ANT+ Signal Boosting

Following on from modding my RunScribe I am working up some MoJo before I hit the track. Part of that process involves wasting a considerable amount of time looking at forums and discovering tidbits like this: This raised a few things in my mind RunScribe can effectively boost the signal by changing the Message Rate…cool!…

RunScribe – Wednesday Morning Signal Boost Escapade

  My ANT+ signal-boosting kit arrived the other day. This morning I got out my toolkit (aka scissors) to install it. There are well-known problems with the Fenix 5/5s (example: garmin forums, 44,000 views ). Dropped connectivity appears to happen with Garmin sensors as well as non-Garmin ANT+ sensors. Clearly it’s not Garmin’s fault and…

Personally I was quite anti- that move at first. It was very convenient for me to…

My Ironman Journey: Running Shock / Impact / Braking

A mate has invited me on a 22 mile run next week. Oh dear. I don’t think I’ve ever run that far. That got me thinking about my newfound injury-freeness. I probably haven’t changed my technique/strength that much over the last year or so despite a few tweaks probably keeping the dreaded injuries at bay.…

SHFT RUN + Garmin HRM-TRI + Runscribe + STRYD

SHFT – "new" running power meter

SHFT is a digital running coach capturing lots of gait metrics from two pods and providing coached feedback.
