    Power Meter Recommendations

    I often wonder what else may play into this, like how you sit on your saddle, are you completely square or any previous injuries with knees/hips that will never be the same again. Would that impact power generation? would it matter? Could you make things worse by trying to balance the numbers when your body is not functionally symmetrical? So many moving parts!

    Recovery from...

    Wow. I've only had the clavicle (plate and screws) and the limiting factor for me for the bike was the wound healing. I did try swimming a bit too early also which caused some of the screws to be ever so slightly loose. I'd reiterate that patience is key. All the best with the recovery.

    What training did you do today...

    So I went for a swim this morning, 2 x 1200m. After 950m of my interval, I kicked off the wall and noticed there was someone in front of me treading water a few meters up the pool. I stopped to be informed that I was swimming in the 'gentle exercise/walking' lane. To my surprise, there was no longer any lane rope. It had been pulled out on my right while I was breathing to my left. My stop starting midway through apparently caused the garmin to count an extra lap as well. I then managed to mess up starting my watch for the second interval... didn't realise for 400m, messed it up again for another 100m.

    Safety - There are dickheads and there are dickheads.

    I do run on the road regularly, I prefer the surface to the footpath (at least in my mind it is a little softer), usually with the traffic (depending on parked cars and whatnot) and the vast majority on sedate suburban streets. Wouldn't do it with headphones in though... asking for trouble.
