Your achievements are great.Fastrack said:As a duathlete now concentrating on my better talent of running I am amazed by Rob3rt's comments. Currently ranked 3rd in my age group in the Uk over the marathon distance, you simply don't get there without pushing close to the edge. Resting heart rate isn't sensitive enough and aches and pains are part and parcel of the over-reach phase of training. By the time you get to loss of motivation or falling ill you haven't got near to the edge, you have fallen off. I admit I have been there too and that is why I am trying iTHLETE. I am not happy with 3rd and I know that if I do the same as last year then I will be 3rd again at best. I need to go to the next level in a controlled and beneficial way and that is where I believe iTHLETE could come in. There has been lots of good studies on heart rate variabilty but so far no easy way of measuring it. If you already have an iPOD or iPHONE the iTHLETE seems a very simple and cost effective way of using HRV. The whole elite world of performance is talking about training smarter. Time to get smart Rob3rt!
