TrainingPeaks announces the release of its newest update: online data editing. For the first time on the web, athletes and coaches can delete segments of workout data like warm ups or cool downs, edit specific data points, and drop entire channels.
Thinking of investing in a device? USAT and USAC coach Adam Hodges provides the compelling arguments for training with devices, as well as a cautionary note as to when we might want to turn them off.
Heart rate is most often used to help measure intensity and maintain a consistent pace. However, heart rate can also provide key information about your current training status and level of fatigue. On this Valentine's Day, USA Cycling Coach Mike Schultz explains how you can "follow your heart" by letting your HR data tell you when you may be headed towards overtraining.
Having the ability to analyze training files (be it HR, Power, Pace, etc…) is invaluable to quantifying progress over time.
Heart rate monitors (and more recently, GPS devices) along with Power Meters have widely been accepted as must have tools for runners and cyclists during training to capture and quantify critical information for a given workout. Coaches and athletes alike can analyze their HR, pace and power outputs as the workout happened and be able to correlate it back to the qualitative feedback (aka: how they felt) their body was telling them for that session.
