Peg’s Posts: Step by step with FR60 and foot pod


010-11092-00_LR_100 How does the Garmin foot pod work? It uses advanced accelerometer technology to collect and send precise data about your movements. It’s 98 percent accurate, right out of the box and it’s so tiny, you hardly even notice it clipped to your shoelaces. It also fits in the foot bed of certain running shoes. Best of all, it uses ANT+ wireless technology, which means it can pair with multiple fitness devices. So,  if you and a spouse both have a compatible Forerunner, you could use the foot pod accessory interchangeably.

How do you train with cadence data? An article in Runner’s World described the optimal running cadence to be around 90-95 foot falls per minute (measured on one leg). With this new-found knowledge, I’ve been honing in on my cadence data from runs and was surprised to find out my average cadence is in the low 90s. I don’t attribute that to being particularly well-trained, but rather having a short stride that requires lots of them to keep up with the runners around me in a race.
