I received this cool little gadget in the post today from the guys in FINIS Europe. It is an audible metronome that can be set to different stroke rates. I first heard about these devices from a triathlete friend who uses a Tempo Trainer for swimming. He suggested that it might be useful for kayaking. So I am going to try it out as a training aid for marathon kayaking. I am hoping that it will be helpful in developing stroke efficiency and timing. It can also be used for interval training and few other things.
I am really looking forward to trying it out over the next few weeks and posting how I get on.
