Do you own a power meter? If not, I’m sure you have heard of them by now. All of the top competitors and age group athletes that want to get the absolute most out of their training have a power meter.
Here’s the deal: using a power meter while training not only lets you know exactly where you’re at in terms of intensity, but the data can be used to quantify training load and manage your performance.
What about a power meter while racing? For the athletes that know how to use it properly on race day, they have a HUGE advantage over you. Here’s how: they can use the Training Stress Score equation to determine the exact power output and speed that is required to ride a course in a specific time, generating a specific training stress, all of which allows them to run as best as possible off the bike.
Want to learn more about how athletes who either have a power meter AND understand how to use it a huge advantage over you? Check out episode 56 “Keys to an IRONMAN Race plan” and episode 68, “How to Dominate an IRONMAN Bike Course.”
