I’ve been using my Lumia 928 now for 2 and half weeks. I am in the Windows ecosystem so Win Phone 8 works great for me.
What I like about it:
What I don’t like about it:
I think the People “Rooms” could be really nice, but you need everyone on a Windows Phone which I don’t think is going to happen.
A couple of quick tips I’ve found.
I purchased the phone with a trial in mind. I had 14 days to see if I liked it and wanted to stick with it.
I’m sticking with it.
Amazon recently announced they’ve picked up an agreement with Viacom to stream all their Kids shows. This is the same agreement Netflix let expire a couple of weeks ago, see my earlier post.
I think Amazon Prime is a no-brainer now if you have kids for these shows plus the free shipping.
Buffalo Triathlon - 2013
I was happy with how I did this year. I cut 2mins and 30seconds off of my time compared to last year.
Leading up to the race I was very nervous about the swim because of how cold it was. I ended up getting a wetsuit 2 days before the race. This was the first time I wore a wet suit. It definitely makes it easier to swim. I cut 2mins off of my swim from last year.
The run went pretty good for me, shaving 2 minutes off of this as well.
I don’t know what happened by the bike was not good, worst of all triathlons I’ve been in. I only averaged 17.9mph. Last year I was 18.8 with a tops of 21.5 in my last tri of the season. I think it maybe held back because of worrying I would cramp. No cramps though!
I need to work on my transitions, but in all I am happy with the race and gave me a base for the season to improve on.
My next race is the Z-tri in Grand Rapids on July 4th.
Smart TV manufacturers need more intelligent marketing, according to a survey by Analysys Mason .
I am one of those. We have a Samsung smart tv and never use any of the smart features. The interface is slow and the remote is just cumbersome to make it worthwhile. I have a desktop hooked up to the TV with Media Center on it that works a 1000X better.
I’ve always had issues when racing and getting leg cramps. I rarely cramp up when training but when race day comes I push it as hard as I can go. I can honestly say that I probably have cramped up in about 75% of the races I have done on bike. It sucks. The only thing I can do is pull back and let it work out.
Last summer was an exception, I got some pills (capsules) as a packet stuffer at one of the races I did. They said there were to prevent cramping. I had nothing to lose so I took them. In my amazement I didn’t cramp that race. I continued to take them for the other triathlons I did last summer surprisingly no cramps!
So what was I thinking in not taking them before the Apple Du last weekend? I DON”T KNOW. It just dawned on my last night that I forgot to take them.
I also did some googling/research last night and the majority of what I found, suggested to take these capsules.
Yes, I’ll be sure to pop a couple before the Buffalo Triathlon this weekend.
In case you’re wondering what I take, they’re called Endurolytes by Hammer Nutrition.
