I commute to work and I usually just do start time minus end time divided by the number of miles I go. With traffic lights on relatively flat roads, I usually go around 18-19mph. Yesterday, I was getting a decent wind and doubled my usual commute distance, I was lucky to average 14mph.

I only use speed to measure how my effort is paying off (and to increase my procrastination before I leave for work in the morning). I measure things with a clock that only shows minutes and plenty of things can skew times/speeds. As long as I move in the direction of improvement than I am happy; the only person I compete against is myself.
