Would someone explain Wahoo to me? I see a bunch of people wearing them around here and trying to understand what is different from like a garmin...

I'm just back in the game and decided to get a Wahoo Bolt for my bike as it was only $200 and I liked the form factor very much. Garmin seems industry standard but Wahoo appears to be making huge inroads.

Best I can tell, Wahoo started with cycling indoor trainers before offering a simpler, cheaper alternative to Garmin head units. The heart-rate monitors work with a variety of apps on your phone, so I imagine that's why you're seeing more of them.

We may not have much in the way of hills on the island, but we have wind. Oh yes, we have wind. Today it was warm but the wind was punishing... and coming straight at me most of my outward leg. Unfortunately running isn't quite like cycling where the wind can almost push you home on its own, but it did help on the return leg.

24.4km again (just over 15 miles) at easy pace, so 2:15:47 or 5:34/km (8:56/mile) average, however the splits tell the story better: the outward leg was 1:10:41 or 5:48/km (9:20/mile) pace, but the return was 1:05:06 or 5:20/km (8:34/mile) pace. Actually the return leg was a little slower than last week, probably because I was knackered after running into the wind for 12km, but overall it was a little faster and I feel a lot better afterwards than I did last week.

Oh and 54m (177ft) ascent for those interested in the very minor variations in terrain we have here!

Four glasses of wine last night and the old body told me at mile six to turn around so I got in 12. The aging disease has struck again. I remember those days when I could drink until 3a, get up at 6a and doing a manual labour job all day, then go party again until 3a, rinse and repeat. Now four glasses of wine and a 9:30p bedtime are apparently too much for me.

9.4 miles yesterday morning at 8:22/mile. I ran past the site of the Friday house fire. Even with quite a bit of rain on Saturday, the smell of the burnt house was pretty strong (I can only imagine how the smells are out West where the big wildfires are).

3 miles this morning @7:07 pace. Not getting the longer mileage but at least trying to keep pace lower. Weather in the high 50s. Hope we turn a corner in So Cal and start hitting lower temps.
