Yesterday was bike day. Had an awesome bike ride.
I was supposed to go biking for 30 - 45 minutes, with 1 - 2 periods of med-high strain. I decided to time it using my oh-so-pretty iPod Nano, in it's new Belkin sport strap. Then I used Google Earth to figure out the distances.
Below are the results:
|Segment||Clock time||Time elapsed||Distance covered (miles)||Avg. Speed (miles per minute)||Avg. Speed (miles per hour)|
|Start - Lincoln Way at 9th Ave||19:50:00|
|Get to beach through Route 1 - JFK Dr at Great Hwy||20:02:00||0:12:00||3.73||0.31||18.65|
|Return through Route 1||20:20:00||0:18:00||3.73||0.21||12.43|
|Get to beach through Route 2 - Lincoln Way at Great Hwy||20:30:00||0:10:00||2.75||0.28||16.50|
|Return through Route 2||20:43:00||0:13:00||2.75||0.21||12.69|
|Get home - Lawton St at 10th Ave||20:53:00||0:10:00||0.63||0.06||3.78|
So what's the pattern?
I start off with more energy maybe? Possibly, but it's more of a downhill vs. uphill story. The high speed segment are all downhill... which makes sense, since I am going from slightly above sea-level to actual sea-level.
Today is swim day. I need to practice all the drills. It's not going to be great.
