Scouting Out Some Challenges – BionicOldGuy


I’ve determined I would like some native challenges to inspire me. One I’ve completed prior to now is climbing the Thomas Grade on my bike. That is just one.5 km, however at a median grade of 9% with a max of 12.5%. I used to have the ability to do it in about 10 minutes years in the past. It is a Strava section, so I’ll have the ability to examine my time in opposition to my age group (which shall be 70 in just a few months).

One other native problem is strolling up Barnard rd, which is 1.1 km however steeper, with a max grade of over 16%. I don’t have a normal to match this one in opposition to apart from my earlier instances. My finest was 11 min 43 seconds just a little over a yr in the past. Yesterday I did it in 13:45, so I’ve a methods to go to interrupt my report. It is a good instance of “coaching is restricted”: I’ve been understanding fairly severely currently, however principally biking. I have to throw in additional climbing and uphill strolling and the Barnard problem will inspire me to take action.
