Breck Epic Stage 3
Distance 35.8 miles
Elevation gain: 6,200'
There were several climbs and the course was a little confusing today.
The aid stations were moved (penned in by me on the elevation chart) so
I decided to take an elevation profile with me. I taped it to the top
tube of my bike for easy reference.
Garmin track here.
Today involved a lot of climbing and I had an old IT band issue
resurface. My performance was off a bit with this issue, but I survived
the day and spent the afternoon and evening massaging the IT bands and
getting them to loosen up. Jim and I even went to a local promoter in
the race event parking lot called "Elevated Legs". They put big
compression boots on your legs and they inflate and deflate over a 20
Overall it was a good day and I hope that my IT bands tomorrow decide to cooperate.
