Goal met … a good ride

Back to work today, it seems like I’ve not been away, except for all the extra work there is to catch up on.

Out after dinner tonight for a ride, heading out about 7pm. I’m starting to think that the evening really is the best time of day to ride, just as it cools down a little. I decided I would go out for one of my “5km laps under 11 minutes” rides and see if I could sustain this for 30km, and it was hard work, but I acheived my goal with 5km splits of 10:54, 10:32, 10:36, 10:51, 10:48,  & 10:47, total distance of 32.6km in 1:12 (27.3 km/hr). I like this sort of ride, using the lap function to measure each lap, resetting after each 5km, really makes me sustain the effort for the whole ride.

    Re nite rides

    I rode yesterday morning – South Wharf / Black Rock / Albert Park / Port Melb / South Wharf. Morning was perfect – fresh but not cold – and NO WIND !!
    Michelle & I then rode last nite – Caulfiel / Mordiallic / Port Melb / Caulfield. Great temp but a small head wind heading to Mordy.

    I still prefer mornings but you are right – at least of an evening the temp is better.

    Enjoy teh catch up with work 🙂
