Chasing Crown Chasers
Allison chases crowns … I chase Allison.
Heading north across the Walterdale, I give myself very little time from the last spot under the south end of the bridge. I scamper up the hill, hammer to the north end of the bridge, and just catch the frame I want between shadows as I hustle to my spot.
Big @emilysetlack energy today from Allison means she is working hard with her shoulders high and elbows taking space. We are into the last quarter of the segment, and I remind Allison that now is the time to start prepping for the final push.
This is an excellent way to celebrate a seemingly innocuous workout. Raceday is all fun and games, but an intimate workout down in the river valley with just your watch, and my camera there to witness, provides a story we often overlook — we call them Strava Sessions.
Allison is early in a training block and is using this segment as a testing ground. The overall crown is certainly within her reach, and a 4.4KM segment is the perfect distance to see where she is at. Meet for 6:00AM at my place is all I need to hear. The sun is near perfect for us with deep blue skies, and the course has all kinds of shot opportunities across multiple bridges — just like I like.
