My first ride averaged over about 17 mph. I really pushed it and felt great about that one. There were ominous clouds moving in so it was good to get the long ride done first. We had a different route so that helped to change things up a bit, too. I then had to really work to get the last 15 completed.
Realization #1: I think I also need to think about some nutrition on these rides. Around mile 18-20ish I start to feel sluggish like I should have a gel or something.
Realization #2: I ride the best at a 3:30 pace.
Realization #3: When it rains, the padding in the shorts works better than a sponge to soak up the water!
