Thought I would share this. It’s a training report from a new device I am using for when I am out on the bike. The Suunto watch is pretty cool. Over the years we have done loads of monitoring, but often in the form of data from a Polar being put into my journal. This is great to have some software to gather and produce info like this.
Since the start of the year I have been working on the bike trying to do between 200 & 500km a week. Nothing specific as the why just the joy of getting out and moving again. The session below was yesterday and it was 80km in the afternoon.
Some of the information relates specifically to the Suunto product and the area’s it highlights for measurement.
You can find the explanation’s online at www.suunto.com
James was given one of these in the lead up to Beijing and felt it worked well. I grabbed one from our bike store, which the boys have given me heaps of flack for. Seems I am getting a reputation as the gadget tester. I do love new little toys and plan to use this over the next 12months to log much of my training.
Why you might ask? Well I like the idea of personal challenges and think that I will get involved in a few bike races during that time. Small step though is what I keep reminding myself. This is just part of what I love about challenging and push myself. Seeing the changes, improvements and moments where I either break through a barrier or hit a wall.
