Haute Route 2012 Day 2 – This is getting ridiculous!

Not too many pictures today. Head down, survival mode. This is one really tough race! No rest, no respite, full on, period. The last climb to Courcheval was pure survival. Full sun, 30+ degrees, 26 km, up and up with no flat spots anywhere.

I swear I thought I might die. Tomorrow is even worse, two HC cat climbs followed by the climb to Alpe D’Huez. I probably will die. The only positive I can see in the equation is that everyone else has to do it too and they must be feeling just as bad.

Tomorrow is going to provide some real entertainment. I just hope I do not have the starring role! Results at http://www.cimalp.com/Live_Res/HauteRoute2012_AN/resultat_officiel.htm. Workout at http://connect.garmin.com/activity/embed/212966934
