A "Short" Ride
By yakshaving on Apr 28, 2007
Went for a ride today. I had been planning on something fairly short maybe 20 miles.
52 miles, 14.4mph, 3425 Calories
Started at home rode to the WOD in Ashburn headed towards DC, Stopped in Reston (~14miles) for a snack and to stretch a bit. A guy at sitting on one of the benches asked my how far I was going, feeling good I said McLean, instead I continued on through Vienna, Dunloring and into Falls Church (~Mile marker 7.5) adding another 16 or so miles to the trip.
At the turn around I had been averaging 16.6mph, the ride back was a little slower and towards the end I was toasted.
