Running with Power Meters has exploded in popularity in the last few years. Taking the baton from their cycling counterparts, elite runners have begun to embrace “power” as a key metric to guide their training.
As the cost of running power meters comes down, it’s time for recreational runners to get in on the act. Many runners are noticing that “watts” is already displayed on their Garmin or Apple watch. Others have invested in foot pods from Stryd. Now the question is, how do we use power to improve our training.
My guest today is Steve Palladino. He is head coach at Palladino Power Project and an expert on running with power. Today, he is going to give us the 101 lecture on why running with power meters is the future.
