Xterra Training - Course Route 9.6

Xterra - Getting Ready to Get Serious!

Sunday:  Base time Xterra course loop at Yargo
9.6 miles
Time:  1:10
Avg mph: 8.2

Felt really good.  Pushed as hard as I could stand on the outer loop.  Started at shelter #5. Stopped about 5 times.  Had doggie with us.  Mike was having a pretty bad off day.  His gearing wasn't shifting properly!

Great starting point to work from!  6 Months till Xterra!

First Ever Bike Commute!

In the spirit of the October Bike to Work Challenge, I'm biking to work!  My new job in Midtown come with showers and I have great neighborhood route I can take.

From Decatur I will be traveling through Emory, Morningside, VA Hi, and Piedmont Park to Midtown.

7.99 mi Bike Ride with MapMyRide Duration: 38:32
Avg Speed:  12.4 mph Pace: 4.8 min/mi


Commute Home:  Ran into a HS/College friend and decided to try a different route home, riding on the beltline then the path to Decatur.  Very Pleasant and I enjoy people watching on the Beltline.
