Friday - I capped the week with another walk home from work. It's exactly 4 km and I've been walking it all week ... plus walks at lunch, plus a walk on the beach after work on Friday, plus a couple additional walks. All up, I walked 30 km this week.
Saturday - Rowan had to work today. But ... I desperately need to build up my distance and strength so I decided to go for a ride.
Yesterday was a hot day here, and today was 20C by 10 am ... however, it didn't get too much warmer throughout the day. The temperature topped at 25.5C. But that's a lovely temperature for a ride. The wind was also quite light (20-25 km/h) until 5:30 pm when it picked up to about double that.
My route remained relatively close to home and consisted of some back and forth, mostly along the foreshore and beaches. I didn't feel like venturing too far away. Most of the route was somewhat flat, but this is Tasmania and you just can't escape the hills. So there were a few challenges along the way.
And close to the end of the ride, I stopped at the outdoor fitness equipment to do a little bit of an upper body workout.
All up ... 66.5 km.
That's the longest ride I've done since September 8.
However, at this point, I'm still too slow for a randonnee ... my average speed was 14 km/h. Obviously I need to work on speed.
