The Quadrock 50 mile race was cancelled so what do a bunch of crazy ultra runners do? go run!
Went to start my run, hit Navigation and the screen went blank on my Ambit....it was recording as I could hear the alerts, tried everything including computer connection after run. Stopped at REI and have new Ambit, first time ever I have had a watch fail.
Glad my iPhone was with me, recorded run on the phone.
I cannot believe the trails were dry
Sorry, "<" and ">" characters are not allowed.
Really nice pics there Brad. Early summer storms?
Thanks Greg, very unusual weather, the wettest May in 20 years! It has been difficult for running. Our nearby mountains are 180% of their snowpack.
Shame it was cancelled but it looks like a bit of fun out there in the snow anyway!
Thanks, the race would have been brutal, not sure I would have had sufficient motivation to finish!
Get ready for that snow!
Thanks Adam, Quadrock was cancelled so we had fun in the snow! How about you?
Yes. I've been getting over the first cold I've had in years and was happy to have clear enough head and lungs to get out this morning. I think we are finally over this cooler weather hump. Finally.
Stunning scenery there Brad!
Thanks Greg. Truly fortunate to be here. But...we don't have an ocean nearby:)
Trail running 31:40'32.5 Average heart rate 116 bpm, 152.7 km.Unfortunately, the first aid guy at mile 90 suggested strongly that I not continue, I complied. Pic shows why. Forced to DNF--major bummer. Probably unrealistic to think I could finish starting with one injured ankle. Not my best move but a hard effort.

Told to quit, feet on pillow toes up
Next day ankle
Trail running 11:25'48.9 Average heart rate 140 bpm, 80.47 km.I was hoping to be under 11h and nearer to 10:30. Still having problems with my left foot. Although not much elevation a lot of technical trail and a section with no trail made for more of a challenge. I would do this one again. A great race and well run.
The night before, bugs included!
A running sunrise:)
Running sunrise 2
The most fun trail section
A great aid station in the distance
Trail running 12:05'18.8 Average heart rate 137 bpm, 80.94 km.Quad Rock, a hard race and a hard course but bettered my time from last year by over 30 min.
Trail running 12:56'34.5 Average heart rate 129 bpm, 79.67 km.Trans Zion, slower than I wanted it to be but beautiful.
Trail running 13:43'41.3 Average heart rate 140 bpm, 78.35 km.Fitting that this was my 1000th move! Hardest race/run I have ever done. Hot and smokey, my time was an hour longer than I hoped but happy with my performance.
Trail running 6:45'30.7 Average heart rate 147 bpm, 50.49 km.30 min faster than last year! Downhill matters. Turns out Garmin 910XT (I checked the GC site) and Ambits measured the same distance (30.5 miles) Distance above is from Google-don't know who is right.
I should watch where my feet are going a little better, then I won't be staring at the ground wondering what happened.

Trail running 10:33'00, 80.47 km.Had a good race. My hamstring on my left leg started cramping with 4 mi to so I finished slower than I wanted. Happy with my time. Used a Forerunner 310Xt to record. Details are here if interested. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/99966866
Trail running 7:15'37.5, 51.21 km.Did far better than I thought I would, left HR strap behind, maybe a good thing!! Felt very good for most of the race, was hoping to break 7h but did not quite make it. What an amazing race!
Finished 4/18 in 50+; 22/40 in Masters (30+); 89/199 overall
Running 4:09'49.7 Average heart rate 146 bpm, 31.63 km.Ran from home to Green Mtn Summit and back!

Whether you are a seasoned trail runner (Adam comes to mind) or a newbie (like me) join this group if you're close to the Flatirons. Lets connect, share our passion and perhaps run together...!
it calculates what your pace would be if you'd run on a flat surface, performing the same effort. it uses my running power application to estimate the effort. somewhat similar to strava's GAP.
it estimates running power, similar to what stryd pretends. Calculations taken from GOVSS, http://www.physfarm.com/govss.pdf https://github.com/GoldenCheetah/GoldenCheetah/blob/master/src/GOVSS.cpp slope calculation based on this algorithm http://deltamotion.com/peter/pdf/AlphaBetaGammaCode.pdf
This App counts the seconds that you spend in each of your HR zones an calculates and displays the relative amount of time spend in each zone.

