There is of course the 40-minute climb of Thin Air (remember when I did that standing the whole time during my Knighthood? Damn I was strong then…)
Then there is:
- 16 intervals of Downward Spiral (not including bonus sprints);
- 15 intervals of Revolver (you know…); and
- 9 intervals of Nine Hammers (or TINT)
Which add up to 40 (ish)
Probably many other options. I’m a sad old sack of crap now, but I’ve got to mark the occasion somehow!
Birthdays. Not convinced by your definition of yourself sir
Are there 40 videos - maybe a quad-KH?
Or maybe just invite 40 people to a virtual party and buy some decent malt whisky that’s 40yrs old.
Ok, useful reply maybe … Violator. And hit the first 40 interval harder than you ever have before… short sharp, boosted at the end and ready to eat birthday cake.
This will be my 40th birthday celebration: the La Leyenda mtb race in Colombia. 7 days, 479km, +14,000 m elevation gain. I believe GvA would approve.
when I turned 40 I decided to make a holiday of it, so flew to greenland:
I opted to do the polar bear challenge; marathon saturday, half marathon sunday
but this was before I met the sufferfest
Whatever you choose to do, I think you should do it on a brand new bike
Sort the videos alphabetically and see how far you get after 40 hours
If you get through the first 2 hours of FF and HM back to back then you know you’re onto a winner
Maybe you sort by sufvids and bypass the novids…
So Sir -Clayton, How was this young birthday celebrated?
Or good old fashioned couchlandrian day, ( i know, ill report directly to the nearest flogging station for suggesting such a crazy idea)
I will sacrifice and stick to your advice, only for safety reasons, obviously
