Measuring your effort

Every time I do a time trial I learn how much more I need to learn. Last Sunday was ATTA's Season Closer at the popular Champion Lakes course. This course is a flat 5 km loop and we were completing 4 laps. For a change, there was almost no wind making this course different once again.

I was excited and looking forward to seeing what I could do. I may have been a little too excited, flying off fast, however, it didn't take long for me to pay the price. Without my trusty heart rate monitor I have no idea how hard I did go out and what effect it had afterwards. I thought I had brought it home strong but really my last 3 laps were all similar. Needless to say, I was in a lot of pain.

A PB was recorded but I've slipped down the placings. Davina was out to show how much living at altitude helps, smashing the previous Course Record.

To top off our day, the Fleet girls headed into the hills to do some recon of the State Championship course.
