I took my recumbent with my new and improved drivetrain for a 3-hour plus cruise today. What a difference a non-squeaky and non-rattling chain makes! After a warmup, I averaged 14.7 mph for 2 hr 27 minutes at an average heart rate of 115. This was a good pace. The only mistake I made was I had my Garmin GPS watch in “bike mode”, which I have set up to show current speed and heart rate on the main screen. Looking at the speed too often distracted me from “meditation in motion”. Next time I do a similar ride I’ll use time and heart rate as my main screen, not look as often, and just focus on being present and enjoying the ride.
