Calgary Corporate Challenge

With the Calgary Corporate Challenge now over, 2nd place in the MTB event and my second sub 40min in the 10ks (00:39:14) it is time now to focus on CX season and Bow8o!! My legs are still sore from the 10ks and I don't know how they will respond tonight in the second MidWeekMayhem xrace..I have been trying to recover from the races on the weekend, but not enough time to do so....:-///. The 10ks on Sunday left me pretty sore, it was a tough course with quite a bit of elevation gain/lost (20mts in the first 5k and 45mts in the second 5k), as I was passing the 7k mark I thought I could pick up the pace and hammer the last 3k, but I couldn't make my legs go faster than 4:10p/k pace and thought I wasn't going to make a sub 40...... I sprinted the last 400mts and as I was crossing the finish line my quads started to cramp all over the place and I almost fall ./--- Well, I sure felt good after I stop my watch in 39:14; ran to the car to grab my camera and went back to the finish line to wait for the rest of my team. With all of them in and with a fifth place over all we were all ready to go home and relax for the day...

Tonight will be the second cx race and after that I will definitely take it easy for the rest of the week and prep for an amazing Bow80 in my single speed!!.
