Recovery ride? - 23:15
So after competing in the
Multisport Classic on Sunday, as today was a public holiday in Canberra we
stayed the night in Jindabyne and a few of us decided to head out for a road
ride today. Obviously we were in need of a nice gentle spin to recover from
the racing the previous day. So what do we decide to do? Why ride from our
accommodation 6 KM on the Cooma side of Jindabyne (ie up some hills) through
Jindabyne, up to Charlotte's Pass (49 Km, mostly uphill) and back. I wonder
wonder if the concept of recovery has not been properly explained to us. On
the other hand maybe Dave and Julie's form of recovery is rubbing off on the
rest of us.
After finishing XPD a few weeks ago they decided their bodies were not up to
competing in the mutlisport classic solo as they both did last year, so what
do they do instead, compete as a team of two of course. Oh and put in some
blindingly fast times (such as Dave doing the fastest final bike leg overall).
I will link to a short report and a few photos from the event once the rest of
my team has seen it, Results are online already though (see the link at the
top of this post).
