Transalpine Day 5
DAY 5 - BERG SPRINT 6km 1000m up.....Give it YOUR ALL BABE....And TEAM ENERGI did and climbed up the ranks a bit....We did a time of 1:04...and we were
pumping it! Holy cow did that ever feel short! Just got back from the Spa place...oh it's got everything in there.....doesn't hold my attention too long though....The naked Sauna part was OK though.....
Well I'll tell you, if any of you were near the tent of Karrie and Simone this early morning as we awoke...you would have thought...What the heck is going on? Non stop laughter.....as we both awoke and looked at each other ....we were freaked out! Totally! Like something from the Night of the Living Dead....I have never in my life seen my face like it was...and hers was pretty much the same, except for ...she didn't have a black eye. We were sooooo puffed out...our eyes looked almost closed....I took a pic...to use as my mirror and was in shock....we could NOT stop laughing...You wouldn't believe it.....people were in shock as we walked through the camping shower area....we were trying to cover our face....I looked like Rocky just coming off from a fight! We have heard from others who have done this event many times, that it is very common to swell up in the face and eyes...especially around DAY 5....which is NOW.....Just a reaction from performing day after day. - the body, especially legs tends to swell up a bit too (or hold onto water)........But man am I ever glad I got some pics of that! In face I might use it for my FACEBOOK pic!
Can't wait for tomorrow's early morning look!...That might be a better one for
Oh and another highlight was our pre race Cafe stop this morning....only 12 Francs (almost $15) for a coffee and Simone and Double Espresso for me........now that was a funny one...
I am just thinking now, it would be wierd to get up and do nothing tomorrow....we are so used to it now...it feels like we need to do it...and so look forward to it...
Tomorrow is 37km and only 1300m of climbing up....that means A LOT of running tomorrow and less climbing..... I like a good mix of both but mostly steep climbing and steep downhill...that's the best!
OK good night Until tomorrow my friends..........Ooooh this event just keeps getting better and better...
