At the beginning of the week we started to update to version 4.30, incorporating some improvements, especially in terms of navigation. A new HSI compass (probably inherited from D2 BravoThe problem with version 4.30 is that an error was introduced that caused the sports applications to reset (and rename), forcing a hard reset of the clock.

If you upgrade from version 4.20 to 4.40 directly, you will have no problem. If you have gone through 4.30, you will have to do a hard reset in both versions 4.30 and 4.40. It is always advisable to make a backup of the clock configuration data, this week I will explain how you can do it in Garmin, so that you can have it saved in case of incidents of this kind.

I would have liked to add one more day of training this week, but you know how summer commitments are. I couldn't start the week until Wednesday, when I went out for a little over 10 km, a distance that separated me from the town of Benahavis (Yeah, the one that almost burned down this weekend...) A very pleasant training, coming down from the village at night in total darkness and tranquility.

On Friday I made a good trip on my bike, covering 58 kilometers and about 700m of positive altitude difference.

And that's the end of the week. I hope that this coming week I'll get a little more serious and I can do one or two more practices than I've done this week.

And with that... thanks for reading!
