It's been a LONG time.
In a Galaxy Far Far Away.
I've been around the world and life is beautiful.
So tonight I was running late to come home. It was getting dark. And I had no lights. So I went on the Highway to the Danger Zone and cranked out an epic ride home. Huge pace.
27 Minutes. Perhaps my fastest ride home. And it could have been faster, by the time I got to Courthouse on the south east side of 123, it was getting dim. By the time I entered Nottoway park, it was pretty dark almost at 9::05 especially under the tree's. Had to really take it a tad easy up the path to Vaden.
If I'd held my pace all the way into vienna then pushed harder up Courthouse and then thru the park, I think 25 would have been possible. Typically my ride home is the slower part. 31 minutes. Sub 30 I consider pretty good. And the moving time versus total time? 32 mins total. That's bonkers, it's usually 45 minutes nearly with stops/lights/etc.
Total Ride - 58.15. And my lazy 31 in could have cut 4 minutes off. Easy.

What sucks? I was at 20 rides to work by early APR 2016. 2015 I'm only 4 or 5 off pace. Sure I was on the road for err.... 7 weeks, so say 14 commutes. Hmmm. 34 in 2016 still put me at June 1. argh. 97 hours and just under 1K miles.
