Triathlon Tuesday 6th Edition

 

How Running Power Meters Work –From the trainingpeaks.com blog explains one of the new developments in running – the power meter.  We are all familiar with the cycling power meter here is a great primer on the running version. 

Speedfil between the arms hydration system – I have been using the Speedfil Z4+ which has the cage, water bottle and hydration lid all included.  This system gives you the ability to use any standard specialized-type water bottles.  With the included velcro strap the bottle is help tight and the internal washer keeps the lid leak proof.

Garmin Quick Release for 920xt- I mentioned this in a previous Triathlon Tuesday post.  This attaches your Garmin 920XT to the Speedfil Z4+.  You remove your band from the watch and install the quick release bracket to your bands.  After that, the watch / computer head snaps on this attachment for your wrist and then on to the Speedily Z4.  Great way to get your computer on your bike.  The attachment is secure and there is a positive snap when it is properly secured. 

Run with Power by Jim Vance – I’m enjoying this book.  I need to improve the weakest part of my triathlon which is the run.  I like Jim’s view on metrics, especially power in Triathlon 2.0.
