    Final Low-key Hillclimb of 2007: Thanksgiving Day, Mt. Hamilton

    http://lowkey.djconnel.com/2007/week9/

    Who's in? The series has been great fun so far. Hamilton should be interesting...different character than most of the other climbs.
    Can you pass the test?

    The only thing blazing was my lungs. I am much more suited for Mt Hamilton. However I cant really take off and leave my wife all day to cook by herself. I wish I could do it, cause it is more my kinda of grades. Big ring climbing and keep the momentum going. I havent been doing any sustained climbing lately and it really showed as I died with a mile to the top. I went out a punished myself with 6 repeats on Kennedy yesterday.

    I really wanted to do this one, but I can't bail on my obligations, if the race was earlier in the AM and I wasn't so slow, I'd be able to. Maybe I'll just do my OLH / Skyline / Kings loop a few times or something.
    The nicer the bike.. the more demanding your life becomes off it..

    Good question. I will probably go with 2 smaller bottles, maybe not quite full. Or if I'm feeling really brave, just 1 large one, full. I hate carrying water I don't use in a race...but this is going to be ~1.5 hrs or longer at fairly high intensity.

    My wife and I did a trial ride up MH three weeks ago on the weekend that it was warm and I consumed three large water bottles on the climb. It will be cooler Thursday and I think I am taking two large ones and plan on drinking them. On the training ride, I felt great the last 7 miles and I think part of it was I was not dehydrated.
