Sat, Aug 12, 2017 - 13.50 mi [Cycling] Details
13.50 mi in 00:32:21 hours at 25.04 mi/h on Cinelli Very Best Of. [Cycling] Crit 4/5 (My Best Ever) with My Son - AL Wheelmen Race Weekend - We had a group of 29 riders. I did not place well, but I don't care because it was my best race ever - a very momentous day for me. I got my highest average speed on any ride ever (25.1 mph, compare to my prior best of 23.1 mph) and the first time in a race I've ever stayed with the main group until the last lap surge. There were 3-4 times I fell off 30 yards or so and somehow managed to claw my way back. I sort of zoned out in the effort and when I saw there were only 2 laps remaining, I just couldn't believe I'd held on to the end. I really needed this confidence boost - I was beginning to think it would never happen. An awesome day! Links: https://www.strava.com/activities/1130309169

Sat, Aug 12, 2017 - 6.60 mi [Cycling] Details
6.60 mi in 00:18:16 hours at 21.68 mi/h on Cinelli Very Best Of. [Cycling] TT - AL Wheelmen Race Weekend - I should have warmed up more. I guess I need to start taking my trainer and warmup for like an hour or more for these. Even after 15-min warmup with a few openers, I still felt well below my potential mid-event. I started falling off half-way through this, when I know I should have held about 30-40W more the whole way. If I'm gonna do TT's, I guess I need to practice. (I don't like doing TTs.)
