Saturday: Tour de nulle part

Thunderstorms forecasted for this morning so I decided to not row.  I went for a bike ride in the early afternoon instead.  I headed out to the west of my town, where it gets quite rural.  If you live out there, we say you live in the middle of nowhere, so viola, the tour of nowhere…Tour de null part.

It was 45km of rolling hills.  Nothing too steep, but challenging for a novice,  I did it in 1:43, so a speed of 26.6 km/h.  The main point was to get some good low intensity aerobic training, and on that point mission accomplished.

WHo knewthat Google Earth can give you plots of elevation, speed, and even HR from GPX data?  I had no idea!  I found this when I was playing with the data from my run in Austria from yesterday morning.

A good 66 minutes or UT2/UT1 and another 10 minutes above that.

Tomorrow:  Steady State row on Quinsigamond.
