Do you track your training and recovery with data? If so, what do you do with it?
Brett asks, do you track your training and Recovery with data and if so what do you do with it? Good morning, Brett. Yes we've used first be to collect our training and Recovery data for the past 15 years and in particular, in the last five years or so. The science has been very clear in those athletes, who tracked, the training, loads and Recovery with HRV data tend to perform better than those who have just used a plan program. We use the data to calibrate how the athletes feel they implemented training with what the training data tells us particularly for Less experienced athletes. This helps them to learn and dial in the proper training. Intensity to achieve the desired training effect, we use the data to monitor the current training loads and to more accurately plan the future training, loads, Many coaches, use H, km or mileage, to measure the training. None of those metrics. Can accurately describe the total load of training. There are many methods to measure training loads that are used by different software platforms, but they all use some measure of intensity and duration. Then we also look at the recovery parameters. We typically do a three-minute test in the morning and then in assessing the athletes Readiness. We look at the Baseline, are mssd data and a standard deviation of the seven day. Moving average to determine the athletes of adaptability to training and whether adjustments in the program or delay of a hard session need to be addressed
