017: Running Tech - the Pros and Cons

podcast running Dec 28, 2017

 

 

Technology has paved the way for huge advancements in running.  While not many are going to argue the benefits of shoe updates and wicking fibers, the picture becomes a little less clear when you look at activity trackers and phone apps.  Have we become so dependent on technology that we are missing the human component of running and training?  

 

Today we will talk about: 

  • What is the point of heart-rate based training 
  • What are the shortfalls of HR training 
  • Why it can be incredibly helpful to have gps tracking on your wrist
  • The disconnect between pace tracking and HR training
  • Why a pace tracker on your wrist can help and hurt your ability to repeat different paces in the future
  • Why your watches race prediction time might not be very accurate
  • The inability of technology to measure heart, desire, and passion
