My first run from home to work took around 8 minutes. It's down hill all the way, not too much traffic and a very pleasant tripette.
However, I'm getting fitter and I can spin those pedals a bit faster now. In fact, since I got my cyclo computer I've been pacing myself.... seeing how well I'm doing against the clock and how hard I'm breathing. Since I've started recording my PB from work to home is 9.32. Last night in a mini-cyclone with rain and a stop at a busy intersection I did my PW of 9.59.
The worst thing is, I've been watching my times to work and they were always just over 4 minutes. Today I felt fit and healthy. Did for me a whopping 42.5 kph. Stupidly, right through an intersection. Yes I clipped my time to under 4 minutes and nearly got collected.
I do believe I'm taking the computer off the bike for the run downhill from now on. What a stupid way to get hurt.
I now consider myself somewhat chastized. Please feel free to take the p155
