Gear Upgrades

I've been working on upgrades of two pieces of training gear this week.

The first is upgrading my understanding of the Garmin Forerunner 305 unit that I have had for several years. In addition to learning to reprogram the run and bike screens to display in a way that I find preferable. In addition, I have added a speed and cadence sensor for my bike to supplement the Garmin's data.

The second upgrade is a bit more significant. I have added a new bike to my equipment list. Here is a photo of the bike leaning up against the back of my car:

I took it for a short jaunt around the block yesterday to check the pedal/shoe cleat connections and then for a 31 mile ride early this morning. It is going to take a bit to get used to a tri-bike as opposed to a road bike, but I can see that I am going to like this new bike. One thing is for certain, it sure can move down the road!

YAY!!! What a difference in bikes. I have a road bike and when I test rode the tri bike I fell in love.Enjoy your new bike. MY garmin kicked the bucket. Looking for a new one.

My garmin died, but I'll get a new one soon.

Great bike - now you're going to be impossible to keep up with :)!
