This morning, I tried a little new thing. When I climbed, I took out my iPhone4S and turned the vid on and shot a video for about 20 seconds. Hope it will come out well.
So today, I went to climb a little hill about 10km (6 miles) from my house. On regular weekday, this is my practicing place because higher passes are all a little far away (the one I went yesterday was closest and still 20 miles away). This place has two 10 – 12 % hill but total length is about 1 km (0.6 mile) and a little too short so I usually climb twice or three times but it depends on how much time I’ve got.
Since I rode a little harder yesterday, I rode using about 80% of my energy. Today was sort of recovery type of ride. So I climbed once without using an inner gear and the second round I climbed without working hard. That’s why I decided to climb with shooting a video. At the end, I pedaled hard, though. For the last 6 miles, I went at the average of about 20 miles per hour (which means I rode around 22 miles per hour because I had to stop at the traffic signals and all).
Here’s my Garmin data:
