So i have been a bit irked that cant get my average mph above 13. so i have been working at pushing harder and am dead set to get the average at 15mph.
then today comes, and i am feeling good and averaging 13.6mph and decided to go ballz out on the way back home. i end up behind a full kit roadie and since we are about one turn before the steep overpass decide to slow to his pace and follow him up the hill to see how he shifts and gets up it.
well it turned out to be a soul crushing, eye opening, and ego deflating experience. this guy seriously dropped one gear and flew up the hill faster than he was cruising on the flats. he may have dropped another gear but i was so far behind i couldnt tell. i am still replaying this in my head how fast and easily he went up.
i mean geeeeeeeze i know i am out of shape but dang it cant be that bad. my wife the sweetheart she is blamed it on bike.
ok i am slow, 13mph average, and only and get to 22mph in the flats. so i am thinking maybe i picked up the wrong sport and should now switch to darts or bowling.
