      Bikram. Nice finish to 2011! Best stretch I've had in quite a while - felt pretty good throughout, but highlights were camel (min 76) and all compression moves. Actually had some minor cramps in feet and stomach muscles--must not have hydrated enough today! Relatively cool and humid, Tmax 40º C.

    • Crosscountry skiing 2:49'09 Average heart rate 133 bpm, 15.80 km

      XC ski touring at Wolf Creek ski area, Colorado, by Alberta Park Reservoir, rolling terrain in and out of woods. Wonderful to get out on some really nice snow, at a beautiful location on the Continental Divide, 3,200 m elevation. Definitely felt the altitude on the long uphills. Very quiet, with only one other XC skier out on the trails I was skiing. Uploaded MemBelt, since T6 doesn't want to reload event, including laps and elevation, after accidental delete. D'oh!

    • Orienteering 1:00'00.8 Average heart rate 153 bpm

      Urban orienteering, Score-O, at University of MD, my first! One hour limit, made 20 of 30 available controls. Sunny and warm, before afternoon showers. Lots of fun, and nice to be able to maintain relatively steady pace between controls.

    • Orienteering 2:11'15.1 Average heart rate 156 bpm, 11.92 km

      Susquehanna Stumble XIV, Short course, with SVO. Absolutely gorgeous day at Pine Grove Furnace State Park, with a great group of folks. Good pace for me (10.4 min/km), with mass start and following allowed. Course Pack broke up before second control window. One parallel error on way up from E-F, looks like drifted left on way up the hill from trail--cost me ~5 mins, due to relocate and climb again. Slowed down a bit after that, too. Lots of fun, and next year I'll run Long course!

    • Trail running 1:12'55.1 Average heart rate 165 bpm, 7.50 km

      Bushwacker 2012. Fun day in the woods! Ran 2nd leg of relay, with option of sticking to marked trail (nah) or bushwacking to shave some distance off the ~10 km course (yep!). Team mate, Alex, got us a great start & we placed 2nd in class/6th for all relay teams. Very enjoyable run! Hot, so shady forest was nice. Pretty good contact with map; minor nav probs/focus drift added up to ~5 mins. Route on map here is freehand--no GPS allowed. Distance ~7.5 km, for ~6.8 km/h moving avg.

    • Crosscountry skiing 2:00'34.7, 8.51 km

      XC skiing at White Grass, with fantastic conditions, right around freezing and sunshine until dusk. Skied down to Gandalf's then up Springer Orchard for a few runs in powder (SW edge of track), then back to center and a lap around the snow farm. Will upload Memory Belt data separately -- for some reason Ambit dropped my custom xc ski exercise option after last firmware update. Would love to get back out here a few more times this winter!

        Thanks! It was nice, indeed. I went to pick up controls after our US Championship event in the Ultra Long foot orienteering. I was helping with the event weekend, so did not compete, but getting out there in the morning and again in the afternoon allowed me to enjoy this fantastic terrain. Added plus--the weather held off until after we were all back at the parking lot!

      Thank you for this route info. I'm going to use it this Sunday (10/19/2014) using my Ambit2.

      • MtnLivin


        Awesome, it was a really nice hike, even if it tok us a while to get to the trailhead in the morning. :-) And, hey, I hope you went all the way! My track that you linked was just up to our rest stop where I accidentally stop the move. The second part to the summit ridge, and back down was at: Second part of Yellow Aster Butte: move6525262 We actually turned around at the knob before the last bit of that skinny ridge line to the summit block. Please post pics!

      Current Heart Variance

      Training. ehrbus

      Training Helps you to find out your status of recovery. The heartrate Variance is the the time in msek between two heart beeps. If you are recovered the time has a high variance. The heart must not be in a steady rthmus. Lay down in the morning, take some deeply breath in and out. Is the value more than +/- 30 than it confirms you are full recovered for the next strong training. Is the value lower than +/- 30 confirms you are not recovered: Make only an easy training for active regeneration. Have fun!

      Karvonen Training Zones

      Training. Bucheror

      ------------------------ The Karvonen formula is the gold standard for training zones. It is based on your Reserve Heart Rate, the difference between your maximum HR and your Rest HR, rather than only the max heart rate. 50% to 60%: Recovery and weight loss zone. 60% to 70%: The heart starts to benefit from the exercise. Slow and long distance exercise. Fat is the primary fuel and therefore good zone for weight loss. 70% to 80%: Aerobic zone - This is the optimal zone to workout in to increase your cardio-respitory capacity or the bodies ability to transport oxygenated blood to the muscle cells and carbon dioxide away from the cells. 80% to 90%: Cross over from aerobic training to anaerobic. Training in this zone will improve performance and dealing with Lactic acid. Training in this zone is felt as hard. 90% to 100%: Red Line Zone - You will only be able to train in this zone for short periods of time. You should not train at this level unless you are very fit. In this zone lactic ...
