The scenery is not as pleasant as Arizona. The people have shedded clothing and are so white that no lens can prevent blinding my eyes. And there is always a chance for more snow. But today, the temperature rose to a sweet 72 degrees and I took advantage of it.
First thing I did was load up the Cervélo and head out to the country where I could blow out the carbon...so to speak.
55:40 / 20.8 mph
Then I came back home, put on the LunaRacers and went out for a very warm run. Can you say 'cotton mouth'? I was dry as a bone. I would have worked it harder but I was overheating like an Edsel on Route 66.
24:50 / 7:15 pace
Overall it was just fun to feel hot and sweaty while also having loose muscles without having to stretch and stretch and stretch. I do need to recalibrate the Cervélo's computer, though. I thought I was absolutely flying as per the bike computer I went 21.18 miles and averaged 22.4 mph. This was not consistent with the Garmin (values show above).
After I got back home I went into the settings and I'm guessing the bike shop set the cycle computer for a 700cc wheel when mine is a 650cc wheel. So, I think I fixed it via a rolling test to determine the circumference for my Continental Competition 650cx22 tubular tire. I mean, you have to trust the Garmin, right?
Have a great weekend everyone!
