RTW 15.04.09 - clipless and leisurely

I went out at 0650 hours.
The orange-red rays of the sun cast on the lower clouds greeted me, on the bike after 5 days of resting.
Subhanallah. What a sight.

Stats today (to):

  • Distance: 12.33km
  • Average speed: 23.6 km/h (this is beginning to be a good habit, beyond 22)
  • Max speed: 40.4 km/h
  • Ride time: 32 mins 56 secs
  • Total ride time: about 38 minutes (traffic lights, crossing the road, etc.)
  • Number of doggies: nil

My average is nowhere near 25, but well above 22. Something to be smiled about.
Again, managed to be in 44/11 ratio most of the time. Except, of course at Kg. Baru Masai uphill before the school. I guess I'm a bit faster than most cars, if they give me the chance to overtake them.

A bit of the experiment - clipless and leisurely. Yeah, not really pushing it this morning. Anyway, a 5-day hiatus got me a bit excited. I might have pushed a wee bit uphill towards the traffic light near Masjid Jamek Pasir Gudang. Man, it feels awesome. It would have been better if greeted with the green light, though.

bro.. pd aku la.. 44-11 tu mcm not a good habit je. u put more pressure on ur knee.. perlu di ingat, lutut nak pakai lama tu, bukan ada spare part pun.

mungkin ko bole try 44-15 or 17, n of course.. with higher cadence.

hang jgn smpi jadi mcm aku.. skang aku dah kene telan glucosamine.. nak tambah minyak kat lutut.
