I had a small setback with my attempt on Squaw Mountain the other day. So I have decided to re-adjust my approach slightly.
This morning I went and rode Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder. The ride was less than 10 miles, but all climbing. I felt phenomenal on the way up...never feeling as if the climb was taxing at all and I don't think I broke a sweat.
Thursday my plan is to attempt Squaw again, this time from Bergen Park, and not Lakewood (what was I thinking?) and then this coming Saturday I think I'm going to go for the Mount Evans century.
Morrison to the summit of Mount Evans and back.
I need confidence more than I need muscles right now.
