theres some ski goggle maker whos incorporated a LCD readout into the lense of the goggle so that you can see training info without looking down at a watch or computer.

look forward to that tech making its way to sunglasses.

be like playing a videogame where your HR and speed and time in zone are at the top of your field of vision.

When I rode yesterday I set my MPH into a target range since my PT batteries died. There was also an option for HR range. When I was above or below the target range my 705 would bark at me.

Personally I thought it was the product of Interbike 2010 but I was waiting for a working unit before stating it. But I'll say it now. It's the product of the show at Interbike 2010, if I were to choose one.

Retail was expected to be in the range of a few plus one decent quality tubular tires.

I haven't looked at the average speed of a training ride since getting a pt.

Let me guess, you're the kind of person who would do really well on a test but b1tch about it because you thought it was okay only to get an A.

With the prices Oakley and Rudy charge, they should already be including a laptop with every pair of glasses purchased.

If you didn't get an A then by definition you did not do very well on the test.

Depends on what the test is testing.

In an intro course, sure. In a quantum physics course, probably not.

I feel you on that one. srsly. I now understand what it means to work as a tech for anything electronic and getting the blame for something that was COMPLETELY out of your control. Sigh...

Tomorrow's a new day. Feel better!

Well if it's graded on a curve and you do well then you still get an A. In other news, this argument is stupid.

In old news, I am also in a bad mood, since I still have a migraine. Week five. No, really.

I'm still waiting on our network-services guys to get one of my floors up and running before I can go home.

I'm going to have a nice stiff drink when I get home.

I have found a work around for power based interval workouts on my Edge 500. I create the intervals in Training Center without targets. Export the workout to a folder on my hard drive. Drag the workout to the Edge 500 workout folder. Then manually put the power targets in on the Edge 500. You just want to make sure not to send workouts directly from Training Center to the unit after that. Use the folder on the hard drive as backup for you workouts in case the unit craps out.

May be old news but I haven't seen it written up before so...

Repeat of Base 3 week 1 this week. (I'm on a 2 on 1 off schedule rather than 3 on 1 off). Kicked a mild cold last week during rest week without losing too much training time. Yay!

Mostly tempo for 70 minutes today with seated low rpm power climbs on small hills. Feeling pretty good after rest week. Indulged in a couple yummy chocolate chip/toffee cookies someone had out at work. I love burning calories (and them replacing them)

I read an interesting article a while ago about how flawed the concept of curve are at higher level schools. Something along the lines of the population of the class is clearly skewed further to the upper end of the spectrum, so it doesn't make sense to curve to an "average" grade (say, a c).

anyway, even on the tests where the average is somewhere around 50% here there are generally some kids who score perfect or almost perfect...

I agree somewhat. A lot of schools do curves for grade inflation.

However, the science classes that I took on the upper levels had exactly the thing that you described: a few people got uncurved A's but the avg was about a 60. The point of the exam was to make everyone think and apply info they had learned in ways they hadn't before, so an A meant they went above and beyond, a B meant that they kinda got it, a C meant that they got the base material taught and were able to replicate it but not apply it, and anything below that meant that they had nary a clue what was going on.

In HS, my AP Calc teacher gave us copies of exams from princeton. She told us this after we took them. They were easy as hell. Our class average was a high B. The class in princeton that took the test had a mid C average if not lower (might have been a D). So yeah...

It has crossed my mind that she made up the princeton story to make us confident going into the AP, but I'll give her the benefit of the doubt. She also gave us power naps in class. Man I miss that class!
