New PR up Montebello

October 3, 2009 12:46 pm

I joined the Low Key Hill Climb race today up Montebello.  This hill is about 5.3 miles in length and a climb of 1,980 feet with an average grade of about 7%.    I was able to take nearly 5 minutes off my best previous time set last year.  My final time was about 34:25.

I kept my heart rate high the entire climb with an average of 168 and a maximum of 174.  After the initial ramp-up, I keep it in the red zone for the whole climb, as you can see below (click graph to view enlarged).

Nice time. You maintained a good high average heart rate the entire time.
