    Grizzly Swim - 3000m


    Openwater swimming 0:57'22.6, 3.54 km.
    Grizzly Openwater Swim - Canmore Quarry - 3000m (data includes warmup) - Hard swim, choppy water... but overall good experience. Started to fade on last 2 laps of 6x 500m loops. Probably won't switch to swim competitions anytime soon!


    Payak Loppet


    Crosscountry skiing 2:27'32.1, 47.25 km.
    P'ayak Loppet - 50km SufferFest. Happy to get this one on the books. Never too late for the first race of the season! Tough course for nordic standards w/ 1,000m+ of climbing - ouch.


    Canmore 4 Peaks


    Trail running 11:04'33.4, 52.96 km.
    Canmore 4 Peaks: Grotto Mtn + Lady MacDonald + Rundle (EEOR) + Ha Ling... Used my house as base camp, and took a 'refuel' break at the halfway mark. Changed shoes, socks and off I went - Longest day ever for me in the mtns - Body held up pretty good, but happy to get this one in the books!


    Grizzly 50


    Trail running 4:05'46.3, 49.92 km.
    Grizzly 50 Ultra - 1st overall Tough but good race considering I haven't done much running in the past month (due to injury). The course was relatively 'easy' as far as total elev goes (+1,237m) I struggled on the first 2 loops which were a bit flat/speedy for this guy, but the hilly loops (3, 4 and 5) on the back half helped me take the lead at the 35k mark and maintain it to the end! Results:

    Meet Your Maker 50 mile Ultra


    Trail running 8:35'52.3, 81.94 km.
    Meet Your Maker 50 miler: 8h35 - 2nd place Challenging course, super well organized - Good battle at the front all day long with Mike and Mark. Took lead at 65km, but stomach issues came back to haunt me in last 5km where I lost the lead in the final stretch - all good. happy with run!


    Rockwall Trail - Floe to Marble Canyon


    Trail running 7:01'35.1, 54.02 km.
    Rockwall Trail - Floe to Marble (Paint Pots bridge was washed out) Tried to go for a speed attempt, but only able to match last yr's time of 6h45min from Floe to Paint Pots (give or take a min since I detoured to Marble 1km from PP trailhead). Maybe I shouldn't have 'warmed up' with Rundle yesterday... oh well. Great day, felt ok considering.


    Kneeknacker Trail Run


    Trail running 5:51'48.6, 43.72 km.
    KneeKnacker Trail Race - 30mile Tough day at the office... realized I didn't recover from UXC 2 wks ago, travel, etc... Fantastic course, steep climbs, and awesome technical trails... loved it - just wish I had felt better! So be it. Live and learn.


    Ultimate XC 50km


    Trail running 6:24'06.5, 56.30 km.
    Ultimate XC - 50km (56km) Long day at the office... ugh - that hurt. alot. Might have started a bit too fast, had some low energy moments in the middle, but managed to stay relatively consitent, and finish strong. Hard, hard technical trails, decent elev gain - will be back next yr!

    PowderFace 42 Trail Marathon


    Running 3:53'20.8 Average heart rate 152 bpm, 45.26 km.
    PowderFace 42km (45?) Records fell today! I beat my best previous course record (4:09) set in 2007 by ~16min, posting a 3:53 (times approx as timing had difficulty). Taylor Murphy set a new course record of 3:37!!


    Ultimate XC 58km


    Running 6:33'17.9 Average heart rate 151 bpm, 58.00 km.
    Ultimate XC Trail Race: 58km This was my longest race was also my first real test since getting injured (achilles) about a month ago, so I was a bit nervous to go this long. The course was very difficult w/ 3,000m of climbing! I had a few stomach issues along the way, but I was able to finish strong and took the lead in the final kms. Was also very pleased to set a new course record!

    Orthostatic heartrate test is a common way of testing state of recovery. Make an own sport mode for this purpose, set GPS OFF, search for HR belt and set recording interval to 1 second. Do this test every morning by creating a six and a half minute log. Follow the result on daily basis and detect problems before it is too late. Your body will react differently depending on the state of recovery, illness or overtraining. Follow your own values to learn how your body works. This is how it works: Lay down and start the log. First 5 minutes is average rest HR while laying down. Then watch beeps. Stand up and wait half a minute until the watch beeps again. Stand still and let the watch measure one minute average HR while standing. The watch beeps and the test is ready. Orthostatic HR is now shown as the difference between the stand up HR and the rest HR.

    GPS elevation gain+

    12.6.2013, Anonymous
    Running, Tools for daily use

    Elevation gain refers to the sum of every gain in elevation throughout an entire activity. The Suunto Ambit 2S has no barometric altitude sensor and so the "ascent" display is not available. This app calculates the elevation gain from the GPS sensor. It uses a stronger filter compared to the "GPS elevation gain" app for even better accuracy!

    Cat Hunt

    12.5.2013, Tempoe

    Cat Hunt -pelissä on tarkoitus metsästää kissoja. Peli käyttää hyväkseen gps-paikannusta ja Internet-pohjaista ranking-listaa. Pelialue on 500x500 metriä, joka luodaan käynnistämisen yhteydessä ympärillesi. Pelissä pelaaja näkee etäisyyden kissaan, mutta ole tarkkana sillä kissa juoksee noin metrin sekunnissa. Aina kissan kiinni saatuaan pelaaja voi syöttää pelin antaman koodin sivustolle, ja näin pelaaja saa lisää tietoja suorituksestaan, uusia kissa-suoritusmerkintöjä sekä pääsee ranking-listalle. ----- This game is about hunting cats. The game area is 500 m * 500 m. from that area you have to find a cat which running away (about 1 meter per second). You only have information about distance. When you found it the next cat appears. The game gives you code and you can insert it to web page. The web page shows you what kind of cats you caught! ----

    To make you faster in timetrial or in triathlon, its very important to ensure smooth position & equipment. This App shows realtime your CdA i.e. aerodynamic drag. The app is based on following principle: You produce power which is used in rolling resistance + change in elevation + change in speed + air resistance. CdA is indicates the value a frontal area that is typically measured in metres squared. A typical cyclist presents a frontal area of 0.3 to 0.6 metres squared depending on position. Frontal areas of an average cyclist riding in different positions are as follows Tops* 0.632, Hoods* 0.40, Drops* 0.32

    Running, Competition

    Watch live the estimated time you would be running your marathon, based on distance and time done. Examples showing 4h00 for marathon: - 10km @ 0h50 (3'015 sec) - 20km @ 1h44 (6'271 sec) - 30km @ 2h42 (9'769 sec) It uses Peter Riegel's formula, published in Runner's World, which states that speed decrease by 6% when distance double. (d2/d1)^1.06 * t1 = t2 Avoid bad surprise from other formulas! This one is more precise as IT TAKES IN ACCOUNT THE INCREASING EFFORT. Notice I have corrected it with polynomial approximation as no power function available in Suunto App. x^1.06 = 0.0022*x*x + 1.1612*x - 0.1635 Enjoy!!

    Mountaineering, Tools for daily use

    shows the incline of the hill or mountain in degrees it shows the average incline, not in real-time!! you need to start a new lap in order to evaluate this value correctly explanation: to evaluate this value i aproximate the arcsinus function with Taylor polynomial. As function's argument i used ascent to distance ratio. This aproximation gives value with an accuracy to one sign after dot.
