Quick question for Garmin and the like users. I have a target time in mind that I would like to complete the run in. Is it a dangerous tactic to set the Garmin to alert me when my average pace drops below that needed to achieve my target? I am thinking it could panic me etc and throw me even more off track.
Have you got the 910XT? If so, maybe use the Virtual Partner? My ride/run sessions are all uphill or downhill so i can never maintain a steady pace/speed throughout the laps. If i see that I'm behind at certain points i can put in a bit more effort to 'catch up'. Is good over longer distances particularly - especially when i can do a bit on analysis on the PC when i get back and measure it against my HR...
ultimately though, I haven't done this as a full on iron distance race/brick so i expect to bike and swim slower on the day than i am in training. dont know if this is a helpful comment or not
