Went to Carter today to ride with Bikehard and Crash. After getting in the trails i noticed that i was not out of breath like i used to be. I've been hitting hole in the fence for the past month on tuesdays, one saturday and a thursday. WOW....
all i can think if is Gregg saying "man, WTA will greatly improve your cardio" (he also said something about eating a lot of salad or something...lol)
He was right, that 14miles of constant spinning works wonders
I also had some firsts today
Sneaky Snake - cleaned the squeeze between the trees with only a hand on a tree
and also cleaned the climb out (although it looked easier than the last time i tried....either way, i did it)
1st finger - cleaned for the first time
2nd finger - cleaned it all, except for the exit. that up, left, right always put me off balance and i had to put my hand out AFTER i made it over the roots.
3rd finger - rode all but 1 climb, need to work on that one. i kept stopping to look at the drops, but then again, i havent been there in months.
rode the rest of the trails and was happy that i wasnt gasping for air.
only averaged 7mph, but hey...... my username isn't speedy
now is it?
Thanks to bikehard and crash for all of the "dude, you can get that" comments.
Here's a quick vid of Bikehard riding on the tree on one of the trails
