Today I’m joined by coach Will Kirousis of Tri-Hard Endurance Sports Coaching to discuss a variety of training related topics. I’ve known Will for many years and know him, along with his partner Jason Gootman, as among the finest coaches in the business.
In today’s podcast, we discuss the concept of Intensity Metric Triangulation, which is simply an approach that helps to empower athletes to better understand what their power meter, pace meter, heart rate monitor and perceived exertion level are combining to say to them.
Taken further, and most importantly, Intensity Metric Triangulation helps athletes understand how to adjust and perhaps modify how they are executing a training session based on the feedback they are receiving, both objectively from the training tools they might be employing, as well as subjectively from the information their body is sending to them. In a nutshell, Intensity Metric Triangulation is a simple to use system that helps the athlete know better what’s happening inside in their body and how they might want to adjust training as it evolves.
Will and I also have some fun discussing a variety of concepts that I know will be helpful to consider for any endurance athlete, from communication and self awareness to logging training data to understanding the value of each of our own unique personal histories. These are key players in our ability to train smart.
One last thing: JOIN Will and I at TRI-MANIA Boston Summit and Expo on March 29, 2014. All information and details can be found here: http://www.tri-mania.com/Boston.htm. Among many other great speakers, clinics and vendors, Will and his partner Jason Gootman will present a seminar on this topic, Intensity Metric Triangulation at 10:00 AM. I am presenting a seminar at 3:30 PM entitled “Lessons From The Gait Lab.” Its going to be a great day all around. We hope to see you there!
