Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Commute Compare

Went to work on my fixie today after not riding for a long time. Had a big blow-up on the way home, with totally empty legs due to poor eating at work, an empty bottle and a howling headwind. Ended up grovelling. Nonetheless I actually felt OK on the way to work. Attached graph is a direct comparison: 25SEP08 (red) vs. 25AUG09 (purple). Stats are (last year's in brackets): Mean HR= 167 (162), Duration 1:09 (1:11), Mean Speed: 23.6 (23.1). So overall I'm not as fit, looking at recovery, max HR and the flat sections... but I was going a teeny bit quicker.
