So here is my elevation chart from my ride yesterday. I thought it had a decent amount of rolling hills and my legs were def. burning going up some of them as I riding a whopping 8-9mph per my garmin.
Then I take a look at Mooseman's 70.3 elevation profile.
Yes I am in total panic mode and I can feel my stomach just turning. Yes I have looked at the course before, but I kindof just forgot how hard it is! There is no way in hell I am going to make it up those hills! I suck at climbing. I need to find hard hills to ride asap.
The course I did yesterday, those hills didn't even qualify for a hill rating which means they aren't even hard hills. Oh great! WTF did I get myself into?
I hear the Columbia Triathlon's bike course is challenging so I am going to head there this weekend and ride the 25 mile course twice. If that doesn't do the trick than I need to ride farther into VA and find some real hills. I do not want to walk at mooseman and look like a wimp. 8 weeks to learn how to climb...
