and its even better now - you can send power data to your head unit - very nice if you use software like garmin connect

So I had my first ride yesterday, tried an 8 minute test, but only had time for the first one.

"Career" is here; http://www.trainerroad.com/career/aliaird

I was a little tired for the test (long run day before) so hope I can do better on FTP soon but clearly I have a long way to go. Losing 7/8 kg wouldnt go amiss either...

Good start Gladys.

You should be well rested before doing the FTP test. Some say a complete day of nothing beforehand.

Looking forward to testing the TRelay DK.

Works a treat cat, plus some nice other tweeks if you haven't been using the beta ver.

Finally managed to complete Half Dome tonight. I normally miss out every second interval.

I've set 6 new power PBs in the last 3 rides so definitely getting stronger, and bodes well for Sunday's European champs. It may just make up for my lack of running recently. Once I'm recovered it'll be time for another oft-hated power test.

I've set up a team on Trainerroad if anyone is interested.

Not exactly sure what this all means - I guess its a bit like Strava but without going anywhere.

If you're on TR - then feel free to join up.

Hoping to get a Garmin later in the month... presume that is all I need to get going on TR?

You don't need the garmin head unit.

Just a compatible turbo, http://www.trainerroad.com/equipment-checker

an ANT+ speed sensor, http://www.decathlon.co.uk/ant-speed-rate-sensor-cycle-computer-id_8181211.html

an ANT+ stick http://www.wiggle.co.uk/suunto-movestick-mini/

and a computer.

You'd not have the ANT+ stick that reads your speed sensor ?

ah, seems I have no clue! I think I will spend now and worry about getting it all to work later! Cheers Cougie

don't all / most of the Garmins come with an ant stick anyway? I know my 910 did. but as Cougie says you wouldn't necesarrily need the garmin to use traineroad

I know my 500 didnt come with one - but I'm sure there are other packages.

From what I've read- if you havent got one - get the Suunto one rather than the garmin one. Its cheaper and smaller - a few people have broken the garmin one as it sticks out of the laptop quite a bit,.

You'd bliddy hope so, given the price!

The 910xt will come with one because it transmits to the computer via Ant+ to save workouts. The Edge 500/800 connect via cable so don't come bundled with a sensor. Not sure about the 510/810. Check with DC Rainmaker

Oooh Vectors - nice.

Did you get any haribo with them though ?

No! And nor did I get the tool which I needed to install them (a 15mm crowsfoot spanner for torque wrench!) with was a little annoying,

The nice local DPD driver left a 910XT with a neighbour for me today as an early birthday present. So once I get a cadence/speed sensor sorted I'll be getting onto this!
