As 2014 starts, ConnectStats has been out for a while now, and it was a quite exciting experiment. It gave me the opportunity to communicate with a lot of very interesting people and talk about a lot of aspect of training I had never considered before. So when I realised that my internet provider gave me access to a blog tool, I decided to give it a try. I already discovered twitter, thanks to ConnectStats. Why not try blogging too? Maybe a short lived experiment, but we’ll see.
Brief context about me. I currently run, bike, swim and play tennis. Originally I was more into running and tennis only, but after moving to London, it appeared the best way to get to work was biking, so got into that. The club I joined to play tennis here has a nice swimming pool and when Garmin came out with a swimming watch, I decided to get into that too. Developing ConnectStats is a hobby for my rare free time, I have a quite demanding full time job and a busy family life too.
I am not very competitive, I run slowly, bike very slowly and swim dreadfully slow. I haven’t yet found the feature to add to ConnectStats to make me faster, but I won’t give up that quest 🙂
The key allocated time to my training is my 10k commute to work. I try to run 4 trips to work a week and bike the rest. So total about 100km per week, and my best known distance is 10k…
I’ll try to post articles about the development of connectstats and how I use it to look at my different activities and progress (or lack of)
