Spring Training

Decent weather has arrived, so I no longer have an excuse not to get off my ass and start doing some preparation.

Today's ride:

Date Route Dist Time Avg Spd Year Total
2003/04/16 bike path to Trader Joe's and back 13.5 km 41 min 20 km/h
That was 22 min out and 19 min back. It's a gentle climb to Arlington Heights, but apparently enough to make a difference. I felt it embarrassingly clearly -- had to drop out of 7th for a while, even.

Status: not pathetic. I passed half a dozen other bikers; only got passed once. Soon I shall be studly like David and Molly.

Updated (4:50 pm): Put my numbers in a table, because it looks more athletic.


Hooray! I always find that hill more effort than I think it will be, too, and wind up downshifting. I'm just chalking it up to "working on my cadence".

Excellent plan, by the way! Sounds like a good trip!
