  • What tech-type stuff do want to learn about? (Asking for your help)

    Dear @gregk,

    One time listener, first time caller. Why does my Garmin 735xt sometimes lose count of my laps? Same pool, same wrist, same disorganized stroke. Sometimes it overcounts, counts 1/2 lap, or undercounts. 25M pool, avg swim = 20 to 30 laps, generally without stopping (I use a snorkel).

    The half lap thing is weird but over/undercounting laps has to do with change in speed (or lack of). If you just turn at the wall and swim away without a bit of a push, the lack of acceleration can cause your lap to be missed. Similarly a mid-lane sudden acceleration to pass that annoying breaststroker gets you extra credit. Sometimes 2 extra laps if you add a really forceful kick once you’ve moved in front of them.

    9:30 am. I had a lane to myself for 1/2 my swim, shared with one other for the rest. Hub also had a lane to himself for most of his swim. They had 3 lanes open when we arrived & no one swimming. A woman got in just before us, took the medium lane and then after breast stroking a few lengths, sized us up and moved to the fast lane. I got in the slow lane, hub the medium, and we both swam faster than her. LOL.

    Thank you @Granpa Chook for the pool recommendations. I ended up at Matt Dishman where other than my lane mate and the hub, I was about 40 years younger than everyone else there. Awesome!

    Also these 25 yard pools make me feel like I’m a super swimmer. All the turning. So many PRs.
