5-Mile Pass Race Report

3 May

I’m happy to report that I didn’t race. How can I report on such an event when I didn’t even go? Easy. It woulda sucked.

After RAWROD I returned home to a nasty case of bronchitis and immediately put 5-Mile on hold. Coupled with a mild case of Lacrosse it was the perfect race to miss and a no brainer. Initially, I was a little bummed because I love the sufferfest that 5-mile is. It always hurts. Bad. I’m pretty sure it’s the longest race of the Intermountain Cup and its relatively early in the season.

After reading some of the reports I was glad I got bronchitis this week. Yes, happy to be sick with a nice rest week after RAWROD.

And, it would have cost about $1 per minute to race with the shortened course. I could get a massage for $1 a minute and not get muddy.

I took the race off and then time trialed Suncrest today. 19:30 on the button and only minimal vomit in my mouth and blood in my ears at the top. Hurt like a bitch.

    I hope you didn’t go 19:30 on your single speed!

    Looks like the weather will be good for a Clark’s TT run mid-week. The #1 spot is yours for the taking…

    Don’t climb that hill so fast….its not good for you. My legs prefer more of a 25 minute pace.
