Jul-09: 54 was the Goal

54, FAST, was the actual goal.
But heat and a wimpy rider led to the revised goal:
54, and enjoy it.

Mostly, I did.  Enjoy it, that is.
Significant cloud cover during much of the afternoon ride helped.

At the 39-mile mark, on Virgil, approaching Carpenter Pond for the second time,
I lost cadence, and it seemed I had lost my energy.
I decided I'd head straight for barn and settle for 49.5.

But once on Carpenter Pond, it was easier going,
and I only needed a 4.5-mile side trip on Coley.
So I rode down Coley until I got to the 42-mile mark;
then I turned around, and headed for the barn. 

Typical slow start -- 14.7 mph avg pace after 9.3 miles.
I didn't keep careful track, but the avg pace slowly climbed upward the entire ride.

Enjoyable ride, at a reasonable "almost spinning them out" mental pace.
The IR ride tomorrow may be tough. 

BJP:  Coley-(DocN-Bapview-Virgil)-(DocN-Kemp-Virgil)- 2/3 of Coley; 54.1 m.; 3 hrs, 24 min; 15.9 mph. 

Q-1 tot: 16 rides; __938.2 m.; _60 hrs, 39 min; 15.5 mph.
Q-2 tot: 31 rides; 2,263.3 m.; 151 hrs, 29 min; 14.9 mph.

YTD tot: 53 rides; 3,535.3 m.; 233 hrs, 11 min; 15.2 mph.
