Garmin 735 XT Review

When Garmin announced the 735XT I was actually in the process of shopping for a new Fitness watch that could do relatively everything. I had become disenchanted with the Apple Watch Series 1 and its lack of features geared towards hardcore athletes. I was especially disappointed by its lack of reliability when it came to GPS tracking of activities and an inability to export activity data from the default Health app.

Thursday Tech Tip – Faster Garmin Uploads

Thursday Tech Tip – Faster Garmin Uploads

A quick tip today for those who own Garmin fitness devices that don’t automatically upload via WiFi. Such as the Garmin Forerunner 910 XT or 210 or Fenix v1. Recently, I noticed that my uploads using the Garmin ANT Agent or Garmin Express apps on Macs were taking a long time. They uploads were especially slow on sites like MapMyRun and RunKeeper that integrate with those apps. I figured, that part of the problem was that the sheer number of workouts I have recorded must be slowing down the process.

Thursday Tech Tip – Garmin Workouts

I’ve been under taking some of the most complex workouts I have ever tried after starting my new training program with TriDot Training Systems. Many of the workouts involve warm up, interval, cruise and cool down phases/steps with specific duration, heart rate, pace, or power/cadence goals for each segment. After doing the first couple of workouts, I realized that printing them out or glancing at my phone constantly to see what step was coming up next was just not going to work.

The Training Formula

The Training Formula

I’ve been at this endurance sports thing (1 hour or longer events) for a few years now and next year feels like it will be my senior year in the my endurance training education. Through those years I have definitely seen some grade A performances but there have been some F’s and everything in between. Reflecting back, I think I have finally come close to defining the training formula, that allows work/life balance along with injury prevention. The tips in this post come out of all of my collected mental notes from the past few years. This guide is not a one size fits all, but a blue print I have found that works and that you can tailor for yourself.
