    All I was doing was showing 5 things that may improve run economy. Not having a go. Interestingly strength training was one of them.

    Been work in progress. I actually run better after doing strength stuff. It is like all my muscles are ready to go and I have more mobility. This session I surprised myself after the first 3 I felt good. Then on last one got to 600m and started to lose it a bit and some self talk (just stay strong for one more minute) I relaxed and finished well. Foam roller before and straight after. Get some protein fairly quickly too. Todays run off bike though got 20mins in and I started to sound like Lionel Sanders with his grunting. I wasnt even trying to do it, it was just coming out. An errr it was hurting from a gut point of view. Yet legs were still going strong.

    Friday - Gym and Treadmill - Gym just covered all movement patterns. Treadmill 5x1km (3:24/3:20/3:18/3:15/3:12 pace) with 40sec rest b/n reps Saturday - Easy 60min run early start for work so didn't really want to be up 3:30am after finishing at 8pm friday night. Arvo Brick Session 90mins with last 30mins hard (apparently not hard because no PM to record it) then 30min run off bike Sunday - 3hr Trainer session with hard run off bike - 2x4km Out and back (13:20 for out/13:57 back) 1min break between. Arvo swim and deep water

    Willingness or just don't have the money to spend on it. So to be an athlete you must have these tools or you just wasting your time. Most of what I do today is because I enjoy it. I take more interest in how my body is actually moving and what things I can do to improve that. I have a few little goals but none of them require any tools to achieve. Initially I genuinely asked about a parameter and its usefulness and then I got some who agreed and then others that didn't. Then you said what I do is wasting my time. Well I could either be doing this or be underground. I take the former. I have actually helped Cranky a fair a bit with a few things. She as we all have accustomed to can get over stressed worrying about things that don't really matter. The key to Cranky at the moment is getting her confidence back with her ankle IMO. I have used some tools in the past and after trying to get back to normality after my first accident and the issues with that. It took 3 years to ride on the road again. So to me just riding was way more important. I sold all those tools and to pay for medical costs. Since then it hasn't really even been an option that has been required. And again I will reiterate I am not anti gadget I am anti solely relying on it. Which a lot do

    If you are so concerned about that you should be a pro athlete otherwise you just over analysing everything and lose the enjoyment factor. Yes track your training but don't let it dominate you from enjoying it especially when tech fails

    But overtime you can pretty easily know what cadence range you are in Today I using tyre warmers on my tires just to get to right temp 😂

    Does the same go for running too? Shoe wear, temperature. I do have a normal bike computer which only use on trainer for cadence.

    I improved because I was pushing bigger gear for same cadence. Tire pressure as always check. Basically moral is your data sometimes can be misleading and how you actually feel maybe a good indicator of how you tracking. How it felt is improvement to me. Even the run was improvement as held really good turnover for the entire run. As I said many times before use your gadgets but also use your brain and how you are actually moving. Don't be solely reliant on them as when they fail and they do you will have an understanding on what feel feels like and can continue on.

    I just did the same trainer session I have doen for the past 4 weeks, Same time started each time. The only thing I measure is cadence. At the 4th week I am now riding one gear lower and holding that gear for 30mins then running off the bike. Sorry I know this non gaget and no numbers but how you feel on the bike can sometimes be a good mesasure too.
