Mountains of Misery, even more Misery this time :)

Mountains of Misery, again....

And 53 minutes faster than last time. That's the good news. The bad news is that I had excruciating IT band pain on the last (Category 1) climb and I am appalled to say that I had to walk about 1/2 mile of the 16% grade near the top :cry: . Not out of energy, although close, but the stabbing pain in the knees was just too much. A six mile Category 1 climb with 97 miles in your legs ain't so easy.

And, of course,Ascent tells the brutal truth: My active time 2 years ago was 7:45, and 7:50 this year. Total time was 8:35. It is starting to look like the best I can hope for on this ride might be 7:59:59 . I was damn close to that when the knees started to hurt....
