why do you ask? i had a good ride today, average above 15mph for the first time in a while. i really pushed hard for the first 30min. as the heat and conditioning go to me, i backed off a bit, going hard on a couple intervals, but going slow sometimes, especially on the hills. i've related in this blog several times experiences on 'golf course hill' in Seneca Pk. i usually climb that between 9-12mph. today, i looked at the computer and it said 7.5. i decided that Vansevenanat would be a good example of a pasty, pudgy (relative to professional cyclists) flatlander, good motor on the flats, but not worth a damn climbing or in the heat. now, i'm not pasty. really i'm pretty tan. the i can't climb and the heat got to me today a bit. the last 10min i took my helmet off in the neighborhoods.
and an curious extra tidbit abt Vansevenant is that he's the lanterne rougue at the moment. i didn't know that until after i picked his name.
and now to the pool. oh those damn, lazy teachers with their summers off. :-)
