did a little self test today to check the conditioning level. I climbed 7200 feet/58 miles/ 4hrs 50 minutes and only stopped for a 4 minute break. Icing on the cake was really strange weather, Rained on me twice, for two minutes. Cold, fog, humidity, what else can one ask for!..I felt really good on the ride though!
I started back in December at 249 lbs. This morning and all week I weighed in at 228. After the ride I weighed in at 223! that'll be gone after dinner, but hey, I haven't seen 228 in over 5 years.
Last week I did 61 miles and 6100 ft. My buds 'do it all computer' ( Garmin, I think) says that ride was a 4000 calorie burner! I lose weight when I climb!
Leaving Baldy Village. Seconds after the pic, it started raining.
Getting close to the shack a second time hoping for a lil sun, nope, still froggy!
Seconds after completing the 7200 ft... Some say the more I climb, the more I look like Elvis!...An old fat Elvis but hey, Elvis was cool!Hehehe!
