XC Racing Hurts!

Lance Armstrong's Facebook quote: “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” -- Mahatma Gandhi.

Last nights 1 hour plus a lap a Nevis Range was hard. A very steep up in the smallest rings and quite technical, then very, very steep down and then a hard fire road upt o the top of the World Cup 4 cross. Down the four cross with a steep variation steeply down a granite slab, then a narrow slippy bit but next to a burn. Ruri Watt did most laps - airborne! Very intimidating course at first, but when you got the line it became really enjoyable but still a seat of your pant's ride. Considering my head games with this stuff I enjoyed it and rode good. HR graph below.

Road race training tonight then camping with the family. Not doing 10 @ Kirroughtree now as the forecast is very wet, and the family who were to be our support team will be miserable. They are glad they won't be exposed to the portaloos, midgies and flooding. Especially the loos which were really something last year. Also I think they need the rest so it's Camping at Culzean Castle and shopping in Ayr - and some beers for me.
