Day 3 – The DL Experience

Another day in Lake Lure, another day full of training.

We woke up again with overcast skies but perfect for a run. We made our way down from our cottage to town to get in a 45 minute run. This run went really well for D and I. We started with a nice little hill and then finished up with a good push with sub 7 mile.

Once we had breakfast – it was TT day! The day before we found a good route that looked fun and challenging. We set out around 2:00 ready to have a strong ride but not over do it. I’d say we were successful. The ride had a lot of good climbs mixed with some good stretched where you were able to stretch the legs and push with speed. Here is what the elevation chart looked like.

I think this prepares me very well for what Lake Placid could look like and I can’t wait to ride that course!

Once back from our ride we headed to D’s cousins to have a Sunday Easter dinner. D’s family has been such a blessing to have since moving down to NC. They have allowed me take part in all of the holiday’s that I would usually be celebrating with my family back in NY. I couldn’t ask for a better family to be with.

Tomorrow is all about climbing again! Catch ya later!
