Road Bike (Kings Park) 49:42  17.37 km (21.0 kph) +281m
ahr:80 max:152 shoes: Road Bike Cleats
Some interesting quirks - Bike clock, strava, runkeeper = 17.37 Garmin = 17.03 - the strava and runkeeper have come from the garmin gpx!?!
Runkeeper climb = 344, Starva = 210, Garmin = 176 - (281 using survey data) ... which to believe!
Took me almost 45 mins from alarm to being on my way - original resistance to the idea of morning exercise was high - then couldn't pump up tyres on road bike cause the nozzle on the new foot pump would clip on... once I got around those issues was good to go.
Road bike felt so amazing - I cleaned it for the first time ever in 10,000km a few weeks back when I cleaned the mountain bike - it ran so smoothly and so nicely... Also the last bike I road was the rotto ferry rubber chain bike... I found the road bike incredibly comfortable in comparison! wow though 110psi you really feel everything, I forgot haha.
Tried to blow some cobwebbs out on abadare down to park and hit 52km I think from memory, think the watch only clock 50.7 but that understandable... Was impressed it managed to calculate my wheel size off cadence sensor... probably knows more about my bike than I do now.
Anyhow was silly to start hard was sore by the park haha. but apparently only a HR of 65 - yeah, ok... Feeling the burn on the legs (I really need to stretch pretty much every day - cause I don't at all). up to the main roundabout. Stopped at the top to try fix my HRM because apparently I was now at 70... lets be honest now... after a few minutes of faffing and strap tightening... my hrm was still at 72. sigh maybe I am just super fit.
1 lap around the park and realised running out of time, damn it. I wanted 3, maybe the next time. Best part though was the dark skinned gentleman who came out of the bush with a high level of intoxication screaming his tits off at the rangers shed... don't know what that was going to achieve at 640am or any time for that matter. Would love to tell you what he was saying but it was too slurred. After a chuckle made my way home.
On my way out of the park from the top roundabout I saw my HR at 52. was like wtf. thinking about it and thought... I wonder... pulled over and looked at the sensor, yes upside down ... you retard. (cant help it the sensor is similar shape to the polar one but upside down so I just put it on that way by default...) That said if you want a really consistent low hr put it on upside down - winner winner chicken dinner!!!
Now to go look at cadence stats and try understand what they mean. oh wait I know, my legs are moving too slow, and my fitness needs improving. wow I can tell that before looking at it. haha.
Oh well one day I will get back down to my 10-11 minute lap time instead of today's minutes. SIGH
Oh well have to restart somewhere.
edit - incidentally I thought it was cold out there, until I got going and realised it was deceptive and was quite glad to not have taken the warmer kit otherwise would have died.
