Workout Results 6/17

Today was my first ride with my new pedals and shoes. It went well but I am still having to get used to it and I also need to get used to riding in my new form. Since they raised the seat it feels very different and so I am going to have to make sure I get more time in the saddle so that I can start working on improving times with my new shoes etc. I also rode for a long time today with my aerobars and that is a first. I am still slower in my bars because I am scared of crashing but I did manage to get up to 22.4 mph today! My high speed for my overall ride was 28.1 mph so I still have a long way to go improving my time in the aerobars.

I love it--you're all like, "Oh, my top speed was only 28 mph. I need to go faster," when I'm like, "Holy cow, that's faster than the speed limit in some residential areas!" LOL

You rock, Jen!

LOL! You are so sweet!

I have to try and be faster than all these super fast girls in my age group, that way I can get a head start on the run before the catch me! LOL

Thanks for the support!
