|Kaila and I before the hill climb|
The races went well, we had the hill climb on Saturday and I had my coach to try to chase down ahead of me. I have done the climb before and had done some good practice hill climbs last week to prepare, so I felt pretty confident.
The climb goes up lookout mountain, it is about a 4% grade and is 4.7 miles. It took me 23 min 10 seconds this year (which is about 2 min faster than last year). I was happy with my race, I really love hill climbs, especially when I can stay focused! I think what helped me this year was knowing my heart rate, and knowing when and how hard to push it.
