That's right, the answer is 833!
I took my new GPS trainer on a mtn. bike ride today and now I know the answers to many of life's deepest questions.
- How tall WAS that hill?
1200 feet, baby, but with two loops at the top, it was 1700 feet vertical!
- How many calories did that hill burn?
Yep, 833! I like that number. Now I can eat garbage the rest of the day and feel good about it!
- Was I really about to have a coronary?
Yes. With an avg heart rate of 155 (including at rest), and peak at 176, I really was about to blow a gasket!
- Did I look ridiculous at my pathetically slow speed, getting passed by all whole came after me?
The GPS was hazy on that one, but I have a hunch...
Seriously, this mountain bike stuff is SOOOO good. Coming down that hill (at 23.2 mph, since you asked) is adrenaline like nothing else. If you live in CO, you must go ride Hall Ranch. It truly is wonderful.
Thanks for the bday present, Dad.
