My sweet summer days are over and now I am starting to work 6 days a week from now on except for the second Sunday (I can take one half day off a week but usually have to work over time and doesn’t do you good one you go to working place).
On top of all that, I overslept this morning. So I gave up on my 15-mile ride with a little hill and decided to go for a short ride I took yesterday (It is a regular winter time training course, actually when the sun starts to ride much later than now, from around the middle of October).
Then another trouble! My garmin reads 150 kilometers per hour! Actually my device had not been working well for a month or so, I mean it didn’t show and record cadence. Last night I found out that I hadn’t done the resetting process (I was just supposed to press the small button and turn the pedal around) so Main device did not recognize a small sensor.
Well, I was forgetting one more process. I was suppose to set the main device, too, but I kind of thought that i would do it automatically because I had been using it before I changed its battery. The idea that I had to do all the process for setting a whole thing up never occurred to me.
So, my GARMIN data with cadence:
After setting everything on the road, I went for 12 kilometer (about 10 miles) Time Trial, this time, unlike yesterday, I pedaled as fast as I could from the very beginning. It occurred to me because I was able to do well yesterday. I have no time this morning, anyway.
Well, the last time I tried this, my fastest average speed was somewhere around 30.5 but today it was 32.5 kilometers per hour (18.4 miles per hour) and it’s my all time best so far by two kilometers so I am glad. Oh, I can do better if I try this in the middle of the ride, maybe after 20 kilometers or something. For the first 10 kilometers from the very beginning, it is the fastest record. When I rode 140 kilometers early this summer, I rode at the speed of around 30 kilometers per hour.
So, now, it’s time for something completely different. “Commuting” BTW, I commute to my working place. It is 2 miles away and when I can get off work early, I ride back home using taking longer paths (I once rode 50 miles on my way back and struck my wife dumb. 😛
