I just went for a long cruise to determine what my average speed would be on journey around here. I took a roundabout path that had lots of up and down hills, side roads and four lanes (and even gravel), and red lights...etc. I really mixed it up to get a good average. I hit the timer on my watch and noted the miles on the odometer...i finally stopped to eat at Subway and figured the miles in my head and stopped the watch.
I didn't really think about it til i got back home and started converting minutes into hours and whatnot...Anyways, I travelled 27.5 miles in 37.5 minutes. The minutes convert to .625 hours. When ya figure it, my avg speed was 44 mph. Now, i may have HIT 44 mph twice on some good downhill runs, but it should be about half that. What the heck am I leaving out? I spose those physics classes in college didn't pay off too well huh? I'm pretty sure the watch is ok, but when i get a chance, i'll take a car on the same path to check the distance.
I could only wish for a 44 mph avg speed ! That's more than you can do in a car around here...although I did pass and Escort a while ago...hehe.
