Wow, what an amazing race the Whiskey 50 was. I did very well considering my training this season is for XC races. I even got to stand on the podium in 5th place for the Women's Open Category! I never expected that!
My legs fell strong for the first 25 miles and I was riding in 1st place for the women. Then, climbing back out of Skull Valley, my speed slowed and my legs quit hammering.
I felt like my fueling was going well until I hit “Cramp Hill” around mile 40 and I did begin to cramp. I never cramp! But, there I was CRAMPING, so I rode through it and it eventually went away. I am interested on what you know about cramping and why it happens. I know that I was taking in the right amount of calories and e-lytes per hour for the heat, so I'm not sure that was the problem.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the Cat 1 Base Plan, and now the Cat 1 XC Build Plan. I felt strong, fast, and confident on the bike! Thanks so much for all your help! Next is the Alien Run XC, 12 hrs Mesa Verde, and MSC #1!
