I use the Garmin Forerunner 305. I guess it would depend upon all of you "NEEDS" and "WANTS". The 305 has enough for me and the 310x is supposed to be better for the swimming portion, but not...

I used to think so, but I have changed my mind after making a 5k a goal two years ago. Then I ran a 10k as a workout not long after. I used to think a 400 was a killer.

Are you sure it was the diet and not just a bad day. I had a crappy swim today and have eaten properly for days. Just a crappy day and lack of mental motivation.

I still ride in a doorway, even though it is 60" wide and bi-fold doors. I will take pictures of the setup and post it up later if I get pictures taken.

Cadence question for running

What is a good or normal cadence range for running?

Is it similar to biking where you want to have a faster turn over rate?
