New Strava PRs & #1 rankings ๐Ÿ‘

At the end of each month, I rest for 2-3 days, and then re-test myself. When the gyms were open, Iโ€™d complete an FTP test on a spinning bike. These days, I time myself up the steepest, most challenging, local hills. Iโ€™m fortunate to have 4 right out my back door. They are not long (1.5 km), but have grades ranging from 5-13%. These are my new monthly test.

Yesterday I climbed them all in succession. My objective was to set a PR on each, and claim the #1 ranking for my age group if possible. Surprisingly, I did both ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I have been climbing more this past month, and have been feeling stronger, but I didnโ€™t really expect to claim all of the top rankings.

Iโ€™m ready for the local mountain climbs next ๐Ÿ˜‚
