Here is a summary of my weekly training sessions. I also take this opportunity to summarize what has happened on the web during the last week and the latest updates in the sports technology sector (so you don't miss anything). There are also small notes of interesting links that I have found on the internet these days. If you find something interesting that you think is worthwhile, let me know through Twitter or Facebook From time to time I also share or retweet information or links of interest, so don't forget to follow me on social networks if you want to know them all. Here are the highlights of this week.
This week's articles
This is the content I posted this week. Don't miss anything!
- And the 2016 season is over - At least "the official one". There are always some races at the end of the year, but they are more relaxed competitions and those for which there is no specific training.
You don't know if you have to connect your device to update it? You received an automatic update and you don't know what it includes? Well, I'm here to tell you.
- Suunto Spartan, rearranging dates of upcoming upgrades - It looks like a soap opera. But at least transparency is to be welcomed. That said, it doesn't help to have launched a product prematurely and incompletely.
- Garmin Edge 520 Update - The Edge 520 also receives the LiveTrack automatic activation feature, and two new data fields to select from: distance and time ahead or behind.
- Upgrade Garmin Varia - Correction of errors
- Garmin Fenix 3 Update (beta channel) - Upgrade to the latest version of Connect IQ. Improved LiveTrack auto-start feature and bug fixes with VO2Max calculation and some notifications appearing empty.
- Garmin Fenix 3 HR (beta channel) update - Same as above.
- Polar V650 Upgrade - Modified the behavior of the end activity button. In addition, several bugs present in previous versions have been fixed.
Links of interest
The most interesting links I have found this week. Almost all of them are curious news related to sport.
- Javier Gómez Noya's other training session - Funny video to celebrate the Princess of Asturias Award for our best triathlete in history.
- Planning a marathon for 2017? Here's your guide - Clear, concise and without frills list made by Alberto Merino. Ordered by date of celebration, with the price marked for each one of them and a direct link to the organization's website.
- First data analysis of professional athlete data in Kona (As promised, the first analyses from Kona are coming in. At the moment 1TP11We have access to the data of the marathons of Lionel Sanders and Matt Russell.
You can perfectly appreciate two different behaviors. Matt Russell on the other hand managed to make a constant effort throughout the race. This allowed him to reach the doors of the top 10, recovering 13 positions in the marathon.
Lionel Sanders started too strong looking for a position on the podio. But the climb to Pilani left him "split" and he could no longer regain the previous pace, perhaps too daring.Meanwhile, I have already received the new Stryd. Compare the graphs you have seen above with the following one, running at easy pace for an hour.
Constant rhythm with no elevation changes, equivalent to having hardly any wear and tear (at least during that hour).
And with that... thanks for reading!
