(Yes…it’s the 10th and the post says the 9th…but…I wrote it on the 9th and it’s technically still the 9th somewhere…so…the 9th it is.)
I’ve long since wondered what to do with all the random tidbits of things I collect each week – or the little thoughts that don’t quite make for a full post. But I finally came up with a solution: The Week in Review Post. This takes the place of my Weekly Mailbag – which is over on Slowtwitch. These are just quick snippets of things that I’ve found interesting. Nice and easy Saturday reading. Plus, a recap of my Weekly Mailbag post a well.
So with that, let’s get into the action!
Weekly Mailbag Over at Slowtwitch.com:
No mailbag this past week – been enjoying vacation! It will resume this week.
Posts this past week:
With the lack of Internet in the Seychelles…posting was ‘slim’. Here’s what was out there.
Stuff that I found interesting around the interwebs:
This may go without staying – but without the Internets, I wasn’t doing much Internet surfing. However, I did do some surfing on the way home, so here’s what I found interesting:
#1) Bike News Links of the week (from WashDC and beyond) – As a local I follow the WashCycle for all bike related news in Washington DC. But they also put together a links post each week with tons of other cycling related news. If your new to them, check em out…
#2 – Power Balance Bracelets: Some folks swear by them, others make fun of them. This post from the always in depth Sport Scientists covers them a bit more from a scientific point of view.
#4 – How does temperature affect brain speed: Quantified Self always has interesting stuff for those that like to track data, and this one fits the pattern quite nicely.
#5 – Triathlon America Update – No, Triathlon America is not an extension of the Team America movie, but rather a coalition of triathlon focused companies and organizations. Anyway…an update from them is there at that nifty link.
No random items this week…randomness will resume later in the week.
Actually, never mind, I do have a few random items now that I think of it…
#1) Garmin Forerunner 410 Review Timeline – For those curious – currently thinking next week. I’ll have some time this weekend to run through all the final photos I need and get it written up (remember, here’s all the stuff that goes into it.) I’ve been wearing the FR410 pretty much 24×7 over the past 3-4 weeks, so I’ve got a pretty good handle on it now.
#2) Return to DC – Now that I’ve returned to Washington DC…well…for 16 hours anyway, you should see a normal flow of sport related stuff again, with only the occasional travel type post tossed in (though, that’s not to say that I’m still not travelling near 100%, almost all international…I head back out again tonight).
#3) Thanks for the Amazon Support! – Thanks to everyone who used any of the links buying stuff on Amazon (even non-tri stuff) during the holiday season – I really appreciate the support of the blog! And of course, the links still continue to support the site – it’s not goin’ out of of style or anything.
Thanks for reading all!
