Okay JG ... I'm getting closer ... !
20 miles @ 20.4 mph (No wind and about 70 degrees and no heart monitor)
1 mile warm-up, 5 miles @ 20.1, 5 miles @ 23.6, 5 miles @ 19.0, 5 miles @ 19.3, 1 mile cool-down (I pushed the lap button at each 5 so I could document my speed)
This is my Martindale ride to go and feed my horses so it's about 11 over there. When I get there it takes about 10 mintes to take care of the feeding. My goal is 30 miles non-stop @ 20 mph. I think my fastest before this was 18.65 on the same route.
My legs are definitly stronger on the bike now than they were a couple of months ago. I notice myself pushing with little effort on some of the hills I used to struggle to get up before and crusing at 22-24 on the flats.
You who live in Lachish, harness fast horses to the chariot. You are where the sin of Daughter Zion began, for the transgressions of Israel were found in you.