This is an implementation of my Relative Running Economy calculation. It provides a smoothed value for the current RRE.
This is an implementation of my Relative Running Economy calculation. It provides an average value of RRE for the current workout. This app does not use the average HR as the provided value is an integer, which results in a nasty step effect when the average changes.
Rumour tells that one of the secrets behind the success of Kenyan runners is that they run accelerating runs. Inspired by this method of training this App gives you pace guidance through your accelerating run. The start pace is taken from the first half mile and then pace is increased (duration per mile decreased) with 5sec/mi for every half mile. Thus you can adjust your run by selecting the pace for the first half mile.
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.
This is an interval run 6x1km with increasing intensity and heartrate based recovery in between. The training starts with a 10min warm up. The intensity remains steady inside the interval but HR target level increases for every interval. During the interval heartrate is guided and distance left shown. When interval distance is complete there is a recovery period where heartrate should come down to 65% of your personal max heartrate. When your heartrate gets down to 65% of your max HR the next hard interval starts automatically with new HR guidance. Interval session ends after last recovery period.
I wear glasses and by night I cannot read small numbers without them. I liked the original HR Zones (Karvonen) app by guigui but I also wanted to see the HR in the same screen in BIG LETTERS so retouched the original APP to meet my needs. The result here is the HR followed by a . and then the training zone, so 135.2 means you are at 135 beats per minute and its your training zone 2 If you want to record at which training zone you are, use simultaneously with the original HR Zones (Karvonen) app
Max Speed, Elevation Difference, Incline Percentage and MORE! Excellent for: Hiking, Biking, Crosscountry Skiing, Orienteering and any other sport where up/down movements are involved and you want to know answers to all the questions like: how fast? how steep? how high? how exhausting? This APP is a simplified MANUAL version of http://www.movescount.com/apps/app10018294-Hiking_Biking_xCountry_Skiing_Analyzer . Yet, sometimes 'less' actually means 'more' :-). In this version it is you who decides when a given lap starts/ends. In the AUTOMATIC version, there was an assumption that if you do not move for more than 20sec then you've just finished a lap. I guess esp. in case of hiking you might prefer to have a manual control - so you have it - in this APP. The rest of the functionality remains the same, i.e. for each lap it shows: 1) mxS - max speed for the current lap 2) avS - average speed for the current lap 3) DST - distance from the beginning of this lap 4) ELV - max elevation diff...
Automatically counts the number of snowboard/ski downhill runs plus additional instant analysis! Without pressing any button you will see: 1) RUN - the number of downhill runs (downhills are automatically detected!) 2) mxS - max speed for the current downhill (visible if you descent by more than 15m, and then on a chair-lift before you ascent by 15m - for the rest of the time it's chair-lift speed - also good to know! ;-) 3) avS - average speed for the current run (positive values are for downhill and negative for chair-lift) 4) ELV - that's elevation in meters, e.g. the difference between the top of the hill and the current altitude (while going downhill) and for chair-lift it answers the question: how many meters did we 'climb-up' already 5) DST - another magic - while going down it shows you the distance covered in the current run, and when you are already on a chair-lift (and ascent by more than 15m) then you will see the cumulative downhill distance! (i.e. the total distance yo...
This app uses both your GPS Horizontal Speed and your Downhill Descent Rate to calculate your ACTUAL speed relative to the slope you're shredding. It reads out continuously as you descent and will allow you to check your actual speed vs the native GPS horizontal speed readings of your device.
This app differ from other by its ability to be time independent. This means where some apps go crazy because we stop moving, this app is still working accurately and keeps showing the current grade useful to keep a coherent graph. To get an accurate grade, we need to synchronize distance and altitude, otherwise we would have inconsistent values. As distance and altitude have not the same sample rate, we wait until we traveled at least 10 meters then check if altitude changed during this travel otherwise we still wait for an altitude variation to process Grade calculation. In some case, Altitude change may take some time so we need to interpolate altitude (noted as %vint in unit). I tested it since a long time now and i think it is time to make it public. As i don't have a bike-pod yet, i was not able to see how distance is provided in that case. But if you need to test with bike-pod i added the code to use instead of the deniv/horizontal_distance one. If you notice some glitch don'...
This is a variation of http://www.movescount.com/apps/app10011503-4in1_Cardiac_Drift_HR_maxHR_maxSPD made for interval trainings. Here is how it works - you switch with the help of Lap button between "Training" and "Rest" modes - the apps shows you every 3 secs: [*A*] In the TRAINING MODE: (1) TRN - duration in minutes (e.g. "TRN 0.5 min" means 30 seconds), (2) mxS - maximum speed in km/h (e.g. "mxS 5.4 kmh"), (3) mxH - maximum HR in beats per minute (e.g. "mxH 181.0 bpm"), (4) HR% - HR percentage according to Karvonen method (restHR=0%, maxHR=100%), e.g. "HR 67.3 %" (5) drf - Cardiac Drift in % that compares your performance between the current training mode and the previous (training - not resting) mode, e.g. "drf 5.6 %" means that you've worsen by 5.6% (e.g. to keep the same speed you needed to increase your HR by 5.6%) NOTE - it is NOT shown in the 1st Lap (only in 3rd, 5th, 7th, and so onn). [*B*] in the REST MODE: (1) RST - duration in minutes (e.g. "RST 1.5 min" means 90secon...
Check how well you sleep! And identifiy your rest HR! How to identify your rest HR? Well, with this APP it is easy - have a sleep with your belt and in the morning you will have all the data in your Ambit - just transfer it to Movescount and check your charts. Just before a sleep or right after you will see on your Ambit the approximation of your RestHR so far - and you don't have to sleep with the watch - just place it close to your bed. 1) Save this APP 2) Add it to one of your sport modes 3) Enable logging of data - you will be able to see a chart for SLEEP MONITOR - REST HR IDENTIFICATION 4) I configured just two screens for "SleepWell" sport mode: the first with: HR Rate, this APP, and Calories; the second screen with a graph for HR Rate 5) After a sleep it is fun to analyze your HR graphs and "restHR" graph - you can easily identify your rest rate and adjust it manualy in your Ambit (it is not like with SUUNTO_USER_MAX_HR, which is being adjusted automaticaly!) Enjoy!
Inspired by Aleksandra Mikołajczak and Miriam Plana, this App will help you fuel your body the right way after your exercise by showing you how many grams of fat, protein and carbs you should eat. The App is all about energy consumption.

