Yesterday morning, I was kind of down and low. I didn’t bring myself to ride. Usually in fall my motivation starts to go down and from the middle of October, my main ride shifts from morning hill climbing to evening stationary bike riding with watching movies. I thought it might have started though it is still too early.
This morning I woke up at 5 in the morning and really wanted to ride. I had been eating much lately so may be I was too tired or out of energy. I don’t know what will happen, though.
Anyway I went to ride to a regular pass. Today I my work starts an hour later so I took a shortest way and went for 40-mile ride. My condition was one of the best.I went 17.4 mph (28 kmh) and without this 10 – 12 % hill (3 km), I would have done a little less than 20 mph (about 31) and for me, it is close to my best record. I am not riding to be the world champion so it is VERY MUCH satisfying result. I watched my cadence today and it was 72 rpm average and highest was 120. As I was watching, when I went easy, it was about 70, when I really pushed myself hard, I did 85 to 90 on the flats and 65 to 80 on the hill but it totally depended on how steep the hill was.
It was fun ride. Tomorrow I have to work early so I go maybe 10 to 15 miles, the day after tomorrow, if I have time, maybe I will ride a little longer but it totally depends on how motivated I will be and I don’ even know lol.
