Rode home from work today. No Garmin data though. How quickly our ‘good patterns’ can be broken when we return to our ‘normal’ grind. While on the ABB ride, I plugged the Garmin in every night to charge up. It was the last thing I’d do before going to bed. Make sure three things were charging — my phone, my camera and my Garmin. WhenI went to turn the Garmin on today, it had almost no charge at all. UGH!
Luckily, I still have my trusty ‘old’ Vetta computer mounted as well. Here’s the basics from the ride home:
Distance: 34.0 miles
Average Speed: 17.1 mph
Max Speed: 33.1 mph
I felt awesome and this time represents a new personal best – I think I have one time that might be a minute or two faster, but I remember that day and there was a kick-ass tail wind the entire way. Today, it was either calm or I had a slight headwind. No help at all from a tail wind! I went up hills aggressively and never had to sit up and ‘spin’ to make it to the top. I just chewed them up.
We’ll see how I feel riding back in tomorrow…
