Q&A #122 - Metrics to track (and not to track) for beginners, intermediate and advanced athletes; The Power Duration Curve and WKO
  • What metrics should triathletes of different levels (and different levels of training/coaching and technical literacy) be tracking?
  • The danger of trying to track too many metrics, and tracking irrelevant metrics
  • What is the Power Duration Curve, who would benefit from using it, and how? 
  • Is it worth it to buy WKO for training analysis purposes for self-coached athletes?