Leistungsberechnung im Untergriff nach http://www.radpanther.de/index.php?id=85 Powercalculation Bugfix: wrong calculation of climb rate
This app implements the "lap" counter as it works in the Altimax or the Core. It calculates the number of ski runs, or the number of hill climbs, or the number of thermals during a paraglider flights, etc. You do not need to press the lap button. A new ski run starts after an ascent of at least 50 m (150 feet). That is, you must ascend at least 50 m before a new descent will count as a new ski run. You can test it by moving the Altitude slider up and down a couple of times.
Gives a storm alarm when sea level air pressure drops fast enough. The gradient limit is 4hPa per 3 hours.
Shows the time of next sunset or sunrise, whichever is predicted to come first.
Oxygen level at the given altitude as percentage of maximum at the see level. Formula: (1+H+(H^2)/2+(H^3)/6+(H^4)/24)*100, with H = -ALTITUDE/7990
Want to know the real incline of the hill or mountain you are heading up? Use this App to find out. Set this in one of your custom sport modes and press lap when starting each climb to see your real-time incline.
Climb counter is for running hill sprints. After a couple sprints, it’s easy to lose count. Climb counter keeps track of how many sprints you have done. Just push the lap button once at the top of the first hill. After that, the app will count each sprint and show you the current total count.
