Chasing Crown Chasers — Strava Sessions
May 13 2021 // Walterdale Bridge, Edmonton, AB
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 spot 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.
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. Deep blue skies. And a course with all kinds of shot opportunities across multiple bridges. Just like I like.
It feels like it’s coming back.
Go Time 🚀
