The final gruesome climb at the end of a MTB marathon race I did a couple of weeks ago. After 75km of hard riding both my quads were cramping and my lower back hadn't been cooperating for the last 20km. But I managed to pass five other riders climbing, most people are very tired when coming to this final climb (average 10% for almost 1km on gravel).

Wish I could say the same!

Well while we're at it, from the "10,000 del Soplao" in Cantabria 2 weeks ago. Going up the 34km Piedrasluengas. Total on the day 225km, 4000m climbing.

Last weekend my best friend and I competed in the first ever Female Muay Thai tag team fight in New Zealand (i'm the blonde ha ha). We won by unanimous decision. Such an awesome experience, and a fun way to fight! 3 x 3 min round with the option to tag in or out every minute.

Hoping for some fight photos soon :)
