STRYD CP vs 5k power

It’s that time of the year again. Race time. You’ve been having lots of ‘fun’ with STRYD over the winter and many of us are getting to the point where the taper for our A race is in sight. The Zone-based training we have been doing is relatively straightforward to grasp. But how does that…

STRYD vs VO2 – Just Sayin’

In my gloriously scientific sample size of one I’m pretty sure that, most of the time, STRYD is a good proxy for MY effort. Others say it gets the distance in the Goldilocks zone ie…’just right’.

Suunto 9 – Some Best-GPS tracks

Some of you have asked for some more ‘best quality’ GPS tracks from the Suunto 9. Please note that my understanding is that Sony+Suunto are tweaking the GPS algorithms.
