you're +60 and can walk 15 kmh? I'd say you're in tip-top shape. well done

Actually I cant believe it myself. The remark was to show that the Max Speed the XT displays should not be taken to seriously.
If you search this forum you can find some posts, that question the data. Probably caused by how the GPS works, combined with the calculation method.

How I understand it: Suppose you move from Point A, to B to C. And for the sake of simplicity suppose that point A and C had correct coordinates recorded, But point B is recorded more to A than C in reality. The average speed from A to B would be to low, and from B to C to high. Although the average from A to C would be correct. If the unit takes the max speed from B to C obviousluy it's not correct.

But at the moment I'm not feeling to bad. Thanks!
