This is my biggest issue with the ultra's, I just don't have the time to put into the training. About the most I can get in on a weekday is 10 unless I do a double and aside from the occasional one off, I just don't believe I'm doing myself any good by doubling up on the same day.

 

 

Why not?  Guys do doubles as a standard part of training all the time.

Looking at our white game.  I need to do better analysis but what I played with shows that without a rook we are in pretty big trouble if we give up the c column.  Ant other comments on our position there?

I also agree with Rg8. Rb8 is horrible. O-O is okay but leaves the h column pretty open. I can't find an immediate line with o-o that leaves us bad off but that open h column is an open sore.

2 votes Rg8.

Ordered the Garmin 310xt yesterday since my 305 won't hold a charge for more than about 2 hours (and I have a 2 1/2 hour race next weekend).  Seeing the screen and fonts on Juxt's newer Garmin at our recent race, this seemed like the best option for me.  I ordered the HR monitor with it, though I should be able to use my existing one (which has always been reliable).

 

Best piece of equipment I have ever owned.  Mine just keeps working and working.  

 

Speaking of my 310XT, I got my HR to work in the water.  My inner geek (paging Ted!) is so excited over this it's ridiculous.  Swim.  I always thought that HR was lower in the water, but I managed to spike mine up pretty good during the intervals.
