Technology Goes Bonkers

Today runners and triathletes have so much technology in front of them but it is how you use it with old school. My technology for my workouts is Garmin 920xt which displays everything for you, on the bike is power meter for cadence and wattage, and a speed sensor. My Wednesdays workouts were good because I was using the technology but also listened to my body. For 2 weeks on the bike, my right leg would take 30 minutes to warm up to really spin (low cadence, power and speed).  Then Wednesday my right leg actually cooperated to keep up the cadence, power and speed, which made the sprints fun. My heart race recovery from the sprints was good but could be a little better. The second workout of the day was run in my running class I teach, which was easier than expected. We did hill repeats, monitor speed and my heart rate for recovery were good. The non-technology was the rate of perceived exertion that needs to be in sync with the technology. I know I need to improve my power on the bike with cadence. Running improvements are cadence and form, which I keep my head to high. Need to be aware of my body form, rate of perceived exertion and technology to achieve my goals.
