Below you can find a summary of my weekly training sessions, and I also take this opportunity to give you a summary of everything that has happened on the web during the last week and the latest updates in the sports technology sector (so that you don't miss anything). I also take this opportunity to make small notes of interesting links that I have found on the internet in recent days.
If you find something interesting that you think is worthwhile, contact me through Twitter or Facebook From time to time I also share or retweet information or interesting links, so don't forget to follow me on social networks if you want to know them all.
So let's go with the highlights of this week.
This week's news
A small list with the main news of the page and of the sector, happened during the week.
- Black Friday by the minuteI'm sure it's the best tracking you've ever found, in fact I've updated the post more than 50 times to add new offers I've found by tracking the network (and those you've provided me through social networks) and to mark as expired the ones that had already expired.
- Celebration of the 2015 Bitácoras Awards GalaOn Friday, at 6:30 pm, the award ceremony for the Bitácoras 2015 Awards took place in La Casa Encendida in Madrid. If you have followed the blog, you will remember that it was nominated in the category of Best Technology Blog. Finally, I was not able to offer you the award, but as I indicated on Facebook, my best award is having all of you behind me.
- Garmin Fenix 3 Update - A small update (advanced race dynamics news are not yet available on the official channel) for Fenix 3, correcting two possible errors in version 5.00.
Links of interest
The most interesting links I've found this week, almost all of them are curious news related to sports.
- Belgium's response to silence on Twitter - We are still thinking about the terrible events in Paris. Belgium is on high alert, and in some police operations it has asked for silence on Twitter so as not to give any clues about its operations. The response of the Belgians is the best one can have against terror.
- Mike Padilla's basement - Do you have a basement at home dedicated to sports and running? Turn it into a running paradise like Mike Padilla did.
Here is a summary of my training over the past week.
The slow post-marathon recovery continues. Even though it's been a couple of weeks, the body is still going slower than you might think.
On Monday I started the week with an 8km workout in progression, starting with the first kilometer at 5:22 min/km until the last kilometer at 4:11 min/km. Good muscle sensations in general, and good training to test the Garmin Elevate optical sensor.
On Wednesday new training, more and more loaded with devices. I still have to publish proof of Stryd, Garmin Vivosmart HR and Garmin Forerunner 230/235. So with all those devices in mind I set out to run with the following sensors and devices:
- Four pulse sensors: Garmin HRM-Run connected to FR230, Suunto Smart Sensor connected to Ambit3, Garmin Vivosmart HR saving data and Stryd, although I was not using it for pulse data. And I should have entered Mio Link as well.
- A power sensor: Stryd, connected to Ambit3, only with the power profile. At the moment and until the update of Suunto, it is not possible to connect Stryd as a pulse sensor and a power sensor, you have to choose one of the two options.
- Four clocks: Garmin Fenix 3 simply for GPS data. Garmin Forerunner 230 for the test, as well as Garmin Vivosmart HR. And the Suunto Ambit3 to collect power data from Stryd.
The training took a little less time than I wanted, because around the 8th kilometre I started to feel a discomfort in my left calf, a feeling of overload, so I stopped immediately and rested for a few days.
The good thing is that I don't have any tests on the horizon and skipping days of training doesn't matter much. The bad thing is that with so many tests pending what I need is to go out and test devices.
Of course, the worst thing would be a longer-lasting injury, but that would really break my calendar in two.
And with that... thanks for reading!
