    Well, that was a long dry spell. Lots going on these past months. Interest changes, job changes, maybe even entire career changes. Running's been on the back burner. I have been back at the gy... read more

      Thanks! Most of the changes have been very positive. Even being part of a big layoff wound up being one of the best things that has happened for me. Some really exciting opportunities have opened up because of that.

      Nice one, Keith! Looks like you could use more huskies-- and a sled! ;)

    good Treadmill 1 mi 00:10:07 10:07 pace

    After digging out the car (nice snowstorm going on still) and taking the dog for a walk, I found my way to the basement treadmill for the bare minimum. Keeping the streak alive.

      Do you do anything for Yuki's paws now that it's cold and salty outside? Stay warm, and may your snow shovel be light!

      Having just finished a holiday-to-holiday streak, I agree. Gimmicky. However, I discovered it's almost reasonable to run a mile on roads coated with 2-in thick ice, and doing so has the unexpected side effect of connecting a person with her neighbours. Many more people notice runners than we're aware of. Sometimes a runstreak isn't so much about the running. It's so good to see your post again, Keith. If nothing else a streak would mean more glimpses for us into what's going on with you. :)

    great Holiday Hustle 5K 5 km 00:30 09:40 pace

    Ran with Kristine P. No PR for her due to some ankle/heel issues that caused her to slow down. But she still got #2 in the 9-11 age group.

    • Elodie K.

      Aww, hope her foot is feeling better soon. That is a tight AG grouping! Nice that the RD recognises what a big advantage a few years is at that age. Kristine must be accumulating quite a haul of hardware by now!

      The race was put on by a local Boys and Girls Club. Surprisingly, though, there were relatively few kids running. And, yeah, her medal wall is getting pretty thick.

      No, surprisingly the HRM has an accelerometer that measures your vertical oscillation and all the rest. And if you're not using the HRM, the watch will use its own internal accelerometer as a stand-in footpod - but only for pace / cadence. That said, it can still connect to ANT+ devices like footpods.

      As a race time predictor, I find VO2max is sorta useless. However, if Garmin's algorithm is accurate for you it could be a convenient way to update training paces without having to do a time trial or tune-up race. Polar's had this feature for years but my number is subject to a lot of noise, like temp and type of workout. You really need it to be accurate to ~3% to be useful within a training cycle. For me, perceived effort is more sensitive.

      i know it's all based on FirstBeat's technology, which Garmin has been integrating into their watches for the last couple of years. It's an estimate, which nobody expects to replace a full VO2Max test. Anyway, for me, it's fun and interesting as gadget and data geekery more than any kind of high end training tool that's going to get me to the Olympic trials or anything. :)
