Nice cross-cut saw you have there!
Idai, How were you on the 39th descent? Were you pumped cause you knew you had it in the bag, and did you have an adrenaline rush for the 40th ascent?
Good effort! I find repeats like this hypnotic and difficult to count, which is my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
Idai you are a stud I did my biggest ride ever and you make it look like a walk in the park! Good job buddy I mean mate!
good going Idai!
Thanks Guys. Hey John, it was my biggest ride ever too. Carol, I found it hard, but the 39th repeat was the best one because then I knew I would be able to haul myself up the slope one more time. But it was hanging in the balance from about the 35th repeat, and I wasn't sure I could will myself to keep on at that stage. No adrenalin at the end, just relieved to have got through it.
Unbelievable!! Happy Birthday! You are amazing & I'm quite sure you're in better shape at 40 than most 20-yr olds!! Very inspiring Idai
