    Power Running - “The Future is Now

    in Sports

    Jim Vance is an elite triathlon coach who has co-authored “Triathlon Science”. He is a two time Amateur World Champion in ITU and Xterra and holds an IronMan PR of 8:37:09.

    I brought Jim onto our podcast because he has been at the forefront in research of Power Running.  Many believe that when power can be effectively measured in running, as has been cone in cycling, it will be a major game changer.  In sports science thus far; heart rate is the most effective metric used to identify work relative to performance.  This is an interesting time in endurance sport technology and our goal is to share some insight as to the potential of power as it applies to running performance.

    “All records, from 100 meters to the Marathon will drop, when we are able to effectively measure power in training”.
