I wore Moxy for a 5k race today. I started it up and put it on well before the race started so there is lots of data from standing around and doing some warm-up (although lately I do very little to warm up). The race begins at 9:28:35 in the data and I ran the first mile in 7:19. Mile 2 starts at 9:35:54 and the time was 7:32. The third and final mile starts at 9:42:86 and I ran it the slowest of the three in 7:54. I finished the last little bit at a sprint and then did some walking/jogging for cool down. I will be interested to see the graph of this since my computer guru/husband is not home to help with that part.
I noticed that the readings at rest this time were in the upper 60 to lower 70 range when I first put it on which was lower than Thursday before my evening bike ride (reading was 80). Are muscles less oxygenated in the morning after a long period of inactivity? Maybe not as I just checked while I am sitting here and readings are still at 60. I had the monitor on my left outer thigh muscle again (rectus femoris?).

Dawn - Great to see you at the race and discuss the Moxy. For a first race with Moxy, I was delighted to discover that there were two of us. After using the device only a couple of times, and now only in one race, my only observation would be that the numbers seem extremely low compared to what I was used to with the previous prototype. I ran pretty hard (for me) the entire race, but wasn't going so fast that I was out of breath, stopping to walk, etc., but my numbers were in the lower 20's, and upper teens. I would have expected from my work with the previous device that I would be getting into the upper to mid 30's, then 20's in the final sprint.
I wanted to pull up the data from the device yesterday afternoon and discovered that the battery was dead (or something like that) and the device was not lighting up. I am trying a charge again this morning to see if I can get the data to share in this forum. Congratulation on 1st place in your division. Stu
