Today's Climb

Well Gina had stuff to do today so I thought I'd do GMR. Nice day but I didn't see one rider heading up. That's a good thing cause that means I didn't get passed. But looking at my Garmin info, I see that I am getting older fatter and slower ha ha! No biggie cause Fast Man Jason didn't pass me today. He has this thing of passing me/us right before the final downhill to the shack. Today, no pass but he was right behind me when I got to the shack. Only thing I can think of is that maybe he had to fix a flat on the way up ha ha!

Well anytime Jason passes me, I don't feel bad. No need! He is #6 on the "gate to the shack" leader board on Strava! ;-)

I got in 19 miles and 2654 ft of climbing and only stopping long enough to snap a shot and say hi!

Cripes - you can look at somebody's "5 min" and "10 min" power ratings - Jason's is damn high (that's my skinny legged effort on the right, Jason on the left) Sigh.

5 min Power 864 w 315 w
10 min Power 688 w 253 w

Thought I might see you overseeing SART today - nope. I can tell you why GMR was empty though, everybody else was down near the beach.

I thought about it but figure I'd rather do the flats on the second day.

Check out my power, I'm a wimp.

Yeah, we're in the same neighborhood, power wise. I guess that just means I don't need a power meter.
