    I Suck..............Not!!!!

    Rode my hybrid today for the first time since being sick with some upper respiratory virus for a week. I use Strava on my android phone to record my data. When I finished my ride I saved the data and didn't pay it much attention. When I got home I was asked how far I rode and the distance was 33.7 miles but my avg. speed was 10.9 mph. This didn't seem right since I knew my avg was 14.6 @ 19.5 miles when I made my first stop. It wasn't until I was able to look up my ride on the computer that I saw my avg speed at 30 miles was 14.4. At that point the graph took a nose dive down to 5 mph then it dove in a perfect straight line from 5 mph to zero for the next 3 miles. Does anyone have any ideas as to what happened. My feeling is that if I had lost the GPS signal completely my avg would have dropped to zero for the last 3 miles. I was really disappointed until I looked on the computer.

    Ay fter reviewing my data on the computer and looking on the map I found out that the ugly operator error happened. I had paused it at the 30 mile mark to fill up with water and forgot to restart it so it didn't record the last 10 miles of my ride. Ooops.

    Oh well. At least you are out and about again. You can always start fresh.

    I am glad to hear that I am not the only one that does this. Seems like every time.
    Congrats on getting back into the saddle after your illness!

    The only thing I have to remember is that I am going to forget. Keeping that in mind helps a lot. Just arrange some kind of reminder.
