A gentle increase in climbing ability

A gentle increase in climbing ability

I went to Vitam to climb on Thursday and I went to Rocspot to climb on Thursday. I climbed twice this week because the Wednesday session went so well. The reason for which it went so well is that I am climbing regularly again. I climb at least once to twice per week, which is nothing by some standards but better than in the last two years. We started on Wednesday by climbing top roped routes to warm up. In…

Garmin Connect and the Daily Step Goal

Garmin Connect and the Daily Step Goal

Yesterday I took over 16,000 steps. Some of those steps were during a short run from Eysins to Nyon and the rest were during the walk around Nyon and back to Eysins. By the end of the day I had manage to accumulate the step goal of 15300 steps. With Fitbit and other activity trackers this would be fantastic because you would have met your step goal and you could look forward to meeting the same daily goal day after…

Usually I ride alone but for once I met with a Strava user and we rode at his pace rather…

When you get into a car after a hike or other activity that mistake will screw up your average speed and other data. Yesterday I realised that I had forgotten to stop tracking on my Suunto device and on my apple watch. With the Apple watch this was less important…

Replacing FaceBook with Meetup.com, Replacing the past with the present and the future

Replacing FaceBook with Meetup.com, Replacing the past with the present and the future

I have had a meetup.com account since I was using yahoo as my primary e-mail provider. For years my account was dormant because activities that I were interested in were either in another country or at a time when I could not participate. Recently I have found that activities are at times when I can participate. As a result of this I am building a new network of people to climb with. At the same time as my meetup habit…
