HR backcountry loop - 9 AM
40s, clear @ start - snowing @ end
mind/body - good
I let my HR monitor be my governor today, tried to keep it under 160 bpm despite the 1200 ft of climbing. For the most part I was successful, I did record 4 minutes @ 164 but still felt effortless. I started with blue skies and one hour later my legs and face were numb from the blowing snow - welcome to Colorado!
On another note, this guy below is open for pacing duties in 2011. I can hook you up with him if you are having trouble focusing on the trail. He guarantees a PR!
