Re: Best running watch you'd recommend?

There are heaps more subtleties but the post is long enough as is (I apologise ..... I didn't have time for a short reply)

Thank you for the long explanation. Definitely no apology needed.

I agree that there are many [more]

Re: Best running watch you'd recommend?

Also I guess everyone's interested in different things. I'm only interested in technology for its utility and value. In the context of training in general and HR monitored training in particular, I'm far more interested in underlying physiology [more]

Re: Nobody Is Watching The Tour de France

Frank Schleck is coming forward and maybe he might turn into a a threat to Nabali. Something to watch.

I picked Frank to finish in the top 10 in the RoadID challenge but at this point I'd consider that a big longshot. He's climbed [more]

Re: Nobody Is Watching The Tour de France

I think until Cav shows up I have to assume the torch is passed. Weird that Sagan can't win a stage though. That was a crazy accident though, it looked like Cav butted (Gerrans?) aside but then he bounced back into Cav off the guy he got butted [more]

Re: Engineers not not get enough respect

Engineers take the more abstract work of scientists, and make something useful out of it. Scientists figured out gravity and inertia and relativity and radio waves, then engineers took over and made rockets to take us to the moon and other [more]

Re: Nobody Is Watching The Tour de France

Today's stage is a stage to watch without question. Big mountains. Stage 13. So sad though to see the battle that was to be, between the two best, not be.

Reminds me of the 1988 Tour. Roche out, LeMond out, Fignon out, Hinault retired,

Re: Best running watch you'd recommend?

While this makes sense, and is probably good advice for current devices, I'm fairly confident that someone will eventually figure out a reliable way to read heart rate without the annoying chest strap.

Re: world cup

Certainly not everyone is going to like soccer, and that's fine. But anyone who thinks this doesn't understand the game. It has far more action and tension than American football. Not even a contest, actually. Most of the game American football [more]

Re: world cup

Soccer is regarded as safer (though heading the ball improperly can cause concussion),

From what I've read in the past year about concussions, this is not necessarily true. It's now believed that a large number of small impacts to [more]

Re: Best running watch you'd recommend?

This question comes up from time to time and I always point to the website www.dcrainmaker.com. He has VERY in-depth reviews of most available running watches with recommendations at various price points.

Well, despite some feelings of annoyance at various plot twists and turns, I would say better than expected. Sometimes it is good to have low expectations.

Re: Protein Suggestions

I'm looking for suggestions for something protein based to carry with me on long runs. By process of elimination/observation, I know that's what I need 5 1/2 to 6 hours out there. I use water/sports drinks/Endurolytes as I go, but after that long [more]

Re: Hobby Lobby decision

I don't like the ruling, but by itself it isn't a platform for a wider weakening of the separation of church and state unless the Congress starts including religious exemptions in every new law.
