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.

  • Testing the Suunto Ambit3 Vertical - The test of the Vertical Ambit3 has been published. All the information about the new Suunto model.
  • Polar V650 Upgrade - From now on Strava will also reflect the break times you make during your routes.
  • Rotor introduces 2inPower - Rotor presents a new power meter. If their last product was the Rotor INpower, the one now called 2INpower. Obviously as you can guess with the name they have given it, it now measures both legs separately. And not only total power, but separately, so it will also show the balance in the power distribution. They also add Bluetooth connectivity (in addition to ANT+ already present in the single leg version). Everything is very nice, but at a price of 1499 euros it is in the non-competitive part of the market. I guess their thought is that they will have time to lower the price...
  • Polar warns about possible allergies in some A360 units - Polar has sent an e-mail to customers who have purchased the A360. Some units have been found to produce some kind of allergy due to glue residues. If you already have one, you will have received its e-mail.
  • Garmin Fenix 3 Update (beta channel) - Troubleshooting and improvements for the new route profile screen.
  • Garmin Vivosmart HR Update (beta channel) - Important update is on its way to the Vivosmart HR wristband. At the moment only available on the beta channel, but will soon reach the normal update channel. Screen lock, improvements for intensity minutes, algorithm for calculating ascended floors and the algorithm for calculating intensity minutes. A forecast for the next four days is added to the time widget and the calculation of the resting heart rate is improved. There are also improvements in the battery and other failures corrected.

 

Links of interest

The most interesting links I've found this week, almost all of them are curious news related to sports.

 

Training

Here is a summary of my training over the past week.

Buscador de chollos

Another week full of training, starting with a free run on Monday in which every two kilometers I did 10 explosive jumps. Quiet pace at about 140 beats on average, perfect to start the week with recovery.

And once I recovered, on Tuesday I was playing a core work session and then a 4th minute run. I didn't have a set pace, but I structured it into 1×5000 and 1×4000 at an average pace of 4:30 min/km.

On Wednesday, a new day of strength and core work, about 40-50 minutes long with different exercises, and on Thursday, even though it touched on some running and technique, I took it as a break.

I jumped into the water on Friday, doing a swimming routine with various styles, mixing paddle and non-saddle swimming and ending up with an extra 300 meters of relaxed crawl.

A whole week and I still hadn't ridden a bike... That came on Saturday, when it was time for a 90-minute start, doing the central 30 minutes with a 10 x (2 min intense, 1 min soft). Instead of doing the central 30 minutes, I chose to include them in a climb of that approximate duration. And the rest of the start, enjoying a good Saturday morning.

And to finish the week I had 60 minutes of running time along with a short session of slopes. Unfortunately, and it's already becoming a habit, I had to stop because of a puncture in my calf. Again. And I repeat, as is already becoming a habit...

I'll have to make an appointment this week and get a physio to help me unload the twins for good, because as soon as I start to demand a bit of load I relapse. In this case it was the left twin that was affected by the puncture, but the right one also felt loaded. The worst thing is that when I started to feel that I had left the discomfort behind, I relapsed into the same thing again.

Thanks for reading!
