New records to work and home. Three main factors for this.
1. I took the 8-10 pound panniers off the bike today. Weather was so nice I didn't need to carry any rain gear or extra layers.
2. I had a tail wind.
3. I've been pushing myself more and I believe I'm in better shape because of it.
Time into work 28 minutes, 33 seconds. Almost a minute and a half off. Average speed was 17.76 mph.
Time home was 36 minutes and 21 seconds. That's nearly a full 5 minutes faster. I'm sure the weight has a factor there with the hill climbing.
