food for thought
Last week was the NYC half marathon.The winner did it in slightly less than an hour or 13MPH.A full 26 mile marathon in about 12.8MPH.I, with considerable exertion (not killing myself but no slacking)can do a 40 mile bike ride in about 14.5-15MPH.Often if against a wind or a little hilly in less than 13MPH.
Greg Lemond in the 80s did his TT route for the TDF in a record breaking 34MPH.
Secretariat ran the Belmont in record breaking time that still stands in 1973 at 37MPH.Not trying to say anything beyond I'm slow as s--t and giving some perspective.
