I took Thursday off, so no need for a rest day on Sunday. It was a hot sunny day, and I elected to go give my new bike shoes and clips a try. I wanted an aerobic session, so I set a HR cap at 155.
Here are the details on Strava.
Just about the same speed as I have done a very similar course and distance, but with a lower overall heart rate.
I like the shoes. It’s a lot easier to maintain a good cadence and I felt plenty secure. Stopping and getting my feet out is going to require a bit more practice. I was generally OK, but once I toppled over at an intersection. I have also not completely mastered the method to get my foot back in the clips. It took me a couple of trie each time to get the toe lined up right.
