Power meters for running have arrived, and they will revolutionize the sport of running. Run with Power: The Complete Guide to Power Meters for Running introduces the use of power meters to running and triathlon and shows coaches and athletes how the revolution will begin. As coach Jim Vance says, “If the stopwatch was equivalent to a typewriter, then today’s GPS wrist units are like a flip-phone. The portable power meter for running is the next step, equivalent to the laptop, tablet, and smartphone coming into existence all at once.”
Run with Power is the groundbreaking guide runners and triathletes need to tap the true potential of the running power meter. From 5K to ultramarathon, a power meter can make athletes faster—but only if they know how to use it. Just viewing numbers on a screen is not enough; athletes can become faster, stronger, and more efficient only when they know what their key numbers mean for their workouts, races, and season-long training. In Run with Power, Vance offers the complete guide to running faster using power-based training methods.
Key concepts explored in Run with Power: 3/9 Test, 30-minute Time Trial Test, Running Functional Threshold Power (rFTPw), Running Functional Threshold Pace (rFTPa), averaged and Normalized Power (NP), Intensity Factor (IF), peak power, Variability Index, Efficiency Index (EI), speed per watt, Vance’s power zones for running, Training Stress Score (TSS), and periodization with power. Includes 6 testing methods and 8 power-based training schedules and workouts for 5K, 10K, half-marathon, and marathon.
