Hoogstraten time trial

23 08 2008

Participated in a team time trial today: a two-lap, 22k race against the clock, with Bobby Hutcherson’s Hello to the wind on my mind. We placed 22nd overall in a time of 32’02”. Average speed: 39.889 km/h. Average heart rate 181 bpm. That means pain. That bacon&egg sandwich never tasted better afterwards. So did the beers. Next year we’ll hit the 40km/h mark. But first, we’ve got a wedding party to attend.

regardless of speed, it takes a ton of heart to go 181 bpm for 30+ min’s. Even at a max hr of 200, this is 90%. Congrats on the effort.
