Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My garmin has that feature that tells you whether you're acclimated to the heat. How the Hell it knows that is beyond me. Anyway, I had a hard time on Thursday and it reported 92% acclimatization, 80% on Friday, and back to 92% yesterday. My body says that it lies.

I saw you guys talking about this before. Does wahoo do the same thing? I find it strange that it would know. I guess if you live in PHX than you are always at 100 percent?

Does it do the same thing for cold weather riding?

I had all intentions of getting up and doing a metric before the temps hit 90s but I’m moving slowly. Heading out soon and planning on low intensity and turn around when I feel like I’ve had enough and still get home, guessing 30 or so.

Who knows? It’s a relatively new feature.

I'm guessing that it looks at power vs HR or something like that. I know that I suffer through the hot rides early in the season and my power is just **** for the perceived effort.

Seems like I'm starting to get acclimated to the warmth. Not suffering quite as much as I was before. I'll see later today, though - not getting out until 9am and should be out through 1pm or so; forecast calls for low 90s again.

Im assuming it’s a combination of heart rate, power temp etc??

which Garmin?

I actually like the heat when my route is relatively flat, but I couldn’t take it yesterday. One of the hills hit 18% for a decent stretch (4-500 feet) and I actually had to stop. Can’t remember the last time I had to stop on a climb.

Raised veg bed update - it looks like I will be getting a good number of Thai hot peppers this year. The habanero isn't looking nearly as productive.

Dunno. I haven't looked at it too closely, but it's just not thriving as much - hasn't grown as tall, didn't/doesn't have many flowers. It also already had one pepper on it when we got it, so maybe it thinks it's good for the season.

This is what happens when we let our food think.

Indeed. The headwind is preferred in very hot weather.

One year, when I was still gardening for market, I still had 50 lbs. of habaneros on the plants when the first frost hit. I recommend mushroom compost, if you can get it. Worm compost if you can't.
With either of these, you can't use too much. It's always nice to have a little soil in the mix, for structure.

Yesterday's coffee experiment will not be repeated today. Back to instant. The real reason for the experiment was to see how it would affect me, for the very early morning drive to the airport. It passed that test with flying colors.

It's part of FirstBeat's algorithms, which I think Wahoo doesn't license and now Garmin just bought.

They're good, better than a lot of stuff, but still need a lot of work. I wouldn't (don't) focus overmuch on them.
