    good Zone 2 trainer ride 16.56 km 00:45 13.7mph pace

    Zone 2 trainer ride after dinner.

    Felt surprisingly good and held a pretty decent power compared to the last z2 trainer ride.

    Progress!! Rehab!! All good things! :D

  3. swim
    good 700m tt 1500 m 00:26 27:41 pace

    Boom, 10 more seconds off of my 700m tt time! 1:37/100m.

    300m w/u ( 1:43/100m )
    700m tt ( 1:37/100m )
    500m easy c/d ( 1:52/100m )

    How much more speed can I get before my tri in may?

      Also, last two workouts garmin swim has accurately described my stroke type just as the 910xt did before, even on the intervals. Perhaps the earlier experience was an anomaly?

    good Zone 2 test 10 km 01:06 10:41 pace

    Excellent run. Warm up for a km, then keep the heart rate at the top end of zone 2, adjusting the treadmill speed as necessary to keep it there.

    Just a quick boot around the neighborhood to calibrate the footpod, as it was giving *interesting* readings at the gym.

    Should have done this as soon as I swapped devices back. :p

      How do you do that? I've never done it on my footpod.

      On my 310xt

      Settings > Run settings > Foot pod > Calibrate

      You have the option of calibrating it by gps, or by entering a specific distance, then running it.

      I just do gps since it's REALLY clear where I live, but if you have an outdoor track and can go EXACTLY 1,000m then that might be slightly more accurate.

      Once calibration is started, you just go ahead and run it! On gps it will automatically stop, but on the track for a specified distance you'll have to stop it yourself.

      Done

      Well this looks easy. I thought it'd be complicated and make you measure things out.

      Dustin, you are not a slow swimmer. This is an excellent w/o. I hate having to navigate around other swimmers. Great job.

      OH I FORGOT TO MENTION!!

      My garmin footpod and hrm were dropping out, sometimes at the exact same times, so I thought it might be the garmin itself, but replaced the battery and NOTHING at all!! BOOM!
